    Thanks Everyone, just waiting for the old lady to get back home. Bags are loaded and we are ready to go!

    Phil thanks for asking (I dont mind talking about it LOL)
    We will be headed to KZN for 10 days to hunt Nyala, Bushbuck, Gemsbok, Waterbuck, etc as well as call predators (jackal, small cats). I have some specific goals but you know how hunting goes the day you are hunting Nyala in terrible warthog country is the day you find a gold medal warthog. At least that is the way some of my best north american trophies have come anyway.

    I definitely plan on taking everything in or at least all that I can fit into this small timeframe. Christine just found out about a 300m long zip line that is supposed to be one of the fastest in the world which looks to be close to where we will be staying so maybe buffalo and snakes wont be the only source of adrenalin!

    I will be sure to post plenty of pics and a hunt report on my return.

    Later
    Derek

    Brickburn I am sure I will be the major source of turbulence all the way there! LOL

    Good list. I like the idea of calling predators as a little extra!
