Update on pics of latest hunts

Elephants seem to prefer our roads over their own. It's great to have the around and protect their habitat.

Zebra taken on the 'little serengeti'. This past of our wilderness area in TZ has thousands of zebra and a few lions mixed in of course.

4th of July celebration in our camp this year. Tanzania and America have always had close ties and my staff surprised us this year with a great meal...they called it a BBQ!

As the senior member of the crew Mr. VanRooy did the honors to cut up the roast duiker that his son shot a day earlier.

This hard boss buffalo bull took a lot of persuasion to get into the truck. It was around at the end of the day and still on his feet at dark so we had to back out. The boys found him the next day bedded in the long grass. Low visibility, close quarters and a lot of lead ended the pursuit. You may remember PH Thabit that I introduced at the beginning of our season? He was with me on this buffalo follow up and operated like a seasoned professional.

Why not add a little down time at the beach after a great safari? Zanzibar is only an hour or so away from our office on a private charter. Its a great add on and easy to do.

The food is good, the beer is cold and the water is blue!

Poaching comes in many forms...often disguised as legal activities.

Here we have timber being stolen on the fringes of the Game Reserve. These guys have a single permit to harvest 30 square meters of standing timber in a multi use area outside of a Game Reserve.

What they have done WRONG is to bring in a chain saw illegally, then break the law by cutting too close to the Game Reserve, then cut nearly 4x the amount allowcated for their permit...how long would this operation have continued if we didn't track them down?

We caught them, and removed them, and we will continue to do so as long as hunters continue to pay for conservation...
I am still waiting on the check from PETA to help me save the trees and the animals in the 6,000 sq km of wilderness habitat we protect.

Experience is everything...
This is an East African Greater Kudu. They don't live in a fence and they have not been handled by man.
We wounded this animal with a shot that was too far back at 8:30 am this morning. We killed him 6 hours later thanks to experience.
The first shot hit the kudu with no reaction, shots 2 and 3 were clear misses. Many would have chalked it up as a miss right then; we saw the kudu walk, trot, stop. He looked around, walk, stop again then slowly trot over the horizon about 700 yards away. Apparently in perfect working order, but we went to the last spot the animal stood; only a few meters from shot #3. The hard black burned soil with one new blade of bright green grass showed three small drops of watery bright red blood.
Gut shot. Go slow. Give it time.
My client would not be walking up on a dead animal, more work would and bullets will be required.
After an two hours we came to a cross road. I sent the two trackers in different directions.
He did not cross... Back to search in the direction we came from.
We circled wide and systematically worked through an area of likely bedding for the wounded kudu...nothing.
A fire was burning through the long grass way to the North.
One of my trackers saw birds coming down from about a mile away... far enough a Normal person would need binoculars.
We turned the truck north. The fire was out but the kudu had been exposed. He was unaware as we worked in for a finishing shot. It ended right there.
Experience is everything.

We have many small antelopes in our wilderness Big Game Concessions that add a lot of variety to a dangerous game hunt. These include oribi, duiker, klipspringer, steinbuck and Kirk's dikdik.

We have documented over 40 leopard this season in this one hunting area...if you are looking for the best cat hunting in Africa, you are looking at it! @bulletsafaris

Big game hunting is all about timing and patience. This safari is a prime example.
We had no stress on locating big leopard, I had 4 on bait when our hunter arrived, so that gave us a relaxed start and we had time to track a huge kudu bull. We got him.
As the cats continued to feed on the kudu, and we waited for them to feed on a regular daylight schedule, we had time to drive to a place where the huge eland hang out. We got him.
Then we moved on to the biggest tom leopard, he came in unlressured early in the morning. We got him.
Then we sorted through about 100 oribi to find the largest one in the planet...we got him.
Then we decided to track buffalo, we opted for the tougher way to go and pursued one old dagga boy at a small spring deep inside the area. Why not...we had time on our hands and we thought he may still be there.
We got him too!

Silence in The Selous

It was silent and the sun was setting. The truck was quiet as my crew was exhausted. We had been out all day and we had tracked buffalo without getting a shot. The Selous didnt disappoint, proviing us an excellent #safari day. We saw many species from #hippo to #elephant . But the buffalo just wouldnt cooperate.

Driving along the river about 1 kilometer from camp I saw a flash of jet black hair in the bush below us. It was a cow #buffalo , she was trying to cross the trail back to the thicket. She had been the first to finish drinking in the crocodile infested water below. I readied the doc sitting next to me. He prepared to climb off the car, I loaded his #gun and then grabbed my doublerifle. My tracker knew the drill and my driver was focused on me in the side view mirror waiting for the signal to stop. I gave it, he did, we jumped.

The toyota rumbled off as my tracker appeared beside me chirping at my driver on the radio "200, 200, copy"... meaning drive 200 meters, switch off and remain quiet. The buffalo calmed down as the vehicle moved on. We moved back down the two track and circled the buffalo. There was no wind and darkness was fast approaching.

The 15 or so buffalo had grouped together as they often do when confused. They were looking towards the vehicle. As the sound of the engine left them, we had flanked them; the Doc and I were looking for a bull.

The bull had a white face and was broadside. He was old and big. My hunter was on the sticks and looking. He knew his target and I asked him to shoot. There was a delay. I repeated myself adding the word NOW.

The bullet hit home and the buffalo ran straight at us. It was closing the distance but so were the other animals behind him and we didnt need multiple blood trails. Almost instantly the herd dissapeared through a washed out ravine. I ran after them and saw the bull at the back of the group. I fired a shot on the move and missed.

Irritated at my shooting I ran into the bush after him. I lost the track then my crew. I called for a flashlight. We found blood and luckily I found reality soon after. It was too dark, we backed out. The next morning would prove even more exciting.

Daylight found us at the same spot. The sun was up but the bushes seemed even thicker then they did at dusk the day before. We slowly moved on the trail of the bull. The trackers did an excellent job as usual and led us into the thickest of the thick bushes where the buffalo had bedded down and spent the night.

I smeared the still wet blood between my finger and thumb showing the evidence that it wouldn't be long... and this was going to require more ammunition.

At this time we crawled forward on hands and knees. Our attention was focused in front when the game scout at the end of our line saw the buffalo. The animal had circled. 4 out of 5 of us had crawled past him no more than 30 feet. I rolled back on my hips as the game scout pointed and inched behind the hunter. I saw it was bedded. It was way too close, impossible to see, and very much alive. There was no chance to do or say anything.

It had to have heard us approach and I'm convinced that we were spared a charge due to the fact he circled and bedded down a second time looking back the way he came. In the dark he didnt complete the circle, he did more of a fish hook. Leaving a gap for us to crawl right next to him and past his current location. He just didnt sense us due to the dense cover and the wind in our favor. All of this dictated mostly by luck and a .375 bullet in his body (those make it hard to get out of bed in the morning).

I unloaded both barrels into the middle of the blackness. Gunpowder , dust and buffalo was instantly everywhere.

The animal took 1000 grains of bullet then stood up... moving to our left where I hit him again. At this time Doc saw the movement and made out the creature, he cycled 2 shells into him (he finally had a decent angle on him as I had moved a little when reloading).

We scrambled forward as best we could. The buffalo had finally fallen. Doc finished him off at point blank range.

All had the look of 'what the hell just happened' on our faces. This look is known best by the handful of hunters that have experienced real Africa close up and personal. It's a surreal moment that cant be enhanced by words.
Everything was silent again.
