    All ready, packed and raring to go. I just got an email from Chris (PH). His current hunter just killed a nice Vaal Rhebok today and they saw a bunch more including a great ram farther down the mountain, so I have my fingers crossed. Just to frustrate all who have hunted Vaal Rhebok and failed they climbed the mountain on their first day after them and located the ram 270 yards over the first knob! Why dont I have that luck? LOL Either way I will have plenty of fun chasing them.

    However it turns out I will be sure to post plenty of pics on my return.

    Later

    Derek, they are no match for a sheep hunter.

    Good luck.

    Your right James, they are all fun but the ones we work for live forever in our minds.

    We'll see. I just hope they dont act too much like sheep or that other ram they saw is probably in another state by now!

    No worries Derek, that other ram started chasing the females of the one we shot before this one was cold... We may just get him in the same place...

    So many species to pick from and weapons to use, another reason to return to the dark continent. Another success story in the making. "Get R Done" Diamondhitch.
