    Hi everyone. As promised, another hunting clip (very much abbreviated) with Gar Rodside (jnr) the day before his 12th birthday. Not a bad opening to his first safari in Africa, or a first trophy. He used a .270 rifle. Enjoy :)

    Here's the video:

    That young man can provide some shooting lessons for a lot of us.

    I am glad the fellow with the snow camo stayed behind for the stalk.
    I wonder if he ever took any trophies in that get up?

    Brought a smile to my face listening to that young man describe his hunt. Nice job Gar.

    Thanks for the video. It was great watching that young man shoot his first African animal and what a nice Kudu it was.

    Nice video. I watched the clip from the next day when he shot a Blesbok as well. That kid sure doesnt mess around when he is shooting! DRT.

    Kudu hunt

    Thanks for all the positive comments everyone. I'm leaving on another safari in a couple of day's time. Will be sharing some more hunting clips with AH members as soon as I can.
