    Is South Africa Going The Way Of Zimbabwe?

    I was hunting in SA last year when the DA took much of the municipality's in those elections. At that time voters realized they were better off without the ANC. Let's hope for the federal elections they decide the same and oust the ANC.

    Any Surprises While On Safari In Africa?

    I was surprised at the longer distances to shoot from. I had been told 100m, in reality my closest rifle shot was 235m. All shots were from sticks, which I had not practiced shooting from prior to going. Also unless bow hunting from a blind you need to be prepared to shoot at 70m.

    July Safari is almost here! Last min tips please!

    I would spend time with the skinners as the worked on my animals after the hunt. They got to know my affinity for tracking the path of the bullet through the animal that after supper when I came to see them they would tell me all about how the bullet travelled through the animal and give me the...

    July Safari is almost here! Last min tips please!

    Shoot from sticks at ranges of 250-300meters. Pack warm clothes, jacket, toque and gloves. Even long underwear for early mornings. We had frost and -4celsius a few mornings last summer near Kimberley. Wore shorts on one hunt near PE.

    Why the 30 Caliber Magnums?

    I love my .300Win Mag Sendero. I can put two rounds at 100ms side by side so they fit inside a quarter. Now I won't shoot more than 20 rounds at a time as it will bruise my shoulder. Just love the round. Used a loaner 300 and a 30-06 in SA last summer. Both stopped animals in their tracks.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Summer Hunt With Hunt The Sun

    It was a .222 provided by our PH. I did not bring any of my own firearms. The 30-06, .300 winmag and .222 they provided were excellent to shoot with. I took the two Wildebeest with the .300; the Gemsbok and Kudu with .30-06 and the Nyala with a combination of my bow and the .300 (that animal...
