    That's incredible Royal27! Where are you hunting, and with who?
    I will keep an eye out for a bolt carrier! ;)

    I can honestly say I'm after the experience. But, I hope to take a buff and hippo while having the experience.

    In particular I can't wait to see the trackers work!!!

    On exactly the same page! For me it's all about the experience!

    Hunting up on the river you will have a great time I'm sure! I'm positive you will get opportunities on both, so the nuts up to you!

    Enjoy!

    This is going FAST!

    My last week was meant to be calm and calculated, but now it has turned out that I leave tomorrow! Not for the hunt, but to go leave home without being back before I head to the valley! Crazy that I must pack tonight! Just hoping the prep pays for itself in having most stuff organised already!

    so now between today and my hunt I have 5 days in Lusaka, then 2 days in JHB, then back to Lusaka to immediately leave for the river.........................eish!!!!

    Hey PeteG I gotta be in Lusaka this weekend, then have work with my sales team till Wednesday afternoon. Then Thursday I have a meeting in JHB which I will extend to see a couple of other guys. Then Friday morning I will fly back to Lusaka with my dad to head out.....................feel like a rollercoaster in terms of being well packed etc............too many different requirements right now..................anyway time to go make some cash before I head to Lusaka later!
