Wayne, I guess you're not counting the days anymore like I am. Hope you have a good flight and a great hunt in South Africa.

Here's something to grace the sky in Simon's camp next to your Maple Leaf. :D

1200 km drive to get here from Joburg. Saw lots of critters along the way.
Too numerous to note in an update.

My Ghillie suit made it.
Watching the All Blacks and Boks playing Rugby.

Only blowing through town and posting from the passenger seat as we go though Grahamstown and running down the R67 at 100km.

Bolt on the deck spotting Impala the first night.

Out chasing Bushbuck with the Bow all day long.
Walk and Stalk.

Passed on two at thirty yards. One at full draw and the other just a picture.
Pictures still on the camera.

Damn there are a lot of Bushbuck not his place.
Giving them a day off tomorrow and then back at it Wednesday morning.

Waterbuck bulls , Nyala Bull.
Saw my first Oribi this morning. Very cool. Awesome trophy ram.

More later. Just a taste.

Marius says Hi.

It'll look like a Sweet Grass Coutts border crossing in Mozambique
Thanks. Flight were the flights, as always. You survive them not enjoy them. :)

Wayne, how I envy you, but a week and a half ago I was sitting in that chair, less the ghillie suit. Now, firmly back in a cubicle :( There are some fine bushbuck there and I took my third this year, will try and post a few photos this week. Good luck!

So how'd you like Terminal 5 at LHR? The ghillie suit looks good on you, you're much prettier that way! (y)

Brickburn, you should pick up a rake with a proper handle while you are in South Africa for that fellow working for TMS in Mozambique.;)

I predict a Big Foot sighting in the East Cape soon. Who knew Sasquatch was even in Africa?

Hunted our butts off yesterday.
Two Bushbuck Rams under 25 yards.
Eye balled each other for minutes..

One Bushbuck ram at 5 yards and I could not get my camera out as he had me pinned.
It all gets the heart going pretty well
Stepped on another in his bed.

Waterbuck Cow and 8 yards and she was not happy with me that close.

Marius has Bushbuck here boy.....(y)(y)

Wildebeest Bull sleeping in one spot all day.

As I was stalking in the thick stuff I rounded a corner and came face to face with some dangerous game and fended off a full blown charge.
I dove onto the ground to try and hide but he kept coming an hissing the entire way.
Thankfully he turned at about 18 inches....
Scary stuff when you are laying on the ground.

Marius found me a good Kudu bull to stalk and I went after him up the side of the mountain.
Got within twenty five yards and want to just make sure I had the distance bang on and went for the range finder and managed to "tick" my release on it and "Bang". That Kudu left like he was shot out of a Canon.
I was pissed off at myself.... took quite a bit of walking before I shook that one off. :mad::mad::mad:

I quit for the day and went after some Egyptian Geese with the bow.
No joy on that front today.

Later saw this little girl up in the krans
Bushbuck Ewe.jpg






Today was a jackal hunting day and it was another interesting adventure that I will share details when I get back.



The greatest news of today was first blood was finally drawn

Nice smooth double taken from the jumped pair. Bound for the taxidermist and then my office.
I wanted these guys so bad I could taste it.

First Blood Double.jpg


Of course the African Retriever was in on it at the end. Here at his shivering best.
(My wife will be happy about this achievement. It was an assignment that I gladly took on. :D

Glad to have the company of good dogs and a great PH.
The best of trophy hunting to take days to get the chances.

By the way a high of ZERO Celsius tomorrow and a high of SIX Celsius.
(Home is supposed to be 30 degrees C)
The Bushbuck will be shivering in the sun in the morning. They do not stand a chance. ;)

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
