    Hi Nyati!
    I hope all is well! All I can say is wow!! I'm not anything close to an expert/experienced or even a mediocre huntress, but regarding that bush buck, how old do you think he is? I have only seen a few but I have to say he is an amazing old boy.. At least in my opinion. Let me reiterate that I don't know much, but I have to say I am very impressed with him. Remember that I am a complete novice when it comes to hunting, ( I had beginner's luck) however, I think there is a gene within me that activated once I went on my dad's buff hunt. Sigh, I believe I am making myself crazy!! Congratulations, and that eland is fabulous!!! I swear nothing in my life excites me anymore unless it has to do with hunting in Africa. Damn.. I think I am forever spoiled. Ruined beyond belief..

    Oh and I forgot to ask, what is the story behind those fantastic Warthogs? Well-done.. I love warthogs. So smart and tough.

    For sure that bushbuck is pretty ancient, and what a dandy too. Looks like mine only older. That middle pig is a whopper too! Must be 14 inches on his right tusk.

    Thank you all for your kind comments

    Yes, that Bushbuck is old, Gerhardo promised he would get me the oldest in the two properties he hunts next to the Limpopo, and he delivered. The coat on this animal is quite dark in contrast to the reddish color in younger animals, in fact the neck is black.

    As to the warthogs, Jane, not much to say, besides being somewhat of a fixation for us spaniards, the idea was to shoot one in order to attract a hyena. Quite a few hogs came to the waterhole.

    I shot the one on the left, which is quite nice, then came the one on the center, which I could not resist, then the female on the right, as these very nice curved tusks make beautiful necklaces for the ladies

    In the end, the hyena did come but left so fast I couldn t even take aim

    Saying that Warthogs are somewhat of a fixation for a Spaniard is an understatement.

    Very Nice trophies.

    I feel for you on the Hyena.
    You do have to be pretty fast on the trigger for them.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
    A Legend in my own mind!

    I second that!! If I live long enough after the last kid has moved-out, I plan on a visit there for sure!! I'd like to stay for a long time in the bush. Hope I get the chance to hunt again in Africa though. Sigh.. At least I have been lucky enough to experience Africa. I would like to live there, also in the bush..

    Your'e lucky to have been born in Australia Bluey!! I envy you....
