Thank you, Mike. It was an honor to hunt and spend time with you. As soon as I got home, I picked up Tonic Water and some Bombay Sapphire. The hunt was extraordinary.Thank you for the really great report....it was a pleasure having you come and spend time with us...and thank you for persisting and finally actually getting here after all the ups and downs with flights etc...was a big shame you couldn't have a few days more relaxed with more fishing. ...but with a little bit of luck we managed to get everything in the 5 days ....at least you got to visit the gunshop I use we are looking forward to your return some time in the future...possibly with a trip to kingfisher so you can try for tiger fish...thank you again...and Mani we have converted him to gin and tonics
Dang it- what a trip.
Yeah Mike and his lovely bride tried to get me drunk enough to commit to a trip in Dallas two years back but luckily I was already aware of his alcohol tolerance and was able to slip off before I damaged a kidney. Maybe one day I'll get there.
Thank you. I'll give that a try.I really enjoyed reading your report and looking at your photos. I haven’t hunted Zambia since 2006, but I really enjoyed it and still remember what a neat place it was.
I’m glad to see another hunter who appreciates the 4 stable sticks. I won’t go anywhere without them anymore either. When I read your story on warthog, you mentioned about having to pick up the entire sticks to reposition. Possibly give this a try, I hunt a lot with them at home for ground hogs. I’ve gotten very good at shooting them when they stop running just before the tree line on edge of field. I don’t hold the front of the rifle, I hold both front sticks and sling, this lets me pivot on one point for major adjustments and set it back down instead of repositioning the entire sticks.
That's a great idea. I'll go for a Waterbuck and a Warthog and you chase everything else.@Vanguard2279 @spike.t You guys look you you had an amazing time. I love the write up its like I was with you bro. Every animal taken is an amazing specimen and I must say you have some fine sable for the wall now. Its good that you have now found G+T's. Dont forget there is a wide range of gins out there to have. Between me and Mike we MIGHT just turn you semi British.
Im yet to take a Sable but having seen and read what I just have I think its safe to say I will be hunting Sable with @spike.t and I sure hope @Vanguard2279 comes along for the ride.
By the sounds and looks of it the ongoing buggery that covid had unleashed was all worth the pain.
A super report brother
