What a fine hunt reedy. Glad you got what you wanted and more in the buff. You had to work for him which makes a difference! I knew you would have a great time with Paw Print Safaris!

Start planning the next trip!

You need to put that in a shadow box along with shell casings for a great memory!

Lee,
I did not see the skinner recover it, but I'm pretty sure it was in the shoulder area

We also recovered another A frame from the buff, which I didn't take a pic of before I left it with Pieter for a memento of the hunt!

You guys had to work for that buff so I guess Pieter wanted a little reminder!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Wow, great response regarding the title of a thread and an amazing site.

I am interested in hearing about your wild lion hunts.

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
