    I have hunted with Legelela and specifically Garth and I can tell you that you will have a great hunt with him. Very good hunting on all of there South African concessions and very good hospitality. I hope you have a good time!!

    Thank you so much for your info
    On Hunting Affair I was discussing with 5-6 outfitters but the discussion with him was shortly, strict on point and all his answers on subject.
    Some small scratchiz on his hands(so a man of action) so I like him immediately
    And we have a dale.
    Thank you for your post
    All the best

    Adrian, you have some fantastic trophies. I'm jealous. We do not have free roaming Red Stag in the U.S. the closest thing to them that we have is Elk. Unfortunately they are found about 2,000 miles from where I live and cost more to hunt than going on a PG hunt in Africa.

    I don't recall you mentioning if you reload or not. There is a current thread on AH regarding loading information for the
    8 x 68 caliber you are planning to use in Africa.

    Did you take those bear with your 8 x 68? They look HUGE. How much did they weigh?

    I'm using the 8x68 for 7 hunting season with hundreds of pcs hunted with weights start from 35 kgs to 400 kgs!!
    What I understand that the animals from Africa are strong/taf on shooting impacts
    I have two friends which there are hunting in Africa from almost 7 years and they are using my caliber with norma swift a frame 13 grams with best results and with any problem on buffalo, lion,hippo,crocs
    So for shore will not be a problem for plain games on my Safaris
    Thank you

    I think that the "Generalization" that African animals are tuff is way over played. The bigger culprit is poor shot placement and or improper bullet construction. I used a .358 caliber bullet weighing 225 Gr. at 2800 fps. for all of the larger animals I took. All of them were down in under 50 yards. The Impala sized animals I took with the 6.5 x 55 never took a step. The animals that my sons took also dropped where they stood except for the ones where they made a poor shot.
