Great animals and hugely impressive civet. Shooting in the dark (literally) is tough, but you got a great one!

You'll have to go back for the honey badger!
Thanks Hank! This was my first experience hunting at night in Africa and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'm already planning a return trip for that badger and bushbuck!!

You'll have a great time and I hope you get a big one! I did see several other nice ones after I got mine.

I wish I had the time to go back again this year....maybe next year though.

Be sure and post a report when you get back too!

I am extending the Sable hunt by 5 days. Want to enjoy the hunt , the hospitality, the food, and the stalks. I enjoy the stalks as much or more than the shots.

10 days will be great! Wish I could've stayed that long....

Recently got back from Sable hunt. Took a good Sable, Kudu, and a Cape Buffalo. The Buffalo became available on short notice. He green measured 44 inches wide. Will have shoulder mount of Sable and Cape Buffalo done at Bulls Eye taxidermy. Eureopean mount of Kudu, and skin tanned into leather. Of course the hunt and experience were great.

Yes sir...I was following along on Facebook. You definitely got some fine animals! I'll be back in SA in November and plan on stopping by Bull's Eye to drop off some more animals(hopefully) and check on my animals from May. I'll keep an eye out for yours and take some pics for you....if they've started them.

Are you going to do a hunt report? I'm sure we'd all enjoy hearing about your hunt and seeing pictures.

Congrats again!

Attaching photos. Photos worth a thousand words. The variety of animals in Africa is amazing.

Hunted with Rouan and Brandon again in August 2019. Harvested a Croc, Black Wildebeast, Springbuck, and Warthog. Had a great time and hunt.

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
