Let the hunting begin
Good Day All
I've been following, investigating, searching, you name it on this web site and forums for the last month now. Probably addicted to it. What a great site and interactive forums. Loads of info, tips and advise. The picture gallery is only to get jealous of.
Wer'e leaving early tomorrow morning for our first hunting trip for the season. Absolutely looking forward to it and can't wait.
How about some biltong recipes. Or have they been carried over from genenartion to generation and is highly confidential. :D:D:D

Yes, in Centurion, South Africa. Off to Marble Hall area, Limpopo, early tomorrow morning.
Alright. Here is my recipe and process developed through trial and error and incredible consultation.
