Well this has been along time coming and I finally pulled the trigger to go hunt Namibia. I have been thinking of going there since I started hunting Africa. I had been talking with the same outfitter for 6 years and he always answered all my question and stayed with my plan even after years of pushing the trip off. I knew I picked the right place after that fact. I hunted with Pieter delport and it was the right choice in so many ways. I had Travel express do my airfare and they did another great job. Guns check through from jfk right to Namibia with no problems. I was picked up by Claude and taking right to the lodge and in camp by 1 that afternoon. Claude would be My Ph for the first few days as Pieter was finishing up a hunt with other clients. Goal was to look for big oryx, springbuck , mtn zebra and eland. I would say goals came through plus some more. I hunted a few areas and the best areas he had depending on what I was after. We started off on the home ranch looking for oryx the next day. We saw kudu,warthog, red harbeest and plenty of oryx to pick from. After a few stalks and time on the sticks we packed it in for the morning to grab some lunch. We hit the field again by 2 and the search was back on. After we rounded a corner we spotted a few oryx walking along an open area and we started the stalked. After getting to with in 200 yds I decide I wanted to try my reloads out of the 257. We knew it was not as big an oryx as I was wanting but a very good one. At the prices for oryx I decide I would just take 2 if I saw a better one later. Well I get on the sticks they are 200 yds away and she faces us and just turns enough I knew I could slide a bullet in the sweet spot. I squeeze a round off and down she goes and never moved at all. That 257 amazes me each time with how deadly it can be with that little 100 grain barnes ttsx. She came in at just under 37" so a very good oryx for sure and a great hunt to.
