Africa Safari 2012

So I just got back from hunting Africa with my dad. Originally I was supposed to take my own rifle but ended up just renting one from the PH because our paper work was rejected in Africa. All the animals we hunted were plains game animals so we took every one of them with a 3006 Springfield. We had a really good time and it was an awesome experience. My dad shot 6 Animals and I shot 2. Here are a few pictures of the trip. All in all everything was amazing excluding the 16hr flight from Atlanta. Enjoy the pictures guys...

It sure was! I recommend Numzaan Safaris for anyone who is looking into going. Tonie Du Bruyn the PH is too cool. The PH said they were hand loaded Scirocco swift A frames. The furthest was the blesbok about 250 yards. All the animals either dropped right there or ran 10 yards or so. Excluding the big Eland that ran about 100 yards but 1 shot was all it took.

Yes the warthog is my fiance's favorite Lol. We had a great time even though we just hunted plains game animals it was worth it.
