What a great report. Thanks for sharing your experience and emotion. Well done on your trophys, I am sure you will remember those days in Africa.
The highs and lows of hunting. Thanks for the report Victor. Still looks nice and green at your place.
Welcome fellow aussie to AH. Some good info here and I am sure that you will enjoy your first safari. Enjoy the planning and if you require some...
Spot on @TTundra this would make for an excellent hunt.
Nothing beats hunting Kudu in the hills of the limpopo although, the Eastern Cape in May is magnificent.

Nice work Tim, the Wildebeest looks very natural. The Nyala on your other post is also well done.
I had all my capes tanned by UTS in 2015 and mounted to forms in Australia. They did a very good job tanning the head skins. I also got a flat...

Great hunt, that is a nice Nyala. What calibre is the Sako?
Great Story Marius, I just got back from a hunting trip, mainly chasing Reds but a couple of times there were some nice fallow encounted and as...
Sounds like you guys are going to have a great trip. Blacks didn't you also go to Africa in 2018!
Three in a row, good stuff.
My place is about to be hit by a cyclone. It is currently about 40 km away and just crossing the coast.
Great Photos Victor, Looks like you had quite a "party".
The country side looks fairly dry for this time of year.
Hey Chris, do it sooner rather than later. Go in 2020 and then again in 2022 sounds like a good plan.
@Matt_WY Your most serious issue will be bitten by the African Bug that has no cure, minor relief is obtained by reading hunt reports and major...
You are so generous to pick up the tab for the "rest"(y)
How about one picture now as a teaser.
Many parts of the country have been in drought for a number of years so stock numbers are already reduced. After all this rain there will be a...
There is also the problem of access to some of these areas. Flooding would have destroyed fences and roads and the clay soils will have to dry out...
It is certainly devastating for the families who have been through years of drought and feeding cattle to keep them alive and then mother nature...
Can't wait to hear more. I am really interested in the 450 Rigby so please give us your feed back.
Hank, you take us on adventures that few will be able to experience first hand. Thank you.
Good luck and enjoy the wait. You will have a good time with Karoo Wild safaris.
Dramatic stuff. Unfortunately the buffalo only had one option and that was to fight as I am sure he felt like he was cornered. Glad the guy was OK.
Hey @flat8 how does that 450 shoot?
As others have said you need to decide what you want to achieve. I have taken a 50" eastern Cape Kudu (Eastern Cape) and a 59.5" Southern Kudu in...
+1 am looking forward to this report. We need all the details.
I reckon he may be a problem to you now that he got the result he wanted.
Thanks for taking time to write your story. Nice trophies and experiences for a lifetime.
Leupold any day, at least if they break they fix or replace without a hassle no matter how old.
I am enjoying your story MikeNC
Wow, what a great story. Started reading and could not stop. I am looking forward to more of your adventure.
Thanks for a great story Bob T. I would love to do something similar one day.
Had a Minox ZV3 3-9 x 40 scope fail on a 308.
First I noticed the retaining o-ring on the objective lens coming out, I tried to push it back in...
Great report @IdaRam . Up close and personal is how it should be done.
Thanks for your report. You guys had a great hunt and many memories and trophies. Good stuff.
Sounds like a great report(s) coming.
Well done Philip. All of the Big 5 may only be a boyhood dream for me.
I look forward to the rest of your story.
I may weigh in on this discussion. I have one very real example with a push feed Remington. I was hunting a wild bull (Bovine) and after a long...
What a great story Charlie. You now have your Hippo and last years experience can now get filed under fond memories.
What a fantastic trip. You got some very nice Zambian species and a heap of memmories. Thanks for taking us on your journey. I am jealous.
I am only catching up on some of these reports.
Great story Tim, hunting, family and good times. You have some nice trophies there and I bet you...
Thanks @Von Gruff got my knife in the mail yesterday and hope to be using it soon.
Magnificant Sable. Could we have a story please to go with the picture?
Thanks for posting a report. You got some nice trophies there.
Great introduction and I am looking forward to LTA
Very nice to have 2 trophies down on the first day. By the way that zebra looks to have long black stripes.
Lon, Sounds like a great camp and things are moving. Good luck with your first hunt.
