Wet your African hunting appetite

Decided to wet your appetites by including some photo's of my latest hunt in the plains of South Africa. Photo shows a Rowland Ward Mountain Reedbuck taken with my 25-06, 100gr SMK's at a modest 223yds.

Long shooting is normally the course of action as can be seen from the photo showing some of the landscape. [image][/image] [image][/image]

Nice!

I'm scheduled to be in Eastern SA for 10 days in late May to early June 2007. I still haven't decided what I'm shooting in the way of critters but I figure only indigenous species for the Cathcart, Eastern Cape area. I'm sort of hoping the landscape there will be a little lumpier that in your picture.

Dave,
areas vary quite a bit from wide open space to thick bush valley's. I really worked hard for a good Eastern Cape Bushbuck but no luck. My favourite species for the area is black Wildebeest.

Did a quick measurement in the bush, which was just over 8". Rowland Ward is 6 7/8" if I remember correctly so I'm really happy. Was a long stalk, including a 35min power nap while waiting for the ram to get up and start walking around. The hunting area is Bedford, which is about 200 miles from Camdeboo.
