    Most Under Rated African Trophy

    The common bush duiker eluded me on 4 past trips and 4 different countries till last year in namibia which isn't considered a hot spot for them.I would rank the vaal rhebok as an underrated trophy,as most Americans don't even know they exist and are very challenging in their habitat.Sitatunga is...

    cobra eating snake

    We found this cape spitting cobra eating another snake and we pulled him out from under a bush. He started throwing up the snake and retreated to the bush where we pulled him out again, now he was pissed off. I decided I wanted him for my collection so I wacked him with the flat side of a machete.

    375 Rifle Choice

    Phil, I would second that on going with the Model 70 Safari Express in 375 H&H Magnum.Stick with a heavier gun, 9 pounds at least. That is what a sling is made for.There are several combinations of reduced loads that you can practice with if your into reloading.Your right about finding ammo...

    Opinions between Eastern Cape and Namibia plains game hunt

    The Eastern Cape is a good choice for a 1st timer.I would suggest that you consider hunting vaal rhebok as it is only found on some farms with hilly terrain and very challenging,you could also add a mt. reed buck as they are usually in the same area.
