Well done, thank you for such a detailed report and all the pictures!

Great trophies from Zambia and Vic Falls brings back memories from last year!

Thanks for the comment!

Yes there are waterbuck there, both common and defassa. We saw waterbuck every day while hunting and had multiple opportunities at them if we were after them.

The Falls were great! We went to the national park and walked all the trails, went to the Livingston Museum, curio shopping, sunset cruise... all recommended!

Thank you for the response. when I read you reply I laughed, waterbuck is most definitely on my list and I guess my mind wasnt working.
My other target animal is nayala and I havent seen them on any outfitters sights? do you know if they are not in this region?

Day 1...

Since we got into camp about 10 pm and to sleep about midnight the previous night, we "sleep in" till about 6:30/7:00. Up for a nice breakfast of eggs and real American style bacon. Certainly wasn't expecting that this far out here! Its a overcast morning, Strang says its rained a little bit each of the last two days and looks like we could get some today. The temp is very pleasant, high 50's or so, but would warn up to the 70's or low 80's once the sun came out later. The camp is right on the Luangwa river, beautiful setting. Here are a few pics of the river view day 1 and some of camp. The first few pics are the view from the eating area!

That looks very familiar, is that Chikwa?

My apologies if I missed it, but what is Strang's operation called? After reading a great report like this, I would like to learn more about it!

Strang is in a partnership with Balla-Balla Safaris, but he also operates on his own. He has access to multiple places all over the country.

No (native) nyala in Zambia.

Firstly, congratulations on a very successful hunt, an the way you shot in particular. Filling your ream list is icing on the cake.
As other have written, your writings (report seems insufficient, somehow...) have stirred my memories, and my heart.
Finally, I pray that Strang can overcome his malarial issues. Again, my deepest appreciation.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

im happy to do these deals for 2021

i will knock off 10% off each deal if you take 2 so $18000 per package

look forward to your response

regards
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
