Sounds like a good safari. Congrats on some nice animals. Glad you checked off the Nyala with a bow!

One thing that has never happened on any of our trips before was our bows were taken to the firearm check in at Atlanta and searched for any thing that might have blood or tissue, arrows broadheads ect. Also they made us retrieve our luggage and bring our hunting boots to be sprayed and bagged. Don't know if it's a new requirement or just someone being a ASS. Nothing like that was done last year.

Jeff, I now what you mean about more room in the house.
I have mine for sale now to downsize since all my kids have moved out, build a smaller house with a trophy room off to the side, still have 9 animals I haven't mounted from Namibia last year .Forrest

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

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.
