    You may need X-country skis or snow shoes to hunt that bushbuck!

    Reminds me of my farming days, when you ask for rain and you get A LOT more than you asked for. You wonder why it couldn't be spread out more?

    Even part's of the drought stricken Eastern Cape received rain, to the detriment of the embattled hungry kudu, cold rain and wind aren't a good mix.

    Well I hope my hunt goes well in 25 days. I have been working so hard this year, I need a good trip.

    Hungry then a cold snap. Not a good combination for the wildlife.
    I hope that a few are hiding in the thick stuff and can find some grass that should be sprouting soon.

    Holy cow that snow! Looks like Montana in the winter. Does anyone know how to drive in snow down there even? Whenever I see pix like these I know someone will blame it on global warming, no matter how silly it is. Mind you I am not saying the earth doesn't warm and cool in cycles, it does now just like it always has. Just the idea that somehow the US is responsible for it bugs me. No one else really cares.

    The people that live up high tend to know how to drive in it.
    Anyone else, waits until it melts.

    They get snow every year, just not so much at once.

    Limpopo has been getting hit too. Jacques just finished up an ego hang hunt there that was very tough. The rain had the ele's scattered as they suddenly had all sorts of water. Fortunately a nice bull was taken on the last day.
