You should elaborate, regardless on how bad you suck at typing. Pictures, what did you shoot, game plentiful, etc....

Hell, you don’t have to be a Hemingway to be part of this group of monkeys.

Hi All

Just a short description of this hunt, Mark had 3 main species on his list, Bushpig, Bushbuck and Common Duiker and then we were planning on a few cull animals. We gave enough days for the bushpig to try be as successful as possible. We picked Mark up from Port Elizabeth and got to the lodge around 3pm, unpacked checked the rifle and went to a lookout to see what we could see, what do you know there are 3 bushpig in the river below us. We moved around and started a long stalk up river to see if we could be lucky to shoot a bushpig in day time, we took our time and when we got there 2 of the 3 bushpig were in the water busy eating water lilies, there was a nice boar, Mark got on the sticks and made a great shot, bushpigs downon the first afternoon in day time.

The following days we tried hunting bushbuck, we saw lots and looked them over and did this for a couple of days. One afternoon we saw 4 rams and there was an old ram and we decided to stalk him and again a great shot was made and we had a bushbuck down. We did not manage to connect with a Duiker, saw lots but just never got into the right position. In the following days we shot 4 cull warthog and 3 cull Impala. We also managed to shoot a cull zebra.

It was a great hunt all round.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
