I have been a lurker on this site for many years and finally decided to join. I have hunted southern africa (RSA, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique) with my wife many times. Our next safari is scheduled for August 2020. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I grew up on a ranch in South Texas (Frio county) and still hunt birds and whitetails and pigs there. We have hunted in southern Africa for over 15 years and hopefully will be going on our 14th safari in August. Have taken most of the plains game (including an over 60 inch greater kudu). I need a lion and an elephant to complete the big 5 (my lion hunt is scheduled in August). Working on the tiny 10 (need a red duiker, suni, and Damaraland dik-dik). I have a congenital disease-my father loved old model 70s and he passed that affliction to me. I use my fathers 30-06 and have added a pre-64 .375 H&H for Africa.

Welcome to AH koodoo62. My better half is from Abilene. I'd love to see a photo of your Kudu. BTW your father passed on a very helpful congenital disease. I wasn't quite that lucky.

Here you go. May 2017. On the Rance ranch on the Kei river in the Eastern Cape. Rocky country, lots of big kudu, good buff. Great folks. My outfitter was John X, PH was Ed Wilson. All great people.

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.
