We gear up and head out the plan was to go out and check on some of the water holes on the property after driving for 20 minutes the truck pulled over and stopped. Having all disembarked Marius asks "you loaded " Thumbs up and we head into the bush we walk steadily single file, stopping every so often to check ahead of us, after 15 minutes I can see an earth embankment ahead this must be the water hole. the pace slows and everyone begins to take extra care with the placing of their feet. We reach the base of the earth dam and sit while Marius gingerly creep to the top of the earth bank and peer over the top there were three buff at the water. Marius spend what seems like an age looking at the buff and slides back down the bank. Marius waves me over two him and explains what we have. three bulls one with a nice drop good and solid a younger bull and an old dagga boy . He gets me to creep up the dam for a look and make sure it is a bull I am happy with . The bull with the deep curl is just what I was after but the old dagga boy kept pulling my attention away from the others. I slipped back down the bank out of sight. Marius and the guys were talking about the bulls every time they mentioned the old dagga boy there eyes lit up and they became quite animated in their discussion. I knew straight away from their reaction which bull I should target . When I told Marius which bull I wanted to go after he asked why I chose that bull and I told based purely on the way you guys reacted when you talked about the old bull. Marius then said " that old dagga boy would be my dream buff" so the hunt was on.
