    Me and my father just got back from our first Buffalo hunt i Zimbabwe. We hunted 7 Days in Woodland near Vic. Falls. The area has some boundery to Matetsi Unit 1. Our PH was Shepherd Katzidzira.

    I shot my firsta ever Buffalo on the third day just Before sunset after stalking the herd most of the day. I shot it on 80 m and hit it in the neck joint so it Went straight down. Gave it a few more bullets and then it was over.

    My father shot his first Buffalo on the last day. We found a herd early in the morning as we were driving out. After a 30-40 min stalk in high gras and thick bush he shot an old bull on just 17 m. Perfect ending on the trip.

    I also shot an old Impala.
