Trevor Lake of Lake Safaris (Lake Safaris - South Africa) has taken the time to send me a couple of pictures of 2 very Happy Nyala hunters. I just wanted to share them with our members on the AH forum.

As discussion on AH has widened on weather the animals are fenced or free range. The area that Trevor Lake Safaris hunts is Wide open and as Free Range as you will find.

As you will see one Nyala bull has Flaring tips, which by the way is very common on the free range property that Trever Lake has sole hunting rights to. So if you are looking for a good 30 inch Nyala Bull to add to your trophy room this is the place to give it a go. All the Nyala bulls that i saw had the flaring in the horns.

The second is a Good Nyala bull that has narrow tips. They are there however i did not see any with this configuration.

Gorgeous animals.
Thanks for sharing them James.
Beautiful, thanks James!
I like the look of that first nyala...impressive!!!
Nice. I have been amazed at the number of species and areas that offer good free range hunting in SA, you just have to know where to look. So far I have hunted low fence Nyala, Kudu, Mountain Reedbuck, Vaal Rhebok, SA Springbok, Steinbok, Duiker (although they are winning so far), Warthog, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Impala and I am sure I have missed something. Low fence certainly adds something to the hunt for me although I have no problem with large high fence properties either.
Where I will be hunting this August for Nyala in KwaZulu is all free range, 60,000 acres. They are over run with Nyala, 26" is the min. they will harvest but we will be looking for something bigger. So many Nyala have pushed the Bushbuck into the thick stuff, they will be a challenge too.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
