Well done! Interesting note on your boots. I made that same mistake with merrells. A soft sole is critical for stalking. I’ve made the switch to Russell’s. My wife uses Courtney’s.

When( not if ) I go back I’ll go the Courtney or Russell route myself

Thank you! That bull was definitely what I was looking for on my first hunt for them!

Congrats on a great buffalo, your story and pictures brought back some great memories of my hunt in Zambia. Have really enjoyed reading your hunt report.

There is one light hiker I’ve found with a softer, more flexible sole. It’s the Merrell Chameleon. I use them around the farm and will take them as backup to my Russell’s this year. We are hunting for a full month so changing up shoes will likely be necessary.

Those look nice! I’ve got that page bookmarked now so I can go back and order a pair!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
