This was a hunt I have been waiting on for 2 years. It was bitter sweet as this was a hunt my son would not be joining me on. You know a 17 year old boy starts a different kind of hunting and he found him another lioness he liked. LOL It was still going to be fun as lee was joining me again and 3 new guys. Lee has a report going also with plenty of good info to see. This will be about my hunt for the most part. This was a hunt for me but also a trip to look at pieters areas that I have not seen. I wanted to gain all the info I can so when I talk with guys I have facts. I still have more areas to see so darn I will just need to get back. Pieter keeps adding areas to keep quality of game high as he grows paw print. The other nice thing I get to see as I meet the new landowners is they all like working with Pieter. That tells me a lot about how Pieter is doing things the right way. Have some more new areas coming up for next year and will still have all the old places as well. I also got to meet the ph's Pieter is working with and some new guys who helped out with the group. With 5 hunters plus Charlie in camp Pieter added some ph's to help and they all did a fine job. Was great meeting Jonathon and prop as they are the main guys now who help Pieter. I was the lucky one I guess you could say and would have prop as my ph. One of the new guys going with would be going with also. My main goal was to make sure doug had a blast and hunt if I saw something I liked. After some 40 plus days in sa over the last few years I knew I did not need to rush. I do think doug thought I was crazy as I just watched him hunt a few days but he learned fast. After a few days of hunting and watching doug take some nice trophies Prop and I made a plan to look for a giant klipspringer we both had seen over the last two years. Since we wanted to show doug the view from the top of one of the areas we hunt we would have a look and see if we could get lucky. As we drive up the mountain Prop is ready to show me were he saw it last when I realized it was within 20 yds of were we had seen it two years ago. Just like that I see something moving and dam if it was not him. Prop could not see it and I lost sight as it moved. We move up the road some and I hear Prop say shot him it is right there. I say were and he tells me in the rocks as we are both looking at a rock mountain. LOL just as I spotted him again he moves in the bush and is gone. As we both start to laugh as we realize how dumb it was to say in the rocks as that was all that was in front of us. More on the little nightmare of an animal later on. We make it to the top to see a herd of mtn reedbuck 17 in total but no males at all in the group. We did get to see two free range springbuck running around on top of the totally opened mtn top. Plus a group of 8 blesbuck running around with the ram in the group being 16" plus. We took some good pics which I do not have as my camera broke and I have not talked with doug about getting some from him.
