Fair question. But first let say my 2019 hunt I used TTSX’s vs TSX this past May. What I was expecting with the TT’s were what I mostly read “pass throughs” and clean kills. I didn’t lose an animal with the TTs but with the Oryx and Kudu, the follow ups were honestly within 15 yards with Jack...
Can anyone relate to this or am I just a TTSX jinx?
I used factory Vor-Tex TTSX’s (180 300 WM)on 6 plains game in Namibia 2019. The only animal I had a pass through and instant kill was a warthog at ~50 yards. All other bullets in other animals were recovered. Besides the warthog, a red...
300 A-Frames @ ~ 2650 FPS. Cape Buffalo @80 +/- yards. I’ll admit I may not have the bullets in correct order but my 1st shot was center chest. 2nd one in shoulder which put him down. 3rd shot was insurance.
Lori is rebooking me on Qatar as well. Looks like I’ll have a late night layover in DOH from ORD. Beggars can’t be choosy and glad that Qatar is stepping up and capitalizing on cancellations by other airlines.
I see the same. My flight is booked for 4/30. AMS is an option if I can’t get refunded. I’d hope that the Netherlands police would have time to approve my firearms transit if I do have to take this route. Bought a new rifle to take this year for my first DG hunt.
My flight still shows confirmed as well. Scheduled to leave 4/30. I emailed my travel agent last night and she is expecting the cancellations for April and May. She’s waiting on Delta to send the updates.
My PH sent me a message back that his other clients were getting refunds and jumping over...
What do you guys think will happen as the new administration in US starts while the new covid strains still under review. Will flights to SA from US be paused today, tomorrow or “wait and see”?
My flight is booked for 4/30 (for now).
Cody, I’m scheduled to leave for JNB fist of May. My doctor suggested using passport health for the covid test (and any immunizations). Looks like y’all have them in TX as well. I’ve talked with other people that have used them recently and the results where back fast.
Since I’m departing a...
Looks like it was a great hunt! Congrats!!
I’ve got plane tix to fly to SA first of May.
Would you share what airline you flew and routes? Just curious how cautious international travel is.
thanks for the post!!
Browning A Bolt in 300WM. Tried different factory and reloads. Even swapped scopes but it Would not group under 2.5” @ 100. Traded it in for a Styer pro hunter. Best upgrade for the $ I could have asked for.
Ultimately it got the job done and I hear a lot of hunters take eland with that caliber and bullet.
I had to take two follow up shots on the animal at close range and this particular eland didn’t even flinch on those shots ( 1 heart and one lung). Still walked a ways before he bled out. The...
I thought I'd share my first experience hunting in Africa with you all. I read a lot of hunters stories on here before my first African hunt and found them very beneficial so I wanted to do a report incase it helps anyone else.
Like most hunters, going on a hunt in Africa is a...
