    Thanks guys for the positive feedback.
    Just for the record there were certain details that I failed to mention in my report about my hunting partner "Stebe" as I was trying to show him some self respect.
    He is however, a left handed Blaser nut. Maybe him and Royal27 could hookup. ( Bolt on wrong side)
    He now tells me that his car needs 3 new tires, new universal joint and another battery, but its still OK to take it.
    Hey Roland I like the Badge
    I see FishuntDehaan is now with Victor and I am not his porter???????

    Neale,

    Great report enjoyed the read, congrats on the excellent results of your hunt. I have my first trip to the East Cape in 5 weeks time and certainly hoping for a similar experience as you have enjoyed. In the mean time a few more practice sessions off the sticks for me, its not as easy as it seams.

    Cheers, Markvm

    Neale,
    Had to reread your post, Stebe posts seems to be a little more of the real story. This goes for 90% of all hunts.

    6 weeks and 5 days (not that counting) until we leave for Karoo Wild Safaris, Haaspoort Lodge, Victor & Lindsay and the entire Watson family.

    Here's a pic of the first kudu bull of the season we hunted earlier this week. He has a very different shape of horns to Neale's first kudu but roughly the same length and age (49"). Think it illustrates well the variety of kudu we find in the Eastern Cape.

    Great looking gemsbok. How long were his horns?
