    Hunt Africa in April 2018 and October 2019. Just got back from Limpopo South Africa. I hunted with @Limpopo Big Game Safaris. Bossie did a great job, 10 animals in 9 days.

    A great hunt with a great outfitter.

    WOW! 10 animals in 9 days! “Whack and stack”! Some busy skinners! Also some fine trophies! Congratulations!

    Oh yes, and a belated but hearty welcome to AH!

    Congrats Bryan! I followed your hunt on Bossie's fb page. Really like the bushpig and red duiker! I'm going to have to get back for those as well as civit, mongooses, and few others;)

    Was that the same Bossie that was gored about a year ago? If so, he seems to be doing ok now!

    Yes, we were all anxious but Bossie is a true professional. I could not keep up with him. He is tireless.

    It was shortly after my early season hunt with him. I think he had the accident/encounter with that wounded buffalo in early April.

    He is a blast to hunt with! On my first hunt with him we were on foot hunting a steep hillside orchard for red duiker, going uphill. We got to the top and it had been the last stalk of the last day of the hunt and I was winded and tired. I noticed Bossie was puffing and I commented that I had given it my all to keep up with him..... He replied in a somewhat wheezy voice... "Damn, I was just trying to keep up with you!" We had a good laugh over that;)

    This March we had a night where I took 9 critters. It was an epic night:) Including a 5.5" steenbok, serval, bat eared fox, and aardwolf. Plus Bossie took an aardwolf for himself making it 10 head! 20 total for the hunt.

    Bossie & his boy are a wonderful pair. I had the pleasure of getting to hunt with them September 2018. Congratulations on you hunt fellow Texan!

    Welcome to AH. Ten animals in nine days. You needed the long flight home to give your trigger finger a break.
    Congrats on having such a successful hunt.

    Thanks everyone. ActionBob I followed your hunt also. I still have the WhatsApp pictures from Bossie's updates from your hunt. Bossie is the best. I am going to do a 10 day night hunt with him some day soon.

    Congrats on a great hunt. Would love to see you take time to give us some more details. All the way from rifles used to stalks on particular animals.

    Thanks for the hunt report @Justbryan
    It's always a pleasure to hunt with you.

    We had an absolute BLAST on this hunt
    from chasing Buffalo in the tall grass to waiting for Bushpigs in a blind. Everything was just a whole bunch of fun.

    We are all looking forward to your return trip for a few of the Night Critters.

    You are welcome. I had a great time. I loved the Cape Buffalo hunt but the Beshpig is really what got my heart racing. Strange to be calm for Cape Buffalo and anxious for Bushpig.
