    Taxidermy References In South Africa

    I used Trophex once. They were very bad in every way. I have now used Bullseye for years and they are excellent in every way. True artists, excellent work and service including shipping. Brian Gallup

    Flat nose vs round nose solids - What are the actual facts?

    I use CEB Solids on cape buffalo and they work perfectly as advertised. Generally my velocities in .500 cal are lower that what Michael likes to use and the result is the same, excellent. Not to change the topic but I want to mention that I have also used the CEB Talon on three cape buffalo...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Beware Mkulu Safaris

    My experience with Pieter Kriel, Mkulu Hunting Safaris is nothing but positive. I have booked another buffalo hunt with him this year. My wife and I have hunted with Pieter Kriel at Mkulu Hunting Safaris in 2018. It was a great hunt and I found Pieter Kriel to be among the best PH's I have...

    How do/did you pick your hunting outfitter?

    This post has been moderated by @AfricaHunting.com. Hi Dan, XXXXXXXX of TWS is just an asshole and does not deserve anymore explanation from me. I have made my points quite clear to him, several times, privately and publicly. I will continue to bad mouth him every chance I get. He...

    How do/did you pick your hunting outfitter?

    I have posted numerous articles and stories on these pages praising outfitters that I have used. My stories that I post here like 'Never Mind The Bull' and "did you Hear the Oxpecker" which praise the outfitter are published in The African Hunting Gazette as well. One of the big problems with...

    Bullets For Buffalo

    Witold, Thanks, Brian The blades of the Raptors went deep into the vital organs in a 6-9 inch pattern. The really do a slice & dice job there. The main core of the bullet goes deeper. Sometime right through, I'm told, but not in my limited experience. The Peregrine Bushmaster is an awesome...

    Bullets For Buffalo

    Get Close and Use a Good Bullet! By Brian Gallup I recently tested the Peregrine Monolithic’s Bushmaster bullet in .577NE, and Cutting Edge Bullet’s Raptor in .50-110 Winchester on four Cape buffalo. I’ve got some good news, but first a little background on the bullets. Both of these bullets...

    How do/did you pick your hunting outfitter?

    This post has been moderated by @AfricaHunting.com. Warning. I suggest that you do not hunt with TWS. Their lodge is located a stones throw from the local pub in a village called Kirkwood , I think. You will spend a lot of time sitting in a truck going up and down the highway looking for a...

    Winchester 1886 50-110 EX

    Your rifle/bullets will kill Cape buffalo very well. I have recently killed three cape buffalo in a row, DRT, with 50-110, at 1940 fps.

    First timer's questions about Cape Buffalo

    like some of you, I like hunting cows. ( It's the cranky and clever one standing beside the bull.) And I only take out old, worn out animals. I killed two bulls a few years ago, and then switched to cows. More bang for the buck and often more challanging. I am not a trophy kind of guy. I have...

    Let's Talk About The 458 B&M

    I used the CEB Raptor .500 calibre 410 grain on three cape buffalo last year. All middle of the shoulder shots ( not in the heart) at 40 yds. and all dead right there. The muzzle velocity from my old single shot was just 1920 fps. That CEB Raptor in 500. cal. is amazing. Brian

    SOUTH AFRICA: Cape Buffalo Hunting With Kok & Seyfert At Buffalo Land Safaris

    I have a new buffalo hunting story, coming out in the African Hunting Gazette in the April, May, June issue. It's called "Did You Hear The Ox Pecker". In that story I used an .577 NE Peregrine Bush Buster bullet in 700 grains. The buffalo reacted like it was electrocuted! Awesome bullet. I...
