    I've heard using a larger caliber rifle at the little red spot on this picture will aid in the reduction of bait consumption.

    Royal hope you have a blast. From the photos, it looks like you will be hunting 24 hours per day.

    Have a great time with Bossie and Beans. Sounds like a fun time.

    Look forward to hearing all about it.

    Thanks Bob!

    Bossie promised me at least three hours per day to relax. I told him it didn't seem like much time to be at the lodge and he said that relaxing time was in the blind. :eek: :rolleyes: :cool:

    In all seriousness I don't think either Bossie or Beans is planning to have much down time and I wouldn't have it any other way! I can sleep at home.

    The first fun of the trip!!!

    Sitting in the airport with @buddy48 and had a lady come sit next to me and ask if I hunted Africa. Told her I did of course.

    She told me that people like me don't have a conscious and will pay for it in the afterlife, basically that I was going to hell for the sin of hunting. I smiled and told her to have a great trip. No sense talking to people like that.

    We've had a good laugh and maybe it made her feel better too. ;)

    Good for you Royal - but it's easier to have that perspective when you're off on an adventure, rather than sitting down to dinner in a restaurant! However, I resolve to take your example . . .

    It really was funny... when she sat down and asked I could already see the hate in her eyes. So I wasn't blindsided. Smiling and telling her to have a nice day made her madder than anything else I could have said. She was one of those for sure!

    Good for you royal. I couldn't have resisted the temptation to tell her where and how to piss off.
