    I can not say I have been on this property. I have literally been hunting right next door across the road.

    It happens to be where I hunted Bushbuck. There were certainly Bushbuck present.

    Travelling to higher ground is done quite often to hunt Eland, Gemsbok, etc.
    They do better up in that biome.

    Sorry I can not be more help.

    I hunted the property for one day and I got my trophy.
    I am certain with more time I could have chased down a larger specimen.
    I was quite satisfied with my hunt on the property.

    Gman, I'm sure you'll have a good hunt. Even if you don't bag that trophy animal, remember- just being in Africa is a trophy all its own. Here's to a successful hunt. *offers a toast*
