@NewboomerI've hunted 2x1 a few times but much prefer to go it alone 1x1. On more than one trip there were people in camp that I would not want within a mile of me with a rifle. Every night the booze flowed like water at dinner and on into the night. I couldn't see how they could hunt anything the next day.
One day the whole camp, each group of those Europeans with their respective PHs and me with my PH went springbok hunting. Several of those guys had to back to camp for more ammo before the day was over--and they still didn't score. Luckily, they were in a different area from us.
I am very leery of someone I don't know waving a rifle around behind me or messing up my shot. Then there is the know-it-all who can't keep his mouth shut for more than a minute.
There are exceptions, though. From what I read here on AH, everyone is pretty savvy, competent riflemen, good natured(?) and of similar mind. Wouldn't hesitate a second to share a hunt with most any one ( if I could keep Bob Nelson from lauding the merits of the 243 Win. Just had to get that one in there, Bob.) And any of the outfitters who advertise and sponsor. If they weren't good they wouldn't last. The bush telegraph works fast.
It would be a short discussion on the merits of the 243, but dang they make the best tomato stake you will ever find. Religion, politics, sex and the 243 are the only subjects that are taboo in my camp. We can discuss what is better bourbon or rum or anything else tho..
