Day 3, we were able to stalk a an Impala that were located in dry marsh area. We watched 3 Impala for 15 or 20 minutes before we were able to close the deal.

The rest of that day through day 4 was a struggle to take a Blesbok. I passed on a shot on day 3 that I was lamenting on Day 4.

Day 5, we were able to take a male Zebra after many stalks. The photos of my Zebra does not truly capture their beauty as in the moment. Similar in my mind to when I shot my first wood duck.

Days 6 and 7, we hunted for a bushbuck without success.

On Day 8 we changed our plan and went Gemsbok hunting. We were able catch them in open field while concealed in the bush.

I am from TEXAS but live in Nebraska!
I have been lurking for a year or so ago.
I am a lifelong wingshooter and lover of gun dogs that is fortunate to occasionally catch a trout on a fly rod.
My friends convinced me to journey to South Africa in 2017 and it was a wonderful trip!
This website was helpful in planning and influences me to wish for a return trip!

The Zebra is a beautiful animal that is very challenging!

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.
