Mpumalanga farmer in critical condition after buffalo attack

A farmer was airlifted to a specialist hospital in Johannesburg after he was attacked by a buffalo on a farm in Wakkerstroom, Mpumalanga on Saturday.

Other farmers rushed the man to a doctor’s room where he was stabilised by paramedics, Watco Emergency Service spokesperson Jan-Henk van Vuuren said.

"The exact cause and events leading to the attack will still be investigated but according to a witness the farmer attempted to tranquilize the buffalo before the attack."

If he wasn't trying to tranquilize him with at least 300 grains of copper-jacketed lead, well, that was his first mistake.

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.
