Very well written report, with the good and the bad in it. Loved the pics!

The warhog and hartbeest looked awesome!! I concur that the zebra are one tough animal. I shot Mine through the Chevron, and out the Chevron with my 375, and It still ran a long ways.

What did you think about the thorns? I am so glad you took so many good trophies!

Well done!

Good write up, thank you for sharing. Fair play for talking about the bad times as well as the good.
I know exactly how that feels as does every other hunter but you had fun, took some great animals and if you can look back with a smile then that's all you need.
I might have missed it but who was the outfitter?

@Northwest9
We hunted with Harald in September 2019 and had a ball. My son got a good collection of animalsalong with myself. My wife thought it was a brilliant trip and got on well with Haralds in-laws and wife Liezel. Monica is a beautiful cheery person and always greeted you with a smile. He cooking is devine.
Attached is a photo of the person we hunted with. His name was Marcius hopefully it was the same young man. For his age he was very good.

Marcius is on the left of Harald with another PH Jacobus Wasserfall. Harald is holding his daughter.
Due to the China flu Marcius is working in the transport industry with his after in Windhoek.
Franz and Andreus have both successfully completed their PH exams and still work for Harald as far as I know. David is a brilliant tracker and still at the squatters camp and married now.
I would highly recommend hunting with Harald and Liezel at Osambahe Nord safaris.

The Oryx I got from a blind with Franz and Andreus. Blind hunting is harder than people think. Just sitting and waiting may not be physically taxing but it is mentally taxing waiting for hours on end for the right animal.
I'm glad you enjoyed your trip with Harald but next time take the wife as she will fall in love with the place like mine did.
As you caught the bus from Sydney where are you from.
A great story and a good read mate.

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.
