I'm 3 days into my trip and having a grand ole time. I'll write up a better report when I get back but wanted to share some pics. Got a nice wide Blesbok the second morning and got nice Gemsbok this afternoon. The first day I took a shot at a zebra but only managed to kill the stick in front of it.

That's a cool looking blesbuck, and don't worry there have been many Stick, branch and tree kills. Look forward to reading more updates.

Great start. I always told myself I would only ever take one blesbuck but if I would have seen that one I would have number 2 now.

I'll get all the questions in one post:

The leg is holding up good! I can't complain. Little stiff each night but hasn't slowed me down I don't think.

Riaan is my PH. Nothing but good things. Joshua is our tracker/driver

It is a female Gemsbok. I'm no judge of these things, but I was told it was a thicker/heavier female. I'm super pumped anyway and think it will look great!

On the Blesbuck, I hadn't planned to take one but we saw some and Riaan asked if I wanted one. I told him if there was an exceptional one I would be stupid not to take, but otherwise I would pass. He glassed them a min and said, "let's go, there is a really wide one I've been hunting all year. Not as thick, but really wide." So off we went!

Took my Zebra this morning in the ultimate "Take what Africa gives you" test. I had started the trip with Zebra or Gemsbok, whatever we get first. We spent the better pet of 3 days chasing Zebra and then connected with the gemsbok. So I was thinking Zebra was my African Nemesis. Well, we saw this great Zebra today hunting Kudu and I decided to stay on budget but take the Zebra and then either a bushbuck, hartebeest or wildebeest, whichever we came across first that falls into the same "you'd be an idiot not to" category as the Blesbok. So, next trip is for Kudu! I just had worked so hard for the Zebra I was really happy to take it home.

For a guy with a bad leg, you're doing excellent!

Got a red hartebeest and my impala. Now on the hunt for a baboon (my 7 year old asked me to shoot one when I asked what present he wanted from Africa!)

Really great trophies you're taking! That blesbok is really an eye-catcher and the zebra is really gorgeous with hardly any shadow-stripes! Good luck with the baboon!

Adrenaline is a sure-fired cure for a gimpy leg. Sounds like you are having a great time and have been lucky enough to bag some great animals.
