Best of luck Sjakon! Absolutely loving the "real time" nature of your posts. Enjoying the images of sights and scenery too. You must know we are hanging on in great anticipation. By the way, really nice Impala! - Bill
Well we drove past a water hole and saw a giant buffalo running away.
We drove away and later stalked for a couple of Km.
Marius got me into position and gestured to me to get up. There was this huge black buffalo walking quickly to the right at 20m. All those pointers on avoiding wounding a buffalo and the correct killing shot went through my head and I hesitated and he was covered by a bush. Marius was very gracious about the whole episode.
Sjakon, I feel for you on that brief opportunity at the waterhole. But the old saying is true; "discretion is the better part of valor". You'll get another crack at one. We're all raising our glass tonight and pulling for you guys tomorrow!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
