A few pics of plains game above from last years hunt with White Lion Safaris.
After trying last year to break the habit, I have relapsed again. Flying out May 4th to begin trip number four.
My friends, there is no treatment and no cure for this addiction we gladly endure except to DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. I just got back from # 3 and am already planning # 4 for next year.
Have 8 under my belt, had a plan last year but the country (s) sort of went south with security issues. No plans at the moment, but it surely is a thing isn't it? Nice buffalo.
Absolutely beautiful trophies!!!
Just an update and a cautionary tale, my good friend with twenty four hunts in Africa did not make twenty five. Last hunt was at age seventy, now seventy two and in a home with Alzheimers. He went downhill in one year. Don't dawdle or wait until retirement to live your dreams. Do it while your health is still good.
Best of luck and don’t forget us at AH! Please report and post pictures!
Will try to do a better job of getting a better report posted this year.
This trip will not include buffalo, only plains game. Concentrating on Sable, Roan, Nyala, Tessebee, Red Lechwe and Bushbuck this time around. A few of the smaller varieties are also a possibility. Will be hunting in the Free State & Kwazulu-Natal, with 12 hunting days.
Good luck, shoot straight. Trip number 4 in 2020.
Sounds like a nice plan to me. Which Outfitter are you going with? What rifle(s) will you be using?
Oh this sounds like lots of fun!
This will make trip #4 with Ricus de Villiers & White Lion Safaris. Really can't say enough good about Ricus and the rest of his oufit...everything has always been as agreed to.
As far as the rifle...I will again be using Ricus' Ruger M77 in .338 Win. Mag. It has not failed me in 3 previous trips and I avoid the hassle/risk of damage or theft of taking my own.
Just came in for lunch. Here are a few pics so far from this years trip. Still have one more full day. Flying out on the 19th.
Finally got the Sable this afternoon.
