I'm down to one month and one week to my final safari for awhile. Going up to the Limpopo Province to hunt for honey badger, civet cat, serval, genet, bushpig, red duiker, sharps grysbok, brown hyena, steenbok and common duiker.
Hopefully it's successful hunt with many memories to last a long time.... I don't know at this point if or when I'll be able to hunt again. Life takes many twists in the road, never say never.

That's an interesting species list - some tough hunts in there. Little bit of an unusual hunt, but sounds interesting - how many days do you have planned and what rifles do you plan on using/taking?

This is a good list of trophies. Hope you get every single one and have all the best memories of the hunt.

Neat list. Sounds like fun. Are you bringing your own rifle?

I'm hunting for 10 days. I think I'll bring my 7mm Rem Mag and just use 160 gr. Swift A frame. I'm not worried about blowing the animals to pieces.

The serval believe it not is the holy grail this trip. If I get one I would be SUPER HAPPY.

Life changes as we go along the journey :A Clapping:. I'm thinking of buying a house again, getting married and having a kid. If I put those wheels in motion, it will be hard to pay for hunting. It's all good I have had a good run. Regrets are a few, hunting wise but overall I'm satisfied. Overall I would have hunted the Big 5 right away over 15 years ago. Starting with a leopard.:A Yeah:

Hey Eric. Great to hear about your upcoming safari. I enjoy your reports and have wished to be there with you a couple of times. Sounds like you are contemplating some major changes in your life. I hope it works out to to be the best it can be. Your life changes may not make it easy to go to Africa, but certainly not impossible. Just make sure and set up a "hunting account" and add to it every payday. Sooner or later you'll make it again. Africa gets that hold on you and you just have to go....
Best of luck on this hunt. Some very interesting critters on your list. Should be rather interesting I'd say. Looking forward to hearing how your hunt goes. Bruce

One of the reasons I went in to nursing was to hopefully find someone to spend the rest of my life with every day. I think I have finally sound someone special. Hence the wheels of change are in motion. I have to find a house to fit my mounts in or be able to alter the property or house to fit all of my mounts...which is quite the dilemma. I like to do all the work myself or find someone that does good work for decent wages. A lot of work ahead, considering I work too much at the hospital already.

I had very good success last year on the small antelope, so lets hope the dice roll 7's and 11's.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
