    You had a great hunt, especially scoring a bushpig first off in daytime.
    I wouldn't worry about the political/land situation. There are plenty of venues so far out in the boondocks on farms nobody would want them. Besides that, with the exception of a couple of farms being nationalized, most of it just pre-election noise.

    Edit: Next trip, SMILE for the camera! :LOL:

    Just a little fyi. Many years ago while stationed in Alaska I developed numbness on the left side of my face below my eye through my jaw hence the what you guys call lack of a smile. I hear it a lot but I just ignore it 99.9% 0f the time. Trust me I was excited and definitely smiling on the inside even if it didn't show on the outside.

    My PH and his family are extremely concerned with the current actions of the government. They are 5 generations on their land so I would think they would know when to be concerned or not. I hope it doesn't happen!!

    You´re a lucky man, a bushpig on the first day.

    Are you sure it's not Bell's Palsy? Just saying, may not want to ignore that.
