Great report and some exceptional animals. That kudu was exceptional. I loved the fact you kept going back looking for him until you nailed him. Enjoyed your writing style.
That sable is in trouble.

Great hunt. Enjoyed your writing style. Stud of a Kudu. The Red Hartebeast is no slouch either. Sounds like your shooting was good and your rifle did a great job.

Did you by any chance recover any of the Barnes 235 TSX bullets?

Here are the recovered bullets

I was really enjoying this report until the damn snake showed up. :A Outta:

The Kudu and black wildebeest make up for the snake. :A Banana:

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
