    Thank you Nyati and Bruce! Oh Africa is, indeed, in my blood! :) Every day now I am deciding what unnecessary costs/purchases I can cut out of my life to finance my return trip! And, yes, I've found an open mind is often the most effective kind when it comes to hunting - or anything else for that matter. It was fun and a good challenge to employ the bow, crossbow, and rifle!

    Whoops! I failed to scroll down and see the nice comments from Diamondhitch and Royal27 as well! Thank you! And, yes, Chris and Sabina really did provide a fantastic experience for me. I'm looking forward to more of the same in the future!

    Yes, I'm afraid I am hopeless now, enysse! But oh what an addiction to be blissfully afflicted with, isn't it? :)

    Here is a short video of Karen's Kudu hunt. As can be seen, we didn't shoot the first Kudu bull we saw;)

    That is a huge Kudu! The months of anticipation resonates here as me and my wife went through the same thing before our hunt in August. Congratulations!

    Thanks BigSteve57! I hope you and your wife had an equally good and exciting hunt! My months of anticipation have already started again in earnest for next year's hunt! :)
