We are all qued up in Seattle!!

Headed to Houston today and then down to Buenos Aires tomorrow.

I am looking forward to hunting Axis and Blackbuck with @MG Hunting for a couple of days, while the ladies do tourist stuff in Buenos Aires.

Then headed to Peru and Mochu Pichou for a couple days

I am going to try and do a “report as we go” but we will see how that works.

Best of luck!
 
Sounds like a fun trip. Have a blast.
 
Tell Manuel and Pedro hello from me... or just go have fun. Jealous.
 
We are in the air to IAH. Time for a little of the back story….

This started out as waterfowl hunt with a co worker. We had planned on 4 days of bird hunting, staying at MG’s lodge and the ladies doing site seeing activities while we are hunting…
The best laid plans, deposit paid, flights booked, and then my co worker backed out…And we need two guns minimum for bird hunting…
I tried to find someone last minute to fill his spot without any luck….
I contacted Manuel and told him that I still want go hunting, and asked what my options are…..
We went back and forth a bit and finally settled on a two day hunt for Axis and Blackbuck.
We will be staying at a BnB in Buenos Aries and the PH will pick me up each morning and we will go from there. The ladies have arranged local tours and activities while I am hunting.
And the ladies decided, since we are going to be in that part of the southern continent that we should also go to Peru and tour Mochu Pichou for a couple of days….. Happy Wife (& friend) Happy Life….

This is our first time to Argentina and the South American Continent so really looking forward too this adventure!
 
You will have a great trip. Shoot straight.
 
BUENOS AIRES IS A FUN TOWN, DON'T DISCOUNT A GUY HAVIN A GOOD TIME DOING THE "TOURIST" THING. GOOD STEAKS ARE FOR "FREE" AND THE WINE IS GREAT. TAKE IN A SALSA SHOW.

Going to spend the day in the Houston Museum District before we fly to Argentina this evening
 
Enjoy!
 
We spent the day at the Houston Natural History Museum. Super cool exhibits and a great way to kill a few hours…

Plane delayed…. They have closed the ramp at the airport because of lighting…
 
On the plane now….. we were delayed approximately 2 hrs…. Not a big deal

We made it all good!! Manuel picked us up and delivered us to our BnB. We spent the rest of the day enjoying the sites, exchanged some money and a little shopping.
Ready for some sleep. Up early hunting with Manuel’s brother tomorrow am early….

@ROCKET and Augustine (Manuel’s brother) picked me up this morning at 06:30 and we headed 2 hrs out of Buenos Aries. All open cattle farms, alfalfa fields with amazing numbers of blackbuck and axis. I be believe we saw one herd of blackbuck of 1000 animals.
Augustine made us an amazing lunch on the braii!!!!
And I was back to our BnB by 6:00pm…

About Lon's Elephant hunts w/Tokoloshe? I hear Lon is battling cancer? What is his long term prognosis? I am already booked to hunt Africa in 2024 2025. Might consider 2026 for another African hunt. I want to hunt a more wild open region devoid of civilization. Concern is the risk that I book f/2026 then find poor Lon has passed on? Does Lon have any assistance to carry on the business in his absence?

Is your 22HP still available? If so have the original case?

Hi Ian, I'm contemplating my first outing, leaving UK via Dubai to Africa, taking rifles as you did.

I presume it went okay for you, would you have done anything differently? Cheers, Richard East Sussex
