Follow up to this years hunt in the Eastern Cape, which remains one of my favorite places to enjoy great hunting and at an affordable price. Took 3 clients with me; two hunting, one Observer (artist). We had an exceptional 10 day hunt with the two guys taking 20 trophies between them. I hunted very hard for a specific Waterbuck (found him the last day but he eluded us..barely) and a Blue Wildebeest that we never found. He'd been seen occasionally but disappeared during my hunt. Below are some pics of the trophies I was fortunate to take: very large male Baboon, 30" (spread) Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Warthog & 30" Waterbuck. With the exception of the Baboon (which I used the .223 pushing 60 grain Nosler Partitions) I took the remainder of my trophies with the .280 using 160 gr Nosler Accubonds or 165 gr Remington Core Lokts. My clients took Kudu, Black & Blue Wildebeest, Blesbok, Springbok, Impala, Warthog, Duiker, Zebra, Gemsbok, Mt Reedbuck, Red Hartebeest, & Caracal Lynx. I did some varmint hunting and had a great run on Porcupine's and Spring Hare's. On the last day, I stayed in the bush, trying to find those two elusive bulls I had hunted all week while the guys went to Addo Elephant park. They all reeled at the size of an African Elephant...which managed to come within 5 feet of the cruiser. All in all we enjoyed another great hunt with some fine friends.
