We hunted bushbuck mostly in the morning hours and then in the afternoon would hunt other species. One day we decided to go after Randee's impala. The weather was marginal but we tried anyways. Things just didnt quite work out the way they should so we backed out for another try. The following day we tried again. The weather was a little better but would occassionally rain. A band of bachelor rams was found just before they entered some heavy brush. We just watched for some time and finally they started moving about again. A plan was put together that Marius and Randee would go it alone and would sneak the brush line in attempts to catch the band unaware. I stayed at the bucky and watched along with Lloyd. It wasnt all that long and they were in the area. From my vantage point I could see many of the band, while I am sure they could not. As the approached several younger males stared in the hunters direction and appeared to be getting nervous. They then moved up a little then went back to feeding. Randee and Marius were now closing the distance and I could still see eight rams together in a small opening seemingly oblivious to the hunters approach. I was over a half-mile away and watching things unfold from a distance can be very deceiving, but the hunters appeared close. Finally I saw Marius put up the sticks and could see Randee put the rifle up. I saw a ram that appeared to be the biggest and focused on him. Some of the rams appeared to be getting nervous again when I am certain I saw the impact of the bullet in the rams side. All at once the rams blew out of there and a moment later I heard the report of the rifle. Marius called for me to bring the bucky around and to bring the tracking dog. It took a little time before I arrived. When I finally made it, Marius had found good blood. The dog was turned loose and moments later the ram was found only yards away. Beautiful young lady, beautiful ram.
As it turns out, they had crept to within 30 yards of the unsuspecting rams. Impressive.
sounds almost exactly like my son, Matt's, impala hunt with Marius. we watched from a 500 yards away. took what seemed like forever, but the shot came at about 20 yards, I think. congrats.

What a great story.
The girls expressions capture the mood.
You were true to the plan, Penguins, Lighthouses, hunting and looking after your girls.

Nice job. Thanks for sharing.

Marius, good on you.

Thanks for sharing your hunt with us :)
I really enjoyed reading your report and looking at the great pictures.

Nothing is better than sharing quality time with your kids. Specially when it involves hunting!:D
Some really nice animals there.
If I manage to get something like those with my bow this year, I will be very happy.
And if I get a Duiker like yours, I will be over the moon!

my pleasure Randy. I knew you'd like it and felt strongly your daughters would be well looked after.
My wife, Lana, and I are trying to coordinate our going possibly in 2014. The kicker is that my daughter graduates college in 2014 and I've promised to take her on any hunt she desires after she's through with college. When I made the offer I assumed she'd choose Africa in 2015, but she wants a mule deer hunt. She is saying she's afraid to fly that far and to be in another country. I'm trying to hold out for her to change her mind and the 3 of us go together in 2015. I'm going to talk with her about the penguin place you visited. She loves them. I'm also trying to convince her an African safari would be a good add-in to her college studies, a veterinary tech. So, maybe. just maybe.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
