Day 1 I arrived Joberg at 5:30AM and my bag was one of the first off the carousel and I quickly made my way to check in my gun. Anna from Gunpermits.com was waiting for me in the reception hall and Dawie Kemp showed up shortly thereafter. There were about a half dozen hunters in the office so it took around 30 minutes to complete the process. Dawie and I hit the road for his camp which is approximately three hours from the airport. With a couple of stops we got to camp by ten and I met Marco and quickly unpacked my gear and got things organized. Lunch was to be at twelve so we went to the range to check the rifles. I will be using Dawies .22 and 7X57 (suppressed) for the night hunting and my 338 Lapua for daytime hunting. All the guns were on so we went to check the bait from last night. The game camera showed that Bushpigs came in and stayed most all night and devoured half a Warthog! It was a shame as the nights before there were 3 different Honey Badgers, 2 different Brown Hyena, 2 different Genet and several Civet. My objective on the night hunt is Genet, Honey Badger and if I am lucky Brown Hyena. In addition, there is a huge old Sable Bull we will hunt during the daytime hours. With the bait nearly gone, Marco suggested we put fresh bait since the Bushpig ate nearly everything the previous night. That coupled with the fact they stayed around the bait all night it kept the other critters from coming in. We saw some Zebra but couldn’t get a shot so we headed to camp for lunch. Sitting on the veranda looking out across the veldt with the mountains in the background I was impressed with the beauty of this area in the Limpopo. After lunch we shot Dawie’s crossbow a few times as I may use it when I hunt the Sable Bull. It has been very dry and Dawie has a blind at a waterhole frequented by the Sable herd so we will hunt there tomorrow. We took a drive to look for bait animals and finally came up on a herd of Wildebeast that we culled an old female out of. With a clean heart shot there was no tracking so we drove over and loaded her up after a couple of customary photos.
