    My second hunt took me to Matetsi with a very good friend who has hunted with me for 10 years, after some hard hunting we took an really amazing old free range lion.

    What are you using for bait in Matetsi? Is it mostly buffalo? Best of luck on your next hunts.

    Congratulations to you both.
