    Hello,

    we have completed our second family safari in the Eastern Cape. The 3 of us were on a management hunt for 6 days and took 11 animals. The mountain rheebuck was on trophy hunt, he is awesome.

    We had a great time.

    And here are the pictures that the 3 of us keep on our smartphones, for the sad days without hunting.

    I will post videos links later, we have the footage of all the hunted animals.

    Hi spike. This year it was a 308 win standard barrel on my R8, with Remington Hoghammer Barnes TSX 168 grains. I turned to a smaller caliber because I save half a kilog on the rifle vs the 9.3x62 semi weight barrel and a kick stop in the stock. This time we hunted in the mountains and it was worth saving some weight.

    We were 2 hour drive north of East London, in Pine Pienaar Glacis Game Farm.
    PH was Jeremy "Happy feet" Scheepers, a fantastic guy.
    Outfitter was the same as last year: grand-Safari.

    Further proof that it is all about the experience!!! It sure seems that "management" hunter smiles are just as big as "trophy" hunter smiles! Love it...
