Landed in Windhoek, PH drove me to Eintracht farm, checked sight in of rifle after a few bottles of water. Then we went hunting.

Did a nine km or so long stalk through numerous oryx and red Hartebeest and took this bull at around 100 yards with my CZ 375 H&H.

Couldn't believe I had a beautiful African animal down just a few short hours after landing.

My PH Pieter Delport kept the rest of the hunt just as exciting. Just an awesome trip I couldn't have envisioned in my dreams.

Well it depends. What was my first African animal or what was my first animal in Africa? My first African animal was a gemsbok I took 20 years ago in East Texas. My first animal in Africa was a lion in the Kalahari.

My first animal was a kudu in the Eastern Cape in 2012. An animal that I’d read a story about in Outdoor Life magazine when I was 12 or so. Made the whole trip worth it, even though I shot other animals as well.

The first afternoon on my first safari in the Eastern Cape a couple of hours after arriving at camp. My number one animal on my wish list was heading for the salt. Doesn't get much better than that.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
