    Congrats on a great hunt and some beautiful animals! I am one of the lucky baboon hunters...managed to get on on my 4th day as they were coming for water. Huntershill looks like a quality outfit!

    Great report and photos. Congratulations on the long range shooting, you appeared to be more comfortable doing it than I would be since most of my hunting is done at under a hundred yards.

    I hate shooting off sticks (mental block) and avoid it whenever possible. However up north where there is plenty of short scrub you have no choice. In the EC particularly at HH I used a long bipod and shot from a sitting position, way more stable. Here at home I haven't ever killed a deer over 50 yds, just can't see that far in the scrub

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. You have helped me out immeasurably over the years with helpful advice and the do's and don't's of hunting Africa. This is the best site out there on Africa Hunting and it is because of the people here.

    I am surprised at how large the baboon looked in the picture. What did he weigh?

    Congrats on a great hunt! I'll be back at Huntershill next June. Going to see what being an observer is like!
