    Thanks of for the walk down memory lane Brick. I too have all those fond memories from that same little piece of real estate that allowed me to see what Africa could be. You have a unique way to blend your thoughts and experiences with visual digital images. I am a lucky man that I was able to grant a dirt nap to a old eland bull with an arrow, at this location. As I close my eyes and stare into the dark I see those inedible images. Thanks again Brick.
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Couldn't agree with you more Stretch it is an awesome read. I've never been there but I keep coming back to look and read again it makes me feel like I am there just looking at the pics, Wayne has missed his calling he is an awesome Author!
    Enjoy life now -- it has an expiration date.

    I guess being serious with the bow has taught me one good thing...how to laugh at myself. What an idiot. If I am gonna make it "this year" , better head to the airport right after lunch.

    84# Draw weight
    Arrows: 7595 Gold Tips 31.5 inches with inserts
    Broadheads: 220 grain German Kinetics 2 blade (Big Game - 795 +/- Grains)

    Same everything else but;
    Montec 125 Grain (Plains Game- 415 Grains)

    I can not be bothered to reduce my draw weight. It's set up and shoots well and I have no issues holding it.
    Pretty darn flat trajectory out to 70 yards.

    Thanks friend. I am gonna stick with my North American setup for plains game. If I try to bow hunt my buff in two years , I will bump up. My setup blew through a bull bison last year. It went between two ribs on the entry and centered a rib on the exit , cutting the bone into. The arrow went about eight yards after exiting.

    I designed and set up for Buffalo and never went back.
    Your NA game rig will kill all the plains game.

    if you don't have a sense of humour ,bowhunting wont be your cup of tea ,that's for sure d.f.a.
    I was tanked up by that time of xmas day mate , sorry if you think im an asshole ,I was just being a smartass.
    before we walked to the beach for some tippety run, beach cricket .
    if your bow can punch through a bloody big bison , it wont have any trouble venting the chest cavity of a huge kudu .

    Beach cricket...that's one I don't know, my friend. Where I grew up the only crickets we played with went on a hook and in the water.
    I am from Georgia originally , but now call Wyoming home (USA).
    As far as the koolaid , it depends on the mood. Most times it's Red bull and vodka , or whiskey and sprite.
