This Roosevelt bull is aging now... butchering will occur in about 10 days. The last bull I shot of this size was a bit dry (no fat after the rut) and tough. Im hanging an extra few days in a walk-in cooler to see if that will help.
I need to write up this report... it's only been 14 months or more... when was it due?
Here is a photo of the team looking into a small canyon at what would later become my sheep. I'm posting it to show the topography of where this hunt takes place. Note the Adriatic in the background.
There was a place outside of Bucharest, I'm sorry I cannot recall the name, that was a multi-acre outdoor facility that held actual Romania homes and buildings from many locations about the country and from hundreds of years ago. It was a walking, self-guided tour with most of the signage in...
I enjoyed your report. Previously I had asked my Romania contact for info on a Fallow hunt but still haven't heard back. HUNTROMANIA may get my business.
There is plenty to do, even around Bucharest. I'm sorry you didn't get that opportunity.
Romania is beautiful.
People went weird during the pandemic. I lost track of prices 6 or 8 months ago but a friend tells me prices are dropping quickly for
used rifles. I checked on gunbroker and it does look like the market has softened.
I hunted for bulls on this reserve last July with Bayly Sippel and can recommend outfit. It is a physically more demanding hunt, up and down hills, crawling through the brush, and what not... so be prepared.
I've hunted this hunt and found it to be a very good hunt and I'm working on the report. Another member and his son also hunted it and have completed their report. They took 2 bulls. Unfortunately I shot and lost mine. The group made a helluva effort at tracking and recovery. In the end, the...
I was there just before you. Blouberg was quite nice. Bayly Sippel did a fantastic job.
I still need to write my report. Unfortunately I came home sick and once better, dived back into work and life. I'll get it done, hopefully soon.
Thanks again Kevin.
As a side note, since we had multiple stops, we hired a private driver through a tour company. I enjoyed his input, as well as the input from Diedre at Africa Sky and we added in our own little stops along the way. In all, I think this poor man had to endure us for 8 hours!
We are just outside Joberg now. Yesterday we followed Kevin's advice and hit the Safari store where I bought a new hat. Then Melville and Moon, Amatulis, then the Cuban Restaurant. All were very good suggestions. Thanks much!
We added to the list this morning with a hot air balloon flight. In...
Darn you.... I'm leaving for Africa very soon. If these are available when I return we shall have a deal.
Until then fellers.... feel free to scoop them up because my bullet shelf is near full... ok it's overfull.
I am hesitant to post regarding the issue in Florida as I would rather read and learn about the international politics and discussions as well as the present decisions by SCOTUS. However; the first training I received in Active Shooter training was to arrive on scene, relay information to...
This actually happened here about 8 years ago. Kids at a bus stop waiting for their ride when a large dog trotted up with a bone in its mouth complete with tennis shoe at the end. It was Tweaker Tonia, she'd been missing for a few months... missing no more. Ahhh the stuff that never made the...
For the price of that gun, it is a no brainer, buy it. You are correct in that TSS shot has changed the game on 410 bores. While tss is very expensive, it has changed the game on what a 410 can do. In the last week, I have just bought another 410.
For fun, look up reloading the 410 with hand...
