    I don't think anyone is really reading the comment section on a 2 year old article... but here are some picture of some of the my mounts from the trip! Thanks again Mokore Safaris (Gary and Doug)!

    On a couple of occasions ive shot red stags with gunshot wounds that had healed. Most animals that receive superficial hits will go on to live. I don't think that takes anything away from a buff though! Hes a beauty mate

    What an amazing trip it looks like you had. The trophies look great that is an awesome pig. The buff is nothing to be ashamed of either. I am not so patiently waiting for my trophies to arrive from my hunt last year.

    Fantastic mounts. I really enjoyed the article. The level of “Africa Hunting” addiction is high. It is 6:00 on a Saturday morning and I am reading your post! I am always looking for an article or report I missed! Thanks for feeding my “addiction”.

    Good to read your narrative again and see the final products. That buffalo is beautiful and you may never better him. But that Clemson rag - er flag ………. :Facepalm:

    Grand hunt and trophies!
    I boned out a 5x5 elk a buddy shot and lost most of a front leg and shoulder due to a lot of calcified area around what appeared to be a 243 caliber bullet. Didn’t seem to affect him.
