Awesome report and congrats on an amazing hunt and animals.

If you shoot and hit keep shooting.

If you shoot and miss, well keep shooting.

Two Buffalos in 30 seconds...… WOW!! Was that intentional, or did you think you were still shooting at the first one?

We thought we were after the first one, but he was already down. We surprised the second one. Either way, I had a two buffalo license!

Its hard to describe how beautiful this hide is. Striking and vivid contrast. No shadow stripes and few scars. Grade A, for sure.

Congratulations on a fabulous pair of buffalo and a great Safari — and very well told.

Thank you for a great report. You took some great animals and the Zebra is amazing.

Days 6 & 7 spent chasing around wart hogs (elusive little buggers) with no luck. We decide to ditch the hog hunting and move to another camp to look for Impala.

Day 8
Start the day at 6:00. After impala today. Drive out of camp for 50 yards and spot a Dugga boy standing quietly by the road. We stop, back up for a better look, and he immediately charges us. I mean a full on charge! Head swinging, slobber flying, running like he intended to kill us all. We start shouting and, just before he hits the truck, he veers off to the left and is gone! We all take a second to collect ourselves, laughing as the adrenalin wears off.

We spot all kinds of wildlife, but no impala. Until, 10:30 we spots a herd about 200 yards out.

A little side note here about our hunting party and how it worked every day. There was the driver, and the government scout, then me and Hilary standing in the back, and three trackers behind us. While we were driving, one tracker looked for sign on the left, one looked for sign on the right, and the center man and Hillary continually scanned the savanna for animals. This was very effective and amazing to watch. This teamwork continued on foot, with the Scout (the government man) an integral part of the team. Believe me, when this crew is after you, you're in trouble. Every bit as deadly as the .416. In this case, with the Impala, the driver spotted them!

Back to the hunt. We do a quick stalk, and the Impala herd seem aware of us but don’t scatter. “There, on the left” Hilary says. I see him in the scope, about 150 yards out, they are moving, but I don't have a good shot. They all run to the right and one buck stops at about 110 yards to give us another look, giving me a left quarter/shoulder shot. Bang! Hit! He hops a few yards and falls over dead. I hit him on the left shoulder. The .270 Barnes 3X doing devastating damage. The cameras come out again. Eight animals in eight days! Even though I missed a few shots, I did harvest five animals with one shot.

This is the .270 Barnes Triple Shock at 110 yards with a muzzle velocity of 2800 fps. Perfect!

The hunt is over but I'm so grateful! Hilary Daffi (the PH) and crew were amazing. World class for sure, worth every penny and then some. They worked their tails off the first day, they worked their tails off the last day. Especially, when things looked slightly bleak, they held steady. Nathan Askew and crew set up a flawless hunt. I highly recommend Bullet Safaris!
I agree with all you said about Bullet Safaris. I was in this same camp last Sept. with Hilary as my P.H. They treated my daughter and I great. I also took two buff, both over 40 inches. Camp staff was also very good. Love hunting buff!

Congrats on a couple of great buffalo. Not many people have done it like that. Love the Zebra too. Nice trophies. Thanks for sharing your hunt with us.

That was a great read, thanks for sharing!

I guess when out in the field, things don't always go according to plan. Shots can be badly placed or miss completely, that's just the way things are. We're human, it happens. Those little snippets of frustration make the story even better. You had some snags but you worked through them and got it sorted in the end. Well done!

Loved your recap. Made it sound like we were sitting down with a couple of beers and you were recounting your adventure. Great trophies. Two super buffs. Congrats!

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
