    I went to SCS in South Africa.

    My plan was to hunt blesbok, gemsbok, impala, lioness,baboon, & jackal.

    I HAD THE BEST TEN DAYS OF MY LIFE. I was crying the last day because I had to leave the best friends I have ever made.

    I shot an impala on the first day after sighting in my .338 WM & .416 Rigby.

    The second day I had to hunt my lioness. Call it a "canned hunt" if you want I was damned near crapped my pants & DID puke after ward. My PH I & Johan Dupreeze, worked our butts off trying to find this bitch that had been released for 6 months. We tracked her all afternoon and finally caught up with her and I made a perfect shot and she died in 10 feet of the shot with my .338 WM with hot loaded Nosler Particaians. I had been charged by her sisiter the day before!

    The next day I went out and shot at a blesbok but missed as I had bumped my scope getting out of the toyota for pictures.

    I also hit a gemsbok that day then went to the range the find out my rifle was 3" high & 4" left of the Point of aim.

    I spent several days hunting kudu and finally found this old boy.

    We spend several more day hunting the "stupid " blesbok and passing on smaller kudu, red hartebeast, and other animals.

    I finally got this old broomed-off blesbok.

    I spend several more days hunting warthog and my wife taking pictures but it was the BEST 10 days of my LIFE.

    I can hardly wait to ge back with my "family" @ SCS and see Leeoux the lion dog, "G", his owner, Abie Stein, Paul, Daan, Kobus, Yakobus, and have them call me the crazy Pielkop again!

    ...Nice trophies!! That's exactly the way I felt the last day of my first safari! I had already started planning the 2nd safari the last night at the campfire! As they say Africa is addictive!!
