Great hunt and a very nice buffalo. Gotta love that Ruger 375. My gun of choice on my hunt and I used the same ammo combo you did. A frames are devastating. Congrats to all.

Nathan recommended the A-frames. After seeing the thickness of the Buffalo's skin I understood why one needed an exceptionally tough bullet. They really are devastating - both buffalo were pretty squarely toward me and the impact of the a-frame almost knocked them down. I never imagined that would have that effect!

Thanks for sharing the details and pictures of your trip. Nathan and his partners run a wonderful operation and I hope to hunt again with them someday.

I am curious if you saw any roan or sable while there?

We saw several groups of roan, and also saw kudu, lesser kudu, waterbuck, dik dik - and I am sure I am forgetting some other species that weren't on the 10 day license. We didn't see any sable, although I was told they are there and have good success rates when focused on them.

Well done, Tanzania is definitely on the bucket list and it sounds like Bullet is the way to go. Nice to know that someone can keep costs relatively reasonable and still deliver a quality hunt in Tanzania. It has the reputation of being very expensive.

I don't think you could go wrong with Bullet! Because of the license fee structure (that goes to the government) Tanzania will never inexpensive, but Bullet did a great job and I feel like I got a lot of value for the experience.

I thought two of those looked familiar!

Nathan, you run a first class operation and I look forward to hunting with you and Crispin again in the future!

It looks like you and your father had a wonderful time.
Like everyone else, I must say the buffalo are impressive.
However my favorite that you took is the Lichtenstein hartebeest, what a beautiful mount that will make.
Congratulations on an excellent hunt and thank you for sharing it will us.

thank you.
looking forward to catching up with you when I return to the USA, will you be at Dallas again this year?
We just finished up another good buffalo hunt with 2 more big buffalo being taken - I will post some pics soon.

our current leopard hunter has taken his leopard, sable and roan - all before day 9 (along with eland, hartebeest zebra hyena and a reedbuck).

cant wait to update everyone on the last safaris - it has been a great season!

we really appreciate you and your dad hunting with us and supporting these wilderness areas with your time and $! it takes people like yall to keep wild Africa alive and well. Thanks again!

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
