    Ragman, congrats on your hunt, it was a great read .... I should be able to add on to the porcupine and bushpig saga once I finally get some time to write things up. Glad you had such a great time with Marius and KMG!

    Did you notice any quills missing from Aaron's porcupine?

    @Ragman, have enjoyed following your report and bringing up fond memories. Great words and some wonderful trophies that you achieved, and I'm hardly surprised you had a good time.

    Marius was probably just happy not to have another lot of Aussies in camp plying him with Rum!

    Cheers
    Tim

    PS...I know what you mean about those hounds. My girls kinda took a shine to them too, as they were missing their mutt back home......

    I must say Ragman's porcupine looks quite complete. Is that how it is suppose to look? :)

    Looking forward to it. Heard quite a bit about your porcupine adventures! If I can ever make it back, bushpig will be on the menu!

    Thanks Tim. While my hunt was progressing I was thinking of the similarity with yours. And those dogs were in grave danger of being stuffed in Tina's suitcase!

    Thanks for sharing your hunt with us. The East Cape is a great hunting destination. Congrats on some nice trophies. Looks to me like your part of the family according to the dogs....... Nice pics. Good writing.

    Thanks Rocky, was a great experience. You need to get a report done for your last hunt!
