    Tomas used my 308 Tikka with 150gr ammo.

    Ph; Myself
    HO; Myself

    Hunt took place on different concessions, High fenced and low fenced properties.

    10/04/12
    We left the lodge at 4-15am and arrived at our hunting destination at 6-45am.
    Tomas got his Kudu

    Kudu went down on the ridge and we waited for help.
    Relaxing while we wait. Jiri went with the owner to look for Gemsbok while we bring the Kudu in.

    Few hours later we got to the skinning shed, of loaded the Kudu and went back for Impala.
    Tomas did well on the stalk and we managed to take a ram

    Jiri got his Gemsbok after many hours stalking and at the end of the day we had them in the salt

    We tried once more on the Warthog, no luck.
    We went for Tomas's Blesbok because it was the last day of theire hunt.
    We put in a good stalk and he got his Blesbok.

    We had Bushpig at the bait, my hunter was just a bit to slow.
    Hopefully you have a bit of moon shine to see them or are you going with a pack of dogs. Good luck on your hunt.
