Members here follows the write up of the recent 1884 Era Black powder hunt at Weltevreden farm. We managed to add another aspect to our hunt, using donkeys to collect the game we shoot and collecting fire wood . Traditional bow shooting, arrows making and flint knapping was another aspect we add to this years 1884 Era Black powder hunt. Hansie Minnaar ( Stewart core bonded bullets /drawn brass ) brought two donkeys . Hansie Minnaar made the harnasse himself for every donkey, enable them to pull a sledge. Hansie and Morgan build another sledge since the one Willie Barnard build was meant for the oxen. Only a mother can love this face:http://www.**MENTIONING**LINKING**TO**FORUMS**NOT**PERMITTED**.co.za/forums/images/smilies/happy0194.gif This year more original tents were part of the camp site..we really endeavor to lessen the plastic pollution of the new era...this is one aspect we need to focus on since it really marred some lovely photos. Greg`s Bell tent: Johan Greyling brought a real gem , this is an original tent used in the Boer war. Wallace, Cleve Cheney and his son Hunt used this type of bokseil tent: My new sleeping set up work beautifully ..I really slept like a baby without getting cold through out the week... Greg used this canvas tent: Herman Nel and Brand Bienedell use the Kakebeen ox wagon to sleep in.
