    Glad you were able to hunt the Kilombero. You have some nice puku.

    How was the animal density in Kilombero?

    Was there very much human / livestock pressure?

    Congratulations on your hunt.

    Thanks a lot, Animal Density is very high, Buff you can see 300 or more in a day, some great puku and other plains game as well, in the area we hunt we dont have that human pressure but some village near by.
