Andy.

Welcome aboard and I wish you the best.

I am not so sure that much can be gleaned from my yammering, but some of it's funny.

About the best suggestion I can offer is to just not let anything get up ever. Keep shooting and reloading until ot ain't even quivering anymore.

Welcome aboard Andy. What do you have on the menu? Will you be taking your own rifle(s)? Don't try to shoot everything you see. Why, you might ask? the answer is simple, you need to save something for you second, third and subsequent trips. No, I'm not kidding. I hope you are getting some practice shooting off sticks, you will be expected to use them in Africa. Rest assured that you are in for a treat! Hunting in Africa is like nothing you've ever done before. I'll be looking for your story and photos in a few months.

Thank you for the kind welcome. I will primarily be pursuing kudu and bushbuck, with blesbok, impala, and zebra on the list as well. And I will probably take the advice from here of "taking what Africa offers" if something nice turns up.
I bought some sticks, and started shooting off of them. Not bringing a rifle, as my wife and I are stopping off in Germany and the Czech Republic on the way home, and I want to keep it simple for the first go.
I think part of the attraction of Africa is looking at all of the possibilities - I can already envision several more trips: father/son, father/daughter, father/son/grandfather, archery, handgun, etc. Beest slam, buffalo, etc. Let alone all of the other areas and countries.
Just need to hit that Lotto, or perhaps continue working for a few more years..and I haven't even been there yet...

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.
