hi y'all
when i signed up last December I said I was headed to Cameroon in February for LDE and Savannah buff. several asked for a report and I said I would but i aint very computer savvy and never got it done. here's a shot at it.

i aint much of traveler and traveling to Cameroon during Covid just plain sucks.
after a mean trip in the hunting was great. food was great and we killed some really awesome game. we were with Club Faune about 6-7 hours north of Garoua on the rey river. next door to their national game park.
in the 12 days of hunting i killed a 50 inch LDE ,a big red Buff , sing sing waterbuck, kob, oribi, grey duiker, red flanked duiker, a hartebeest and a korrigum.
trip home was even more brutal than getting there due to delays and such. It was an extremely remote hunt but accommodations were what i would consider exceptional for where we were. me and one buddy went and took our wives. it was safe and friendly we never knew what they was saying in french but all the locals in town and in the bush were very friendly. i'll try to send pics after this post

Thank you for posting, you sure did condense that bugger lol !

Still great to read about you success & would love to see pics of you animals, more so that Eland Bull & Red Bull.

A dream of mine, but way out of my price league & only way is if I worked for some one (no French) or did a self guided hunt & no way would you find a 45-50in in a open area & my contact over there has passed away now, both actually as had a Kiwi guy in the know to .

Surprised you took you Wives in these troubled times as a few Bad guys floating around up that way !

the korrigum was really cool I don't know if it was true or they was blowing smoke up our butts they told us there was only about 8-9 permits for Korrigum in all of Africa last year and we killed 2 seemed like good ones?

it was the trip of a lifetime for sure. I enjoy seeing everyone else's stuff on here and enjoy reading all the hunting talk. I'll sure respond and answer any questions i can. may take me a day or two since I got to work some cows for a few days.

I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Tam Dl wrote on xausa's profile.
Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.
