I am very happy that we don't have any mambas in the Eastern Cape. In 15 years hunting, I encountered the first snake last year. Beautiful Puff adder specimen. I would have had him mounted if he did not have so many holes in him.
I'm seriously contemplating having my tracker carry my shotgun on hunts for the snakes.

Marius, glad to hear there is few snakes in your area, i certainly got my fill in the DRC, back in the frozen north now and no worries of snakes! As for the tracker/shotgun combo, i think it is a great idea, especially during my trip! lol!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
