      Thanks for all of your help and information about Texas! I have no idea when we will make it 'down there' for a recognizance mission, but when we do I would love to have a drink and swap a few 'stories'. :). By the way, nice buffalo! Being a bow hunter and not as young as I used be, I don't know of I will ever get to 'pull the trigger' on one or not....

      Have a great hunt with them. Hope you are headed back over soon. Just back from Namibia, and I am off to Argentina for ducks and dove next summer, so will be '13 before I can head back to Africa. Will try to take my son again. Can't afford elephant, so trying to decide whether to repeat leopard or buff.
