    I am very happy that we don't have any mambas in the Eastern Cape. In 15 years hunting, I encountered the first snake last year. Beautiful Puff adder specimen. I would have had him mounted if he did not have so many holes in him.
    I'm seriously contemplating having my tracker carry my shotgun on hunts for the snakes.

    Marius, glad to hear there is few snakes in your area, i certainly got my fill in the DRC, back in the frozen north now and no worries of snakes! As for the tracker/shotgun combo, i think it is a great idea, especially during my trip! lol!
