    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...

    Namibia (1), South Africa (3) & USA (most Western States, including AK & HI). Too bad spear fishing is not called "fish hunting" or, I could add a few extra countries (couldn't resist weaving that in somehow, sorry).
    You are a good husband to your wife and a good father to your children.
    I salute you for it.
