Nice animals Bob! You sure had a mixed bag hunt. I really enjoyed reading about the hyena as they fascinate me.

Awesome Bob, you got me on the edge of my seat. Congrats on the lion and buff. I'm sorry it didn't work out the way you hoped but you still have a fantastic cat! Great report and congrats.

Great story Bob - thanks for posting and the great pics. I think you still took a beautiful lion regardless of the circumstances.
Cheers,

I hope I get to encounter your Bushbucks cousin. One more interested in concealment than running. Should make a bow stalk a little easier.

One thing that pissed me of last trip when it happened to me: The Bakkie cowboy spoiling stalks. That twit made it feel just like opening day of Antelope at home, nothing I thought I would ever encounter being the only hunter on a property. Sorry you got the extra help.

Congrats on some very nice trophies.

Bob, congrats on the many fine animals on your hunt, and thanks for posting a great report.

I enjoyed reading that you hunted with Koos. I hunted Nyala and a few other critters with him in 2005. We got along great.

Yea he is pretty easy going... At one point he was trying to explain how he needed his "beauty sleep"... I just looked at him for a couple seconds and said, "your right!" That caught him off gaurd for second then he let out a big laugh. But we went hunting every day instead of napping Mid day away after that. He is a trooper, and very thorough....

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
