    I live in Texas, love to hunt and fish( and golf, that is a different forum), heading to South Africa in less than a month( mid May) for a plains game hunt, Kruger safari, Victoria Falls and Capetown after. Will be using guns at camp. Too much travel to take mine this time.
    280 rem, 300 win mag, 270 wsm, 243,6mm, 7mm-08, 17 hmr, 22lr, 12/20 gauge.
    Kudu, bushbuck, waterbuck, zebra , wildebeest, impala , warthog, red hartebeest, are all on our list.
    20 year old son and I will be on our first hunt in South Africa.
    Great website with tons of info and knowledge.

    Av8or, I haven't seen any references to shooting off sticks. If you have been spending time at the range with them great. If not you still have a couple of weeks to do so. You and your son will be expected to use them in Africa. Do you own the rifles mentioned in your introduction? What rifles do they have "in camp?"

    We have practiced off of sticks and will do more until we leave. Yes I do own . 7x57, 7x64; 30-06 and 375 H&h , that I know of for sure. I have met my ph/ etc. I don’t think they advertise on this sight .
