    Default SOUTH AFRICA: Back from 1st Plains Game Hunt in Limpopo

    Just got back from my first ever plains game hunt near Thabazimbi, Limpopo RSA. I hunted with Johann Combrink and Numzaan Safaris. Could not have expected a more awesome experience. Shot 7 trophy animals and can honestly say Africa has sunk her hooks in deep...already starting to look into Zimbabwe for buffalo......Here are a few pics.

    Cape eland - 36 1/2" 2 full days of stalking on foot culminated in this guy. Had 2 others in my sights but never clear shot with too many cows.....thankfully this one came along.





    36 1/4" bull



    Waterbuck - just shy of 30" (29 5/8")



    Kudu - my only disappointment and really not even one at that. Just a good excuse to shoot a better one next time!



    Random rhino and calf shot from one of the 20,000+ acre properties we hunted.



    Blesbok - 18"







    Puff adder..... 1st of 2 we encountered. At least we didn't see any mambas. I hate snakes.......

    Glad to hear you had a nice safari, I got to meet your outfitter when they were at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI in February. Really like your eland and waterbuck!
