Just back from my second trip with Marius at KMG Safaris. Once again, I had an outstanding trip and hunt. After a good night’s rest at the lodge and catching up on a year gone by, I arose for the first morning’s hunt and headed out with Louw glassing for Nyala. We quickly spotted a pair of cows and two bulls and stalked in for a closer look. After determining that the second bull was indeed good we closed the distance between us and the Nyala as he continued to feed, directly facing away from us. We watched this bull for about a half hour as he stood directly facing away from us, patiently waiting for a shot opportunity. He finally turned right into some thick scrub and the waiting continued until he popped out into a small opening and I settled my crosshairs on his front shoulder and squeezed the trigger. He dropped in his tracks and my first animal of this safari was in the salt. We spent the afternoon walking and glassing for Bushbuck and the next day would find us off in pursuit of Waterbuck.
