Thanks 35bore it was a great hunt, hard but great. Half way through the hunt my PH and friend Rusty was a little down hearted I ask him what was wrong and he told me he wanted it to be great like last time 9 animals in 7 days and I let him know it was. Last time it went so smooth for a first timer that it was unreal, this time we had a full moon working against us you could see the animals feeding at night nature I think had it against me wind, rain, full moon fog so thick on the mountain it was 9:30 am before we could glass for vaalies meeting challenges at every turn thats what made it so great the trophies were just the icing on the cake.

Thanks again guys it was a great hunt. I got an email from Cecil at Umilindi Taxidermy a couple of days ago confirming what I wanted for mounts so they could get started I'll post some pics in 4 or 5 months when I get them in. Mounts are; Com Reedbuck shoulder mount, back skin , Nyala wall pedestal half mount, back skin, Hartebeest shoulder mount, back skin, Warthog full body mount and Zebra floor pedestal mount, back skin.

Thanks Guys the guys at work thought I lost it when at 5:45am I'm checking my emails when I jump up and yell! They all look at me and ask whats the matter with you? and I tell them they found my Vaal Rhebok and they ask are you crazy yeah I am I had already written off that 1250.00 bucks to bad luck, looks like I had a turn of luck. Next trip its Eland and Bushbuck to put a slam on my Spiral Horn.

Congrats Bob, Im glad they found him for you. The $1250 isnt as big a deal as losing something you worked so hard for.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
