Thanks! Forgot to give info on the hunt: My fourth time with Quagga Safaris and first time on their new 57,000 acre Manketti Reserve near Lephalale in Limpopo Province RSA. I used my 416 Rigby Big Game with Federal's Trophy Bonded Bear Claw 400 gr. ammo and a Leupold VX6 1-6X24 Red Dot scope. Great outfitter and beautiful lodge and amazing food.

Could you please give us some info on how the Bear Claw performed…Where you able to recover the bullet?
Thanks, in advance.
I am a big fan of the TBBC. I also shoot it in my 375 H&H double and in my 300 winmag and it has performed beautifully in Africa on lots of plains game and 3 buffalo. The skinners did retrieve a bullet from the buffalo in the pic above. It's a perfect mushroom.

Hey everyone..rookie mistake here. Packing to leave tomorrow and I have no idea JNB policy for bringing I cigarettes. Yes I know a smoker, plan on taking 4 cartons if able. Any advice please. Will be greeted by Mr X to ease custom’s hassle. Thanks in advance !
Hi,

Glade to hear from you and that you have kept me in mind.

I hope all is well and the hunting has been good.

Everything is fairly good.

The 2 fellows that I had lined up for this great hunt opportunity have backed out.

I'm in the process of purchasing a new house and having knee surgery, or surgeries depending on the left knee MRI, hopefully I can get back to Africa as early as 2024.
I'm concerned about Australia's indigenous species that are being killed by feral cats. Is anyone aware of any hunts I can joining to go to Australia to take a few shots at feral cats.
