@Vanguard2279 @spike.t this hunt looks amazing and I hope I get the chance to do something similar one day. Those sable are gorgeous! Also I have wanted a puku since I first saw one. Will have to add it to the bucket list great report felt like I was there.

The age and quality of the trophy's speak for themselves....you will have to look far and wide find Sable with those measurements and that amount of secondary growth add to that the ability to hunt some very unique species of top quality....a testimony to very sound wildlife management practices made possible by sustainable hunting...add to that the experience of hunting in a truly wild part of Africa...

What more could one ask for? Priceless....

I sincerely hope this can be sustained well into the future, with all the challenges these operations have to face...I am not sure everybody always understand the amount of work and money it takes to run a operation like this.

Well done Mike and team, keep it up.

@Vanguard2279 thanks for the wonderful report! Despite the COVID hassles, it sounds like you had a wonderful hunt at @spike.t place, took some awesome animals and lived to tell about it. Both Sables were stunning!

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
