Thanks for the hunt report! Beautiful pictures, stunning animals! The lion looks excellent!
Did you see many buffalo while you were there hunting?
Man what an awesome lion! That is the type of lion dreams are made of! Congrats!!!
Amazing Lion! A 21 day hunt in such a great location, are what hunting dreams are made of!
Great hunt report. The beginning of it sounds a lot like Hemingway's description of his buffalo hunt in the tall grass in "Green hills of Africa."
Great lion and HOLY Croc! Great looking trophies.
The croc was 13' 6". Big but not huge by any means.
It can be imported. The trick is getting a permit which I have applied for. Martin was great helping get all the info for USFWS requirements. Time will tell but we have a good chance.
Thanks! Key word "wild" lion!
Thanks. Martin is now a dear friend to me and we did have a good time together.
We did see quite a few and many fresh tracks. Most every other day we could have easily taken the tracks and gone after a big bull(by the tracks we saw.) I was just not after buffalo particularly. If we had gotten on a big one early in the safari I would have taken him because of the need for so much bait.
Great lion, it looks like you had a blast. I hunted the Omay in 2008 with Martin's outfit when Dalton was an apprentice. We saw 100's of Buff (my avatar is the bull I took there). Lot's of elephant also and lions were hunting the same herds of buffalo that we were. I missed a couple of bushbucks in the thick brush and the river camp was lousy with Hippo and Crocs.
Yea the hippos kept me up at night! Between hippos, frogs, birds, hyenas, and the occasional leopard it was hard to sleep at night.
Attached pic is the view from my room (no door just wide open).
Congrats again Philip, thanks for sharing the little details like the hippos, hyenas, birds, etc. calling all night! Certainly a hunt I hope to take someday!
I am looking forward to the results of this decision by USFWS. I hope that management history provided will be sufficient support.
Best of luck.
That's great! keep us posted
The water is low!!!!!!
This was looking back at that same chalet a couple of years ago from a boat. The water was very close to the chalet as compared to now.
An important key word for many.
Congratulations on your terrific 'wild' lion.
What an epic hunt. Cant wait to hunt Zim in 2018
Yes it was low for sure. Would love to see it full.
Very nice!!! Very fortunate opportunity. Enjoy every minute.
