    Cant wait until august... Going to visit Willem and Koedoeberg for a few days hunt. Hoping for a Blue wildebeest, a Warthog, a Bushbuck and maybe a huge Kudu....
    Bushbuck are my nemesis and IMO the best looking animal in the world...

    I can see August is going to come slow for you. I have not looked at Bushbuck as one of my target animals, but looking at the pic you attached I can see the attraction. I hope all of your dreams come true in August.

    Good luck on your hunt Trond hope you get some good ones. Bushbuck are a very beautiful animal and I have one on my list for next month but they can be dangerous as well if wounded so be careful and shoot staight I want my friend to make it back home without any new holes in him. I'm trying to make up my mind as to which one I'm going to have a full body mount done on the Warthog, Bushpig or Bushbuck guess I'll have to wait and see what I get. Again good luck on your hunt I know Willem will do a good job for you.

    I will share one on my facebook so you can see one my Friend and PH Rusty and his client took about a week or so ago. Bob

    Thanks Bob, and thanks Stretch.
    Bob, you really dont consider to full mount a warthog? They are so ugly....lol, but maybe just because of that it would make a special trophy.
    I definitly would make a full mount of a bushbuck if I could afford it. Just look at the colours...
    I will do my best to shoot straight, hopefully with my bow but I will rent a rifle, if thats whats required.
    Edit: Please post the photo from your friend Bob. I would love to see it.

    Full mount of course!
    The northern or Limpopo Bushbuck by far the most attractive of the South African species. Good hunt as well.

    Good luck with that Bushbuck. Certainly one of my favourites.

    Thanks, I have great expectations allthough I think they are elusive and shy beauties.

    I have an appointment with a bushbuck in September, on the banks of the Limpopo.
