    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    25 - June Last day for our group at Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris. Short breakfast, couple last minute pictures of all the animals we've killed then loading up in the truck and headed back to Afton Guest House to relax for a bit before a late flight (1/2 our party) and meet our next set of...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    24 - June Cont. After everyone is back to camp we take a long rest and Diekie and I decide to go after the warthog with the snare on it's snout. We head to the blind around 3:30. Around 4:30/5 the animals start piling in ostrick, eland, gemsbok (all pregnant cows and a younger bull), female...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    24 - June My co-worker and his dad both have to head into town to go get covid tests. My father and I a couple days before departing, decided to extend our tip so we've got some time. My dad however wants to go with them and do a little shopping in town. Plus my co-worker and Dawie stopped at a...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    23- June Diekie and I had talked the night before about possibly running back up to the property I killed the bushbuck on to try for the waterbuck, the big kudu they had, and try for a Duiker. Land owner recommended we give it a day or 2 of rest and we decided to give it the second day of rest...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    Thank you .... I kinda cheated and took notes while I was over there. Much easier to recollect. If my handwriting was legible I'd just scan and upload that to save some typing.

    If someone hasn't jumped on this yet you need to reach out to James and Welsh. I did the other hunt and killed an amazing buffalo. I'll be posting a report but if anyone has any questions feel free to PM me.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    22 - June Today we head-out in the morning and go straight to a bow blind with the intention of my dad shooting something. We go to another ranch where Diekie likes to take bow hunters. They have a few other species he doesn't have and it's much larger with a couple big herds of buffalo. We get...

    Scope for a dangerous game rifle

    You might be able to find a S&B 1.1-4 Short Dot. The BDC wont correspond to your gun/caliber but it'd be my choice. I'd suggest trying to find one of the old ones instead of the later ones. Either will have an illuminated center dot with 10 brightness settings and off spots between each. Not...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    21-June This was probably my favorite day. Diekie and I get on the road bright and early. Diekie knows, Bushbuck is my number 1 hit list animal but I told him it needs to be daylight and on foot, I don't want to spotlight hunt one. 3:30 am and we're off the property headed to his Bushbuck honey...

    Does anyone know if Qatar Airways allows Duffel Bags to be Checked Baggage?

    I took the TSA locks and looped them through the zippers to secure them to the locking rings on the bag. Sure someone could've ripped them off or cut the fabric, but reality is if someone wanted in they'll get in regardless. That's even the case with a hardside pelican or skb type gun case...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    20-June, It's Father's Day. Plan was to go out at first light and drive around spot some animals then slip into the blind around 8:30 so my dad could try and shoot something with the crossbow. I had a blue wildebeest on my list, wasn't looking for something big wanted something old with a lot of...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    I was surprised as well. I had zero issues despite our plane departing Houston for DOHA being delayed several hours reducing our layover window being less than 45 minutes in DOHA. My co-worker flew from Atlanta, it was on time but he said upon arrival there was someone waiting at the gate with a...

    SOUTH AFRICA: Sable Hunt With Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris In Limpopo

    Just got back from my first and an amazing hunt with Diekie Muller Hunting Safaris. All the booking/planning started in 2019. This trip was to be a friend/co-worker, his father, my father, and I over Father's Day 2020, but like most people it was postponed a year. Diekie ensured the trip would...

    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    This is exactly why I asked if he had any of the recovered projectiles. If they expanded or mushroomed at all the issue is the batch of projectiles he has. I fully understand and get why he personally doesn't like them. I had issues with rage broadheads not expanding years ago. For this reason I...

    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    I wonder if the solid copper alloy was a little soft and because of that they expanded on impact instead of not expanding as designed. Obviously can't speak for the testing they did but I'm curious if they didn't test that since they don't manufacture the projectile they only load them. Did...

    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    What type of shots were they? Hard quartering away? or broadside double shoulder? I shot factory federal Woodleighs as well. I'm like your PH's and stunned they wouldn't pass through. I too wonder if maybe they tumbled on impact, or maybe there was an issue with that batch of projectiles...

    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    My .375 had zero issues passing through. After seeing them perform, I'll likely take a full box next time, rather than drop 5 solids in one of my boxes of TBBC.

    Does anyone know if Qatar Airways allows Duffel Bags to be Checked Baggage?

    I used a Red Oxx Safari in June and had zero issues checking it in Houston on Qatar or in OR Tambo.

    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    I had the opposite experience. Out of 4 shoulder/lung & heart shots on a buffalo my only pass through was the Woodleigh Hydro. The other 3 (1st, 3rd, & 4th shot) were all 300gr Trophy Bonded and lodged under the skin on the offside shoulder. All shots were under 40 yards. As long as he was on...

    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    This would be my recommendation. I took 5 rounds JIC with my in June and returned with 4 of them. For me they shot nearly identical POA/POI as the 250gr TBBC out to 200yards.

    Best Duty Free DFW-DOH-JNB?

    Duty Free in Doha just had the more common stuff when I popped in. The did have a Woodford Double Oak which would have been my choice taste wise. Tambo had an even smaller selection like stated above.

    Best Duty Free DFW-DOH-JNB?

    Not that you don't know given your handle, but unless he's got some connections with his local liquor store, he'll likely have trouble finding most aside from the Noah's Mill. UNLESS he's willing to pay some of the 300-400+ percent secondary mark-ups. I personally won't pay them. Our palette is...

    How long will Texas remain conservative?

    No arguments from me there or to @Probono 's comments. While I believe voting is a right not a privilege, I see zero issues with requiring an ID proving citizenship and your ability to vote to exercise that right. I need to do it to exercise my Second Amendment right why shouldn't I to vote.

    How long will Texas remain conservative?

    I can respect your opinion, but the framers of our constitution created the electoral college for the very reason of uneducated voters. My personal belief is as a United States Citizen you have the right to vote. This right is granted indifferent of your position, knowledge, or financial...

    How long will Texas remain conservative?

    I’m new to Texas but like to think I’m pretty in tune with politics, voting trends, and its tie to population changes. My personal opinion, but based on this last election, Texas is already pretty much Purple with the cities controlling the votes. There was a noticeable shift in voting within...

    Hey Mark, Thank you, he was shot in Public Land in NM last year. I actually drew the same tag this year hoping to top it. Ill shoot you Alan’s info. I believe he guides some trips but not sure how booked out he is at this point.

    @CoElkHunter If you bring a couple freshwater bass rods with 15lb mono you'll be fine. Run by Rockport Tackle Town in Rockport and ask for Alan. He'll get you set-up. You should be able to wade fish a lot of it, the surf was producing really well memorial day weekend from the reports I heard. I...

    More Texas warthogs!

    You hit the nail on the head. I can't tell you the number of days I spent on the back of a hay wagon or in the hay loft tossing bales in my late teens and twenties so I had a place to hunt for free. Helping split wood or loading my truck bed or their tractor bucket and bringing it up to the...

    More Texas warthogs!

    Having moved all over the country but not growing up in a state with Hogs I couldn't understand why everyone complained about hogs but always wanted money. I ran into landowners who wanted the state or local government to pay for their damages, poisoning, or other ways to control them, but...

    Unicorn gun!

    That's what I'm hoping for. I've had my eyes out for an H&H stock for a while now. Luckily my .375 H&H is a Super Grade and the stock is in really good shape.

    Unicorn gun!

    Awesome find, I've got a Pre-64 M70 in both 300 and 375 H&H. I need to replace the stock on the 300. I'd planned to take it to RSA this summer but the LOP is WAY too short and a few other things going on with it.
