    Welcome to AH Dan! It seems like a lot and it will keep you going but it's fun my first hunt was 9 animals in 7 days and I did it, yes the last one "Springbuck" was really pushing it 1 hour before dark but I did it. Your about to have the time of your life Enjoy, I leave on my next one the end of may.

    Welcome to AH! Good luck on your hunt! If you can afford a waterbuck, take one if you see a good one, 28" +. They are beautiful and you will not regret it!

    ansie dont think he is back yet as he said he was either going on 15th march or starting his hunt the 15th for 7 days, so earliest by my reckoning he finishes is tomorrow 22nd. we will have to wait. :zen:
