I hunted the first two weeks of this month with @Nick BOWKER HUNTING SOUTH AFRICA in the Eastern Cape, RSA, near Bedford. This was my second trip with Nick and Ben Pringle, my PH in 2021 and also 2022. Started hunting on Tuesday July 5 and ended on Thursday July 14. I had an even better trip this year than last year, but I was hunting mostly "glamour" antelope plus some add-ons if found. Base trophy package was for Sable, Red Lechwe, Waterbuck, Gemsbock, Kudu, Zebra and Red Hartebeest (the last 2 were swapped for the Nyala and Black Wildebeest, which I took last year). I also added Bushbuck, Steenbock, Common Duiker and another trophy Warthog if possible. I ended up taking all but a trophy Duiker but that was my fault. I knew what to expect with housing and hospitality and the abilities of the PH's, trackers and skinners, which is why I really wanted to hunt with Nick and Ben again. Flights were with United from Cincinnati to Newark, NJ, then to Johannesburg, then to Port Elizabeth. No canceled flights, some delays but otherwise uneventful both going there and returning. I was there with @justin wiles and @Jondnov at the same time (fellow AH'ers). Had a great time there with both of them. To be continued.....
