An excellent hunt and report. I totally agree with your comment about the cost of an Elk hunt and hunting Africa being about equal. That is what got me to switch to a 10 day six animal hunt last August.

Bumping a old thread I started a year ago after my first safari. I recently received my taxidermy and thought I would share some pics. I decided to get a Kudu and Nyala shoulder mount done in South Africa. Turnaround time was a little over a year.

I have remained in contact with Wik from Game 4 Africa safaris and love watching the Facebook photos from all their great hunts. I enjoy talking to perspective clients and get to live vicariously through them when they visit.

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.

will Leica Amplus 6-2.5x15x50 fit on a pro success Blaser with low mount?

G'Day,
Long time no talk. I had a bad accident and was discharged from the hospital last Thursday after a three month stay. Am home now and all is well. So glad to be back. Missed you all on this board. Hope all is well with you. Killed a nice Mule deer last October and used the stainless Buffalo Skinner that worked to perfection and love the wood.
Regards, Mike in California.
