    I took the 38” buff in my avatar at the BVC in ‘13.
    Don’t get caught up in size. As others here have said, savor the hunt.
    I dreamed of a buff since I was 15 years old. I wanted a great hunt with a mature heavy bossed bull without broken horns that would be a good trophy. I told my PH what I was looking for. He said we could easily do that. We looked at a few bulls but on day four, found “THE ONE”.
    I hope to hunt buff again and if I do, my parameters will be the same. If it’s 36”, fine. Over 40”: great.
    20 years from now, you’re going to look up at that head on the wall and think about following the tracks, watching the trackers work, the smell of the dung, the adrenaline rush of the the sticks going up and the PH telling you: “on the shoulder”, the view of your crosshairs on the shoulder, the bull’s death bellow and walking up to that monster on the ground. Not the inches.

    Let us all know more after you get back. Sounds like a good area.

    Why should I bear this in mind? Who cares? This is an African hunting site and people will book whatever they want and I will be happy for them either way. Whether it’s an expensive trip or a cheaper trip, I want to hear about it and be happy for the hunter.

    Great thread!
    In Zimbabwe you have to go along way to beat a Matetsi Buffalo.
    We still have a few slots still open for this year in Matetsi Unit One if you would like us to quote you.
