Congrats, some great trophies taken! I'm sure taking that bushpig in daylight was like adding a cherry to the top of the cake.

Congrats on a fine hunt and great buffalo. I remember when I first booked my hunt with KMG safaris for my buffalo hunt last August, I too was very unsure on the experience of a fenced hunt. I do remember you being leery on that, I know my experience was a good one and now I am glad your fenced buff hunt was too. Very nice animals.

Great hunt sir! The other bulls hooking their fallen brother is an interesting sight to experience. In my on case I heard the smacking before I saw what was happening. Thanks for sharing your report. Glad you enjoyed your hunt in South Africa.

Not the qualified judge as many here are, but the black wildebeest appears to me to be monster of your different species taken. And a great story as always! Congratulations!

Red Leg, I don't know how I missed this when it was first posted. I usually read everything you post. At the time I was competing in the National Pistol Matches at Camp Perry and followed up with an AH Group hunt with Paw Print Safaris. You obviously had a great hunt.

Red Leg,

Not sure how I missed this report for several months (asleep at the wheel as usual perhaps).
I enjoyed reading it thoroughly.
Congratulations on a successful time there in the Limpopo vicinity.
The critters you took are all beauties and more importantly, the experiences you enjoyed will obviously remain in your fond memory forever.
Thank you for posting yet again another great report.

Best Regards,
Velp Dog.

A well written report. Thanks. It was real nice to get an experienced articulate hand, give an account of hunting the Limpopo. My limited experience hunting SA had sort of soured me on going back. Perhaps I will put it back on the radar.

Nice report. There are some lovely large properties in that area around the Waterberg Mountains. And completely agree on the leopard situation. We saw big tracks several days when hunting the mountain concession I hunted for reedbuck, bushbuck, and klippy last June. Saw drag marks from a recent kill one afternoon, so we backed out of that area pretty quickly. Apparently they had 6 different Toms on game camera at this one concession and no tags for years.

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
