Well Folks the wife and I just returned from the Eastern Cape and had an Awesome time. This will be a 2 part report as we spent 5 day Hunting with Father and Sons Safaris http://fatherandsonssafaris.co.za/ and 5 days hunting with Huntershill Safaris http://huntershillsafaris.co.za/ Well to start out we left Memphis Tn On American Airlines on 8 May and flew in to Philadelphia for a 6 hr layover then switched to Qatar Air to fly to Doha for a 9 hr layover I will add this the airport in Doha is one of the nicest and Cleanest airports I have ever flown into and out of but the layovers are long going over. I was also traveling with Archery equipment a Crossbow but had no issues with that at all they put a sticker on the case that said it had been inspected in Doha so I just left it on there for the return trip. We then flew Qatar to Jberg for another 3 1/2 hr layover then on to Port Elizabeth on British airways arriving on 10 May 47 hours later. Now for those of you wondering about Qatar Air the long flight from Philadelphia to Doha was great very comfortable flight with plenty of leg room we flew economy and the flight was as good or better then Delta paying extra for the comfort seats. the other shorter flights were about the same as American Airlines. Well Rusty and Jami met us as we came out we collected our baggage and was on our way to Cradock to spend the next 5 days hunting Duiker, Bushpig, Blesbok and Fallow deer. That evening we enjoyed an awesome meal and planned our hunt for the next 5 days, we were planning to take all of our animals with a crossbow if at all possible so early the next morning Rusty sets up the target to check the crossbow we decided to make it 60 yards max for the range as we showed Rusty we could shoot sub 1 inch groups with our Piledriver crossbow shooting at 390 fps even with a slight breeze. So after checking the Crossbow we head out to find Deb a Blesbok, we spot 2 off on the hillside and the stalk is on. One had already spotted us as we made the stalk so he decided to stay out at about 150 yards and in the brush whenever we saw him so we decided to try for the other one and we got to within 42 yards but couldn't get a shot as he always made sure there was a bush of some kind between us and him. Well after a couple of hours of playing games with us and I was getting tired of climbing all over those hills with those dang round rocks rolling under my feet I looked at Rusty and said time to switch to the 300 and at 130 yards Deb quickly put an end to his game of cat and mouse. Now it's time to get a bite to eat and plan for this evenings Poor Man's Leopard hunt!
