    Following my first hunt in Mozambique with my son, I published an article in African Hunting Gazette describing us taking a pair of bulls with Mashambanzou Safaris in Coutada 14 in the Zambezi Delta. Recently, the journal finished cataloguing the back issues on line. It was a fabulous experience (good enough that I repeated it this past October). I thought perhaps some of you would enjoy reading the story of the original hunt for a pair of swamp buffalo.

    Looking for birds Tuna fishing seems so much simpler.

    I think a bow hunt in that grass might be interesting.

    Thanks for sharing the tale.

    General, very nicely written. I think the Colonel should take some writing lessons from you.

    Excellent story and a great father/son adventure that must still bring you both enjoyment, every time you re-live it.

    Great story! Thank you for sharing. I'm sure stalking black death in the high grass of a swamp is a rush all its own. Congrats on the great trophies!

    Good writing! I felt like I was there with you. Being that close to hundreds of Buffalo would be amazing.
    I am going on my first buffalo hunt buffalo in two years time. Although, it will be in the Caprivi strip, reading your experience has really raised my anticipation. Thanks for sharing.

    Took my first buffalo in the Caprivi. Incredible place to hunt. I am confident you will not be disappointed. The bull in my avatar came from there. We also spent a lot of time dodging elephant - amazing total experience.
