Well, I have been back for about a month from Zimbabwe and ready to head back.

I just finished nailing down dates with CMS and @spike.t . I will be in Zimbabwe, specifically, Nyakasanga for buffalo and tuskless elephant August 1 - 14, 2022. Then I head out to Lusaka, Zambia on the 16th to hunt Sable and Lechwe August 18 - 24th and head home on the 26th.

My girlfriend and I will be in Zimbabwe on July 22nd doing a Victoria Falls etc. trip (itinerary still being developed), and then she heads home on the 30th and I take a charter out to start the hunt the following day on the 31st.

I have international trips scheduled in October (3 weeks to go), March and May so far so July will be here before I know it.

Hi Tanks,

Nyakasanga no finer place, no nastier elephant than Nyakasanga tuskless. Almost makes me miss Tetsi Flies!

Sounds amazing...Will the two Heym(s) in 9.3x74R and 500NE be making a return trip?
May I recommend including the (step-count) in your future hunting report, as you did in your most recent one...This added a whole new perspective...

.500 NE definitely for buffalo and tuskless. The PG rifle will be a toss up between the 9.3x74R (286 grain SP), .300 RUM (200 grain Accubond) and .458 B&M (258 grain tipped CEB raptor). Whichever one I am more comfortable with up to 250 yards in regards to accuracy.

I also have a deposit down on a zebra (in order to reserve it) with CMS, so the PG rifle will also be used in Zim.

I have a feeling all 3 of them will fulfil the accuracy department with the edge going to .300 RUM, so it will most likely be a coin toss.

As long as I have my phone, I will keep track of steps.

I look forward to reading the next adventure. You might have to add some posts to this thread about what shooting practice you are doing, and then later inform us what worked best, etc. I enjoy reading about the preparation involved in any grand adventure.

That was one of the options presented as it is not that far from Victoria falls. However, I have a feeling that we will not be done with Covid by July 2022 and I did not want to deal with multiple country travel back and forth with Covid tests at each step.

I just finished my hunt in Dande East. My PH was telling me what an amazing area Nyakasanga is to hunt. Will you plan to add a chobe bushbuck to your list in Zambia too?

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
