Happy days, and happy hunting.

Let us know when the PS.com safari is happening.

You are welcome at any time, but hunting season is all the months without an "R".
We can hunt all year round on most locations, but can't shoot females out of season.
For the record, I could only get a Warthog. The bush was summer thick and wet. My son got a nice Blue Wildebeest though. Shot with my other rifle, a Tikka 30-06 using a 220gr soft point. It was through and through at about 100 yds. Dropped within three paces. the 220 gr is a very nice bullet and closely mimics the ballistics of the .375 H&H up to 300 yds.

Congrats to you both! Does that critter in the picture taste better than it looks?

They are ugly buggers, but the meat is good. I only make Biltong (our version of jerky) and dried sausage from my game meat. The Black Wildebeest is even uglier, if thats possible. I shot one last season. Their meat is also good, but there is not much of it. All hair and bones.
