Wow,
Just returnd from hunting with Marius Goosen KMG Hunting Safaris in Eastern Cape.
What an awesome trip. My mate Ray and I hunted with Marius previously 2 years ago and after making great friends and taking some great trophies promised we would return.
This trip we brought our wives along and went to Pumba Game Reserve and the wives did Addo Elephant Park and local town shopping/sight seeing while we hunted .
Marius and the team at KMG treated us like family and we all had a fantastic time.

My mate Ray took a great Kudu Bull we had watched in heavy cover for most of the day and took it at 250mtrs with my 325WSM later in the day as it feed down the ridge with some Kudu cows.

Second trophy was my Eland Bull first spotted by Marius two ridges away (1.5miles away)on a hillside bench and after tough stalk in mountainus terrain we got within 150mtrs.
I took the bull with a shoulder shot with my Browning A Bolt 325wsm as soon as a broadside shot presented.
The bull took the shot and lunged forward but was visibly mortally hit but two more insurance shots to the shoulder anchored him within 10 metres.

Third trophy was my Waterbuck Bull taken at 210mtrs with my 325wsm in the last half hour of light on the last day.
The Waterbuck Bulls on this trip had been hard to locate as Marius said with all the recent rain and feed in the bush they didnt need to venture out in the open as much to feed.

Marius's effort to find exceptional trophies over the 7 days was amazing, he never gave up and always had a plan "B" to every situation.

We all made new friends and had a fantastic time, already thinking about the a future returm to KMG in the near future.

Glad you had a great hunt.

Thanks for sharing it with us.
 
Love that old eland bull, fantastic!

I love the 325wsm its a great calibre and hits really hard. I find it great medicine for the Sambar Stags we have here in Australia.

Yes it was a huge effort put in on Marius's behalf, he's a machine and that's what I like about his hunting.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
