Well, it sounded like a good offer until I saw that ugly feller on the bottom right shooting that 7x57 mauser.....LOL. Great Offer! Jeff said some great things about your operation!
What is the cost for the transfer from the airport to camp? What additional species are typically available on these night hunts?
Jeff and I really had a great time, he is a SUPER GUY.
accipiter: You can expect to find
Genet (Lange and Small spotted)
White tailed Mongoose
African Wild Cat
These are just a few to mention.
Next hunt or so, I want a bushpig...missed out on the last hunt. Great offer!
What gun/caliber do you use or recomend for those small predators and still have a usable cape?
Whatever you use, use a "solid", I used Swift A Frame and they practical cut the small stuff in half with a 7mm Rem Mag. I would only use TTSX, TSX or the old Barnes X next time or any solid!!
This is a very good question and thank you for asking. In the past I liked to use a 12g shotgun but I soon got some instructions from my taxidermy to get rid of it or use something else. I now prefer to use a .410 shotgun instead. The 30-06 or .308 is also a very good caliber to use and a enysse mentioned a solid or Barnes X will work better in these calibers. I prefer to stay away from any caliber that is to fast for the dense vegetation we hunt in as most of the shots are taken in dense bush at short range.
I use a 170gr Rhino bullet in the 7x57 for small game such as Grysbok, Red Duiker, Civet and Caracal and a very good friend of mine Benand Els only uses Rhino bullets in his 30-06. For those of you who are not using Rhino bullets or can't get hold of them I would recommend any Solid or Barnes X bullets.
Here is a full size shot of my bush pig taken with Bossie. I was blessed with very good luck on this hunt, as I was with many animals taken on the trip. I got this big boar roughly 20 minutes into the hunt. It was the first bush pig that I'd ever seen.
Jeff, is that the Boss Hogg of bush pigs or what? You have an idea of how much that thing weighed?
Not really Bob. Bossie may have an idea. It was a big rascal and I was very impressed with the uniqueness of this creature... I don't think that I have ever been much more pleased with my kill than I was with this beast. They really are a cool critter!
The uglier they are the more beautiful they are! That one sure is ugly.
Bushpig hunt got into my blood this year, will have to try again in the future.
Bushpig, Red River Hog.
Man, that's nice!
You make ugly look pretty!
That's true talent, haha!
Awesome deal and the Bushpig is hi on my list, we'll have to see what we can work out.
ooooOoOo white tailed mongoose!
