    I have been reviewing some of the video footage I have taken in Africa and came across this short video. I apologies, as it is a little shaky (must have been the excitement). The area is near Bietbridge on the Limpopo river and the this particular spot is where they dump oranges from the orchards on this particular property. As you may guess, they do not allow shooting in this spot and all game must be tracked away prior to shooting. This is ensured by a game scout that must accompany the hunting party. The heard of Eland numbered about 52 animals with at least 6 bulls that where takers. Note the Warthog, my ph estimated his tusks at + 15" in length.

    Citrus as bait. I here it works on Elephant too. Hard to keep them away after they taste it.

    Thanks for the video of a nice large herd or two of those Eland.


    So, anyone want to help out a blind guy and point out the Warthog. I know this is going to get me in trouble but.... I have to ask.
    I see Impala and Eland and for the life of me I can not see the Warthog.
