    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.

    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!
