Hunting in the Zambezi delta in Mozambique,
Coutada Luabo was one of the toughest hunts I have ever done.
I booked my hunt thru Kwalata Safaris, and hunted on Cabassa safaris consession.
sept 8th 2019 - sept 19th 2019
PH Jaco Straus, Kwalata Safaris
Krieghoff Classic Big Five caliber 470 NE
High temperature, high humidity put the marks on my doublerifle, rust come at once, ordinary gun oil wasn't good enough, it dissapear in short time,
I didn't had any Rangoon oil this is way much better than gun oil, a advice to you guys when you are going to suchs areas, buy a bottle of Rangoon oil.
After I got home my gun got a intense care.
And all the rustspots are gone.
I wonder if I should reblue the barrels on my doubble or just let it be as it is.
After 9 days of hard hunting, wading, loosing my toenail, got ash in my ears, nose mouth, yes everywhere on my dirty body I got my buffalo.
In all of these 9 days of hunting from sunrise to sundown, I got a window of 5 seconds.
It was now or never.
After 2 shot from my 470 NE the buff went down, I didn't see it go down, The PH Jaco Strauss start asking me how I felt, in the same time we hear the death roar from the buff, after a while we go after on the tracks.
After about 40 meters we found him laying but not dead.
I gave him a shot between the shoulderblades and one in the shoulder, the buff past away.
I found 2 bullets.
A 500 grs A-Frame fylly expanded and the bullet weight was 487 grs, the solid a 500 grs Barnes solid went thru the buff from rear to the skinside in the troath, this bullet just plowed the way thru, cut all the venes on the tpp of the hart.
The Barnes Solid didn`t loose any weight at all, I can useit again..
All in all this hunt was really tough, and my advice to you guys practice a lot, get fitted, be prepared of putting your soul into it.
Now, I know what I'm going to, I would go again.. thanks.
