    My name is James, just joined a few days ago and thought I would say HOWDY. I'm an Avid Whitetail hunter and trying to get over our Buck Season being over yesterday. I've been to South Africa a couple of times so I'm sure we'll be talking soon. JRH

    Louis,
    I hunted the Northern part of the Limpopo Province both times I was in Africa. My son and I just got back right before the World Cup. We will probably do something different in a couple of years.

    Regards
    JRH

    Hi JRH

    Well the beauty about South Africa is there is no shortage of variety!

    Thanks for the welcome Bob. We didn't notice alot of the people because we just trying to get out of the country before everyone else got there. Our outfitter told us that the airport would be a madhouse when the soccer fans started arriving in full force. James

    Hey Louis,
    I know its been a couple of days but I thought I would drop you a line. My son Brett is 29 and my best huntin' buddy. He and my wife both were with me in 2008 and they both had a blast, my wife doesn't hunt but she went for the adventure. Brett and I have been hunting together for 20 years and we are getting pretty competitive. He hunts on our South Texas lease with us and we have a lot of fun.
    Thanks for the interest, James

    Hi James

    Thanks for sharing it seems that you and your son have a good competitive relationship, I always like a bit of that in camp it keeps things interesting LOL.

    You took some really nice trophies that bush buck is great!

    Best Regards

    Hi JRH,
    Welcome to the forum. Thanks for sharing the photos. I agree, that is one magnificent Bushbuck. A lot of locals go their whole lives hunting in South Africa without ever seeing one like that.
    Awesome stuff!

    Best Regards
    Marius Goosen

    Welcome James

    You should try Namibia for your next hunt, which will be a different experience to South Africa.
