Here are a few more photos (Iphone quality) from our trip through Botswana and Namibia on our way to the Zambezi. The animal road crossings are in Chobe National Park. They close the park at dark which would make sense after looking at the photos....

I was using about 4-6" of #2 or 3 stainless wire. It worked perfectly. I was using a 30lb. butt section of leader with with a 20lb. tippet.

Dan and Lisa warm,yet chilly hallo from africa.Was great to have you guys here on a Tiger Fishing Safari.Thanks for the kind words we appreciate it.
It is always great fun to have you guys with us.Hope to see you again soon to improve that personal best.

Kobus is one of our most senior and requested PHs at Limcroma. Although he is no longer hunting full-time, he is still doing a handful of selected safaris each season with us. I know he will be very successful in his new endeavor, and I'm am sure anyone fishing with him will receive first-class treatment!

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
