Getting a little tuff now we are hunting just hunting one or two different kind of animals. I'm trying to get a zebra and Crit a gemsbok. I shot a kill Impala today and Crit had a giant worthog get away.

Danny could of shot both. Looking for a Zebra. No luck to day. 2 days left.

From: Chief 419
25-Jul-17
This looks like the trip of a lifetime in the making. Shoot until you run out of arrows. You can worry about the money when you get home. Take whatever Africa gives you. If you don't get a zebra this trip, you can always go back :)

25-Jul-17
Got ya! Good luck!

From: Forest bows
27-Jul-17
Having trouble posting pictures. We have had great luck last couple of days and everything we have shot is Big! Rowland Ward is the standard over here I think. Some of you guys will know but the guide tells me everything we are talking makes it. I'm going to enter them out of respect.

Nice job forest. You had a hell of a hunt. Thank you for sharing your trip. If you're not already please consider doing a pedestal mount on your zebra. Use the back skins as in lays in your panels. This is my favorite now out of all of my mounts. Hunting and nonhunting friends always comment on the zebra. There is nothing more that says south Africa like a zebra Pedestal mount.

From: Forest bows
29-Jul-17
We shot Hoyt carbon defiant with FMJ. Started with muzzy 4 blade COC they failed bad....... The PH had a dozen slick tricks Magnum. The we're awesome. Will start to use them for sure. Most shots were 20-23 yards. I shot my Kudu at 30 wildebeest at 40 rest was under 25. All animals went down in 100 yards or less except the 2 we lost. Christian worthog and my first Impala got away. I aimed low anticipating the Impala to duck.......I hit dead center of the leg 2" low......

From: Buffalo1
30-Jul-17
Thanks for the feedback on the equipment setup.

And now the fun part starts, how to have animals taxi done and where to put them. A great challenge to be facing.

I agree with the pedestal mount of the zebra and also consider a pedestal for the kudus. They really look regal on a pedestal.

Congrats again !!
