    Kudu Rifle

    Kudu are soft in my humble experience ! Anything will do, but .270 + is wise, just in case.

    Buffalo Calibers

    Hi I always used a scoped .375 H&H and an open sided .416 Rigby Roughly half my 12 Buff were shot with each calibre. Interestingly, the .375 shot buff expired quicker than the .416 ones, except for two which dropped to the shot by shooting too high. Bullet placement rules the...

    Buffalo Pictures

    Not as impressive as your pics Jerome, but here's the biggest I have ever managed. Shot in 1990 Kasonso, Zambia. Poor pics as light was fading and lions were all around us, as they had been hunting the herd I shot this from. We cut it up after dark and they never left us, coming within 20 yards...

    Anyone hunted Ibex in Spain?

    Hi I have some good contacts in Spain. If you hunt Bronze / Silver medal Ibex it's not that bad price wise. Also a friend of mine has a big area where you could shoot some Boar and Red Deer and maybe able to wangle you an Ibex as well. Email me and I will start some enquiries for you. All...

    What were some of your favorite meals while on your hunting safari?

    Day 1: I always try to get someone to shoot an Eland and tell them it's the most difficult of trophies. This way we get a huge supply of biltong for the next two weeks and it's the best ! That with a lorry load of cold beer takes care of all your nutritional needs of an evening...

    HUNTING Crocodile

    A 14 ft 2inch croc I saw shot in Mozambique by a friend of mine with a .308 last year. Neck / spine shot and it didn't move a muscle on receipt of the round. Having said that, my pal was under a bush and some trees and couldn't get an inch closer, so had to shoot at 100+ yds. I was waiting...

    Hi Wayne, Never happened to me, but these guys are getting ever more cunning ! Like the Thai girl adverts that pop up on these pages from time to time. Thanks for the hunt info. I have sent to a couple of pals. Let us know when your website is up and running again. All best Tony

    Hi Wayne Sounds like a very good offer. I will see if any of my guys might be interested. Could you tell me how big the area is and camp etc please ? By the way. I clicked on your website and a big phishing scam alert came on from Google. Thought I would let you know. All best...

    Hi J'burg International are pretty organised these days. I was there in October and all went smoothly. A guy will find you air side and take your rifles to the Police Station, which is land side. So long as you have all your forms filled in correctly, there is no problem. It's the...

    I agree. Wildebeeste can be armour plated if your first shot isn't perfect. Much to my shame, I once shot a Wildebeeste 5 times over a 2.5 hour period with .375 H&H softs, after my first shot, a 300 yds went a bit too far back. Worst of all, I was fly camping in the wilds of Zambia and had...

    Choice between 2 rifles for Africa

    Hi Definitely take your .308. All African animals are tough, especially the Oryx. A good heavy bullet for it, that will expend it's energy in the animal, not zip through. Good hunting ! All best Tony

    outfitter pricing?????

    Hi You and your hubby should get on a pane asap to Africa ! The areas we can hunt and the constant battle against poachers, government 'interests' ( often the same thing ), eco lodges and pure human expansion, mean that areas are shrinking fast. Best areas for total wilderness hunting...

    Then he caught them at midday, which was even worse. We then had him talk us through it all afternoon and there wasn't enough Mosi to drink to make it bareable ! He is not invited on our next trip Sept 2012 !

    Is the .375 H&H strong enough

    HI Joodowd, I have hunted with a .375 H&H with scope and a .416 Rigby with iron sights for many years. Funnily enough, the Buffalo I have shot with the .375 have all fallen dead faster than those I shot with my .416. Probably greater accuracy & bullet placement helps ! I have also shot...
