Hi, I'm Pete, a recreational deer stalker from the UK.

I have hunted RSA Eastern Cape in 2015 with Settlers Safari on a PG cull package. With upgrades and the base package I had a really mixed bag from culling blesbuck in a field to fair chase bushbuck. The bushbuck being one of my favourite hunts ever. During this hunting trip I shot impala, kudu, warthog, blesbuck, springbuck, bushbuck and waterbuck. No really high quality trophies but some high quality hunting.

I thought with this mixed bag of hunting I had "done Africa", not so, the AH massif know better. A couple of shooting buddies and I are in the process of booking a PG hunt in Botswana for next year. I hope this isn't an addiction?

Thank you for the advice I have already taken from this forum, I hope I can give a little back in the future.

Hi Pete, definitely an addiction mate as I sit here planning my 4 th Africa trip . Namibia is the place for me but have had 2 good hunts in S.A.
Africa is still the best value for money hunting in the world.

Welcome aboard Pete. A potential addiction you ask?? Nope, you are already addicted.

Thank you all for your welcomes. Botswana is booked, just the small matter of getting there to sort out!
Cheers.

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.
