Good day AH community!

This is just a post to find out how many of you have been lucky enough to take the "Ghost of Darkness" aka the African Bushpig in daylight with a bow? This must surely be one of the pinnacles of the archery world in Africa! Albeit mostly a huge case of very good luck and timing, sometimes it can be planned for. For a case of plain old good luck and absolutely incredible shooting see the first video below. (Hunter is Gene Hobbs and the shot is 45 yards). Although you can visibly hear how excited we all were about the Bushpig and the incredible shot, I remember a case were it was 100% planned by us to shoot a Bushpig in daylight. We were hunting near Polokwane in the Limpopo province at the property of a good friend of ours. That friend had a small holding with some Blesbuck, Nyala, European Wild boar and donkeys on it. As luck would have it the small holding was located next to a small nature reserve. Every day when our friend would feed the European pigs the Bushpig from the neighboring property would come through the fence at night and eat the scraps that were left over. With time the Bushpigs realised that if they were a bit quicker they could beat the European pigs to the feast that awaited. Eventually this pressure to get to the feed first resulted in the Bushpigs feeding in broad daylight. Well to cut a long story short as is the case with most well laid out plans it eventually all came together in a late afternoon sit! See the second video below! (Hunter is Danie Geel) We look forward to seeing all your pics and hearing about your experiences!

Kind regards,
Dempsey Bayly and Michael Sippel

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
