    Warthog Hunt



    My second safari was a trip to the Limpopo Province, RSA. My #1 trophy was a bushbuck. I booked a 10 day hunt and was told that the hunt would be hard since the rainy season had just ended and the bush was thick. It was 9 days before I saw my first bushbuck. In my excitement, I rushed the shot and missed completely. I had hunted hard and thought that I would be going home without my trophy. The outfitter told me that as a consolation that I could take a white blesbok (they normally don't hunt the white ones on this ranch). So on the last day of the hunt we decided to go back to where I had missed the bushbuck the day before. Luck was on my side and I spotted the same bushbuck out in the tall grass at 300+ yards. I took the shot and when I recovered from the recoil the animal was gone. My ph said that he heard a thump, he was more excited than me. After we recovered the trophy, I asked about my consolation white blesbok. On the way back to the lodge this nice tusker presented himself. The back of the Landcruiser was full. It was a good day.
