Wow that warthog is huge! Love the sitatunga too. Can someone tell me what the differences are between Nile and Cape buffalo? They look very similar to me.

S. c. aequinoctialis (Nile buffalo) is confined to the savannas of Central Africa. It is similar to the Cape buffalo, but somewhat smaller, and its color is lighter. This subspecies is sometimes included in the Sudanese buffalo ... from Wikipedia!

East Africa impala have always been impressive to me too. I don't why it is but those impala and warthogs just get HUGE.

You are right Sr, that was the disease He contracted in his last Safari in Zambia and unfortunately could not get ahead.......We have lost a great international hunter.

Thank for your comment Sr....!!!

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.
