    Brickburn, what is the draw weight of your bow? It seems really powerful

    Wayne,

    Not a problem at all to help you organise some stuff to do and see in England. Its a shame your flight wasn't over night, so we could have organised some Roe stalking, but maybe next time.

    I will keep an eye on the news for the headline - 'Canadian tourist arrested after bow hunting royal stags'.

    Have a great trip. I particularly look forward to how you get on with the bushbuck, they are my number one animal for when I return.

    Tom

    I turned it down from 84 lbs to 72lbs at the moment.
    I ran some arrows through the chronograph and it chucks them at 310fps with my arrows.
    If I crank it back up it I can use one pin out to 60 yards. :)

    I'm more likely to be arrested for harassing them with the camera.

    Next time I will manage some time to chase a Row stag. Thanks for your help.

    Great start Wayne! Wishing you great success buddy. With the group of guys you will spending time with, you can't go wrong. This should be a interesting report!

    I really figured any arrest would have more to do with @spike.t and the flight to Joberg, but that's just me... :D Booze:

    I hope you have a good time, I have way too many irons in the fire right now. I guess I'll have to live through you living the dream this trip.

    Thanks for the well wishes guys..

    At four weeks, this trip will be my shortest trip to Africa so far.
    I am going to have to reverse the trend next time.

    Thanks guys.

    I think those Vaalies have a very good chance, but I am more than willing to give them a scare.
    My biggest nemesis is getting too darned excited when I am bow hunting.
    Targets are easy. Live critters up close get me sweating and shaking. :E Sweat:
