    When we three hunters decide to go to Marius, only I was sure about right decision. Other Korne and Augis fells like normal first timers: maybe few chances,and 2-3 trophies in 6 hunting days...After 9 months waiting wishes became 8-10 trophies in same 6 days... for me was shock, but not for Marius.Answer to this no problem we do it, now I got second shock -how ?It second time for me in KMG, let try. In 12th MAY we tested rifles in area!!! Adventure started...13th May morning:

    For Korne first crowling more 200m and last chance used -impala.
    Augis dream trophy of all time in first hours, and 2 warthogs not shot.
    After lunch

    In evening notice from PH to Augis- dont look to long with binoculars ! Left at home -I help him with decision. And it was key to success!

    If you crawl around and lay about a lot you can hunt at KMG! :)

    Thanks for sharing. Look forward to the rest of the story.

    I sympathize with Augis ... there are lots of distractions in those binoculars, but it looks like he figured it out! Great start ... thanks for sharing.

    Can Marius get you 2-3 trophies in 6 days? oh, that's good.

    Last year my wife and I went with a list of 8 animals together for an 8 day hunt.
    After 6 days of hunting, of which Lana only hunted about 4 days. Slept in some half-days and did a "girls's day out one day"
    She killed the 4 she wanted and I shot 7 and just finally decided to go quit hunting and go to game parks and do some other stuff she wanted to do.
    11 animals in 6 days.

    glad you had a great hunt!!

    I like your avatar. It is really cool how the curl of the Kudu's horn centers on it's eye.
    Glad you had an enjoyable hunt.

    Good thing there was a top grade appie PH willing to back his call with $$.
    Not many people are that self assured to call a shot like that.
    Well done.
