Hunting reports
My dream finally came true after 30 yrs of my first ever video of watching buffalo hunting with Mark Sulliavn and also
Peter Capstick Hathway I prepared myself to once and for all to have the courage to book my hunt and preperations to travel
to the Dark continent .
That been said on August 06-2022 I arrive to Johasnerburg SA to beging my dream hunt for buffalo and kudu
Mr Bayly was already waiting for me at the airport that evening along with also SA rifle permits for my arrival it was a simple
process for me to obtain my luggage and rifle case must it only taken me 15 mins and then I was on my way to the hunting camp.

I must say that immediatly made a connection with Dempsy on the way to the camp his lovely fiance had prepared us sandwiches hot coffee and chocolate brownies that were excellent and did come in well after out first 2 days hunting for extra caloires and energy.

The accomedations were excellent and the staff were all very pleasent and caring I felt like in a 5 stars resort ,food drinks sleeping accomedations laundry were all excellent and I must say the food was fantastic in flavor and presentation .

So for my fisrt ever safary i brought my long favorite bolt action custome 450 ackley on a BRNO 602 with my own handloads with IMR 4895
fed 215 and hornady 500grs both soft point/solids=DGX/DGS FOR MV=2350 FPS with leupold 1.5-6x scope and for my plains game my
good companion from other hunts Mark-V 340 wby with my handloads IMR4831/FED 215 and nosler 250grs partitions @2950 fps .
I brought my new swarvoski binos 10x42 and my new leather safary belt.
I will post pics later on of my trophies and equipment.

Please tell more.
Thanks for sharing. Nice trophies taken. Congratulations on your hunt.

Quick question. Why do you have 2 of the same hunting reports? The newest one the same as the first one, just with pictures added. Could you not add to your original report?
Congrats and thanks for sharing!

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
