    Hi Bob

    You and me both want the next hunt to be as successful , it wont be for the lack of trying that's for sure.

    For the other members who want a story , there is always a story with every hunt. In a brief note it was taken again pretty early in the hunt day 3, so not too much to tell. It was a really good old bull no hair on tail, thick worn tusks and due to all the rain we have been having, getting around was tough plus there was crop raiding going on in a few places but not as much as normal due to the abundance of rain and available food. We passed up on 2 younger bulls on day 2 .

    It is still raining in parts of the country with rain fall records been broken this year all over, dams are full in most parts , rivers are running so its awesome being here witnessing this as it sure does not rain like this every year.

    All the best. Safe hunting to all.
