Matt_wy Looks like you had a great hunt, The guy's at Khomas have delivered again. The problem with reading these hunt reports is I get a sudden need to visit again, especially when there is eland running about in the highlands.

Sounds like you had a great trip. Some beautiful trophies and a great experience. I will make one comment on the Bergers. Before you give up on the Mesa try the Berger 215's. I have a friend in MT that manages a ranch where they cull some elk every year. A couple of years ago he helped take around 76 elk. He really favors the 215. I'm using the 180 in my 7mm and doing very well with it. Marginal hit on a Blesbuck today and took her down in her tracks. Congrats!

Great report and loved the picture of you holding the Birds and the butt of a dog or something over your right shoulder


I’ll be there with Philip in March. I’ll try and take out a baboon in your honor ;)

Thank you Matt for sharing your hunting adventure with our AH community! Keep in touch and hope to welcome you back one day to chase Eland in the Kalahari.
best regards the Khomas Highland team

Will do. Already trying to figure out what 2021 looks like. Have a great time in Kamchatka! I want a hunt report from that one!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
