NAMIBIA: Buffalo Hunt In The Caprivi

@Fatback , am totally impressed with your trophies. Also nice to hear that the operator and PH were first rate. Buffalo is the last thing on my bucket list. Love to see more pics of the camp on the river..........congrats.................FWB
Didn’t really take any pictures of the camp. Here are a few of some of the animals/scenery I took while hunting.
Congratulations on a great hunt.
What are the details on rifles and loads?
Thanks. I didn’t bring my own rifle on this trip. I was worried about all the stories I had been hearing about lost/damaged rifle with the airlines recently. I rented rifles from the PH. A 375 for the buffalo, shooting a 300 grain Barnes TSX and a 300 win for the plains game, shooting a 180 grain nosler partion. Both preformed well.
Great animals and beautiful area.
That bushbuck is once in a lifetime! Outstanding
Here is a small group of bulls that we saw on the Botswana side of the river as we were taking my bull out. Certainly gave me some inspiration to make it back to the Caprivi to hunt again in the future. I’m by no means an expert but to my untrained eye, these all look like tremendous bulls to me. I’d like to hear thoughts from the more experienced buffalo hunters on the forum. Also, thanks for all of the kind comments. I am new to this forum and the welcome by everybody is greatly appreciated.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
