Hello Marius,

Thx for supporting this Open Thread & a brief message for new or returning Hunters to Africa - lean on your PH experiences & trust the messaging. I feel it’s an underutilized valuable resource as ‘boots on the ground’ can change often & year-to-year.

Q: if you had to select one month to hunt S Africa it would be ____ & why?

Q: strictly for ‘fun’ & open opinion - #1 mistake Hunters make w/ taxidermy?

Thx,
Corey

Hi Corey,
Thank you for the message. On the the first question, I would say its a lot more complex than a simply naming a single month. First of all, it depends what you will be hunting, and which area. In the Eastern Cape, mid May is excellent, for the simple fact that most of the animals are rutting. Then, mid July is very good, because of the cold in the Eastern Cape, means that the animals are sunning themselves every morning. (If they are sunning themselves, we can see them with the mountainous terrain that we deal with.) If you are hunting Buffalo in the Limpopo, personally I prefer the hot weather, as I find it easier to walk onto them once they find a spot to lie down out of the heat.
Question 2, I would probably say getting swept up in the nostalgia of the first safari and wanting to take all of the back skins home. Unless you have a specific plan for the leather like turning it into a specific product, most of the back skins end up being a waste. Funds that you could have allocated to your next trip.

Hi Marius,

Thx for the quality insight - agreed, May into early June pretty special time to be in the Bush & front row seat @ a waterhole for Impala Rut Show is very entertaining!

Backskins: agreed, I have one = Hartmann.

Congrat’s on all the hard work & success w/ your May clients & enjoyable KMG hunting reports posted here! P.S. I’m hoping to avoid the crabby Joburg customs agent reading PCR Test dates - yikes! I’m guessing 0400 Int. arrival may have had something to do with that reaction ...

See your team 29 August ...

Ciao,
Corey

I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.
