I shot the tuskless and buff cow that is shown in these pics. I had the pleasure to hunt with chap and Pierre and meet lindon in the camp in chewore south. the group that hunted with including myself had an awesome time with some top professional hunters! They delivered big time and all 4 of us went home with a once in a lifetime experience and the trophies we wanted. I have no doubt that I will be hunting with mbalabala safaris next time I am going to africa!

You sound, and look, like you run a great outfit!

What is this creature? It looks like a super-duper raccoon

Flip - that is a serious Leopard taken at Mbalabala (second last).

And how did you get that first hyena to give the camera 'the eye'? Very well posed trophy.

Hoping you have a spare tuskless end of year:)
