    I really enjoyed this report but I'll bet the 2019 Africa hunt report with your new hunting partner will be even better. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    I'm sure it'll be a blast! It'll be a little unconventional first hunt because my main target will be Bushpig and warthog. Every thing after that is just a bonus

    You could always bring it along to Wyoming and shoot an antelope with it.

    I have been thinking about that. I've never really stretched its legs outside 100yds but what an awesome experience it would to take an antelope or deer out there with it. My grandfather was a mason and only ever hunted around his home as a food source for his family. Had a good collection but never had chance to hunt outside CT.

    You've got me thinking hard now. I need to look into reloads for the 300savage. It does decent with core Lokt but not amazing at 100yds

    Don't work up too much of a sweat over it, we shot 2 nice antelopes this year under 100 yards. It does happen.

    Don't see edit option for my original post. Here a couple short videos. They lose some quality when uploaded but can still tell whats going on.

    I've got a great video of my wife walking up to her zebra- which she had wanted/worried about for a year before delivering a perfect shot at 153 yards. She "petted" it just as Marrah did!

    She sounds very similar. Marrah wasn't going to take the shot because she wasn't confident then finally settled in. Happy to see her show restraint and then respect to her first kill but petting and thanking the stag. Was a good day.

    I'm sure you and I felt the same satisfaction knowing that we had chosen correctly who to share life's adventures with.

    @dailordasailor Splendid report glad to know you and Marrah had a good time. I need to get out with Kerrie and Co to get some hunting in soon I'm getting an itchy trigger finger. Keep in touch.

    Was a pleasure to guide you and Marrah mate, well mostly Marrah ha ha.
    I love lucky hunters, they make me look good.
    Seriously though, had a great time hunting with you.
