Great hunt and even greater animals. Thanks for the report.
When I seen you hunted with Rudolf I expected you got nothing less then superb. I hunted with Rudolph in 2008 and had a superb hunt.

Thanks for the nice comments.
Regarding the long drive, we had the option of flying to Kimberly, but it still would have been a 4 hour drive from there - so it probably would have only saved us an hour or two after all the airport bs. I had read during my research that transferring firearms on flights within SA was more arduous than just picking them up in JNB, so we elected to take the drive. It wasn't terrible, and we got to see parts of SA that we wouldn't have otherwise. Much of the landscape during the trip looked remarkably like Nebraska or Oklahoma to me.

Dory, the rifle is a Blaser R8 with a professional success stock. My first Blaser after lusting after one for many years.

Hi Brian - some wonderful animals there - and old Africa hands reckon the Wildebeest was born sick, but gets better and livelier ever shot it takes ....

What was the nearest town, BTW? I lived in NW for many years and wonder where you guys were.

Thanks

Bren7x64, The nearest town is Bray. The owners property literally butts up to the Molopo riverbed between Botswana and SA.

It is a Blaser r8 professional success in 300 wsm. Since the trip I added a 270 wsm that I hope to take next trip.
I have pro success in leather and my son has proS. Stick with the .300!

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
