Only recovered 1 bullet, the Swift A-frame. Not damaged that much. The solids which were Woodleigh's hydrostatic must have gone through and through. Or someone got a surprise with dinner.

Another good report for Wayne. On the matter of the Nyala I have a Kudu on the wall that I found dead in the bush and it was such a fine specimen it seemed a shame to waste it – well that is what I told the missus anyway.

This report i going to have to be short and sweet as I'm very busy with honey do's and wanted to get this out before it was to old and this is the first time posting a hunting report. Having caught the African hunting bug last year with a plains game hunt I decided to once again return to Zimbabwe this year with a dangerous game hunt for Buffalo. The hunt was once again booked with Wayne Van den Burgh with @Nyamazana Safaris August 1st through the 15th. Wayne is one of the nicest guys you can meet and in my opinion is very trust worthy.
The hunt occurred near Beitbridge in the Mwenezi area some of the thorniest hunting areas I have ever hunted. Using a Lawn and Alder 450-400 3 1/4" NE we had to get fairly close as the Buffalo in this area were not cooperating and would run off when we would get near. I must say that Wayne was also using a 450-400 3 1/4" NE to back me up. After 5 days of trying to walk softly through the bush we finally connected with a nice specimen. I shot twice and Wayne once. The Bull ran about 20yds collapsed and did the death growl I have herd so much about. After the Bull was recovered and on the way back to camp a very nice Nyala just happened to present its self. Everyone was telling me to SHOOT as it was a very nice bull, so I did. I just don't know what I'm going to tell my wife next year when the crate comes. View attachment 200194View attachment 200195

Congratulations on some really nice trophies.

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
