Thanks for the report and recommendation. I have wondered about the buffalo hunts in South Africa. It is good to hear that it is possible to have a quality hunt with self sustaining herds. Thanks again.

Great looking animals, envious of the bushpig. Your buff is ideal, obviously older, hard bossed and wearing down the tips. Good to hear a good hunt report on ranched bulls that are not bought and dropped in.

@Red Leg What a beautiful old bull! With regard to your reluctance about hunting buff on a fenced property, were you afraid that they would be too docile or the opposite?

Regardless of their behavior, what I would refuse to participate in would be a put and take hunt for dangerous game. That violates my own personal perception of fair chase. I make no insinuation about anyone else’s decision in that regard. This hunt was anything but.

Reads like you had a great hunt here, glade it worked out, some very good Buffalo hunting in SA, I like hunting them around the Hoedspuit area .

That sure is a beauty of a Bushpig, looks to have very big tusks, was it big in body to or do you mean the tusks on biggest you have taken ?

Always hard to show the size of Pigs & Cats in photos !

Both. This was the best I had seen or actually taken. I am right up next to him and not trying to make him look large.

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
