    Thanks Tim, My PH was even a little excited as he does not often see the snakes either. This is the second python I have seen in 7 safaris.

    Great report of a wonderful trip! Heck, a great start for a son to be proud of shooting an heirloom Model 70, the satisfaction of squeezing the trigger of a '95 .405 on a terrific nyala up close and personal...does it get any better? Congratulations. I have to wait until next year to " blood my .405" again and I am hoping for a nice blue bull and nyala as good as yours this time.

    Thanks PB! Eland was going to be the big prize for me but as you see it didn't happen. Oh well, my boy says he wants to do this again, so maybe next time. Gotta love how the .405 hammers game. Good luck on your next trip over!

    Thanks, we are. I didn't shoot much but Nate shot well especially considering its his first hunting trip anywhere. It was also gratifying to see the load I worked up for his rifle work so well. Gotta love the Barnes Triple Shock!
