Well, we finally arrived back in the states! Mot say the trip was a dream come true would be a complete understatement in the fullest!! I have dreamed of hunting in Africa for
More years then I can say, and to get to go over on my honeymoon of all things and to have understanding wife who AGREED and wanted to go
(Actually brought it up first when we were talking about destinations) is truly a dream come true.
The hunting was unbelievable and the animals over there were even more unbelievable. I was told before I left, and read it many times as well, that once u go, you will want to go back and I've been planning a return in my mind days before ever leaving the place! In all, we got five animals and had a few blown or missed opportunities at others, so in saying that,
I'll call my return trip back a "business venture" because I really feel like I got some unfinished business over there!
Took tons of pictures and jotted (more like scribbles with my writing ) in my notebook and will post up all the cheers, tears, laughter and fun over the next few days once we get settled back in and I can get on a computer!
Thanks again to all who followed along. Really wish service were better available there so I could have sent more updates and pics personally and made this as close to being there as possible, but in that want to send a big thanks to Bisch for helping keep y'all updated!!


Ps for anyone who has ever thought about going over to hunt, whether it be a longshot or a close reality, DO IT!!! It truly is an unreal place and you won't be disappointed!!

Here's a few pictures from our fishing trip! We were after tiger fish, which come to find out we were not fishing the right time of year for them of course, but we were able to see A LOT of amazing critters that God put on this earth for is to enjoy! Really crazy to be fishing and have hippo not 200yards from you or a warthog come running to the water, and the best of all, getting to see RHINOS up so close! And to see all of them in their natural habitat running wild was truly amazing! It would be the equivalent of setting out on your favorite bass lake throwing a jig along the bank and all of a sudden all these critters are right there walking down the bank line lookin at you!

In hind sight, we prolly would have ditched the fishing trip since it was one less afternoon that we got to hunt and still had a couple critters we wanted, but to see to see so many amazing animals like we did and getting pictures in not only on film, but in our memories, looking back it was an afternoon well spent!

And finally, one of the most memorable sights, a female and baby rhino. The PH's son, who grew up in Africa his whole life, was with us on the fishing trip and said he'd never been that close to wild rhinos before or seen sites like that, so that really put it into perspective how great the the trip was for us!

Disclaimer: One of my bigger regrets (or mishaps) for the trip was not having my big camera with me on the fishing trip, but I didn't know what we were getting into on the boat and didn't want to risk getting it wet so these are all off my cell phone and aren't the best pictures in the world.

To say the anticipation was high in the first day would be an understatement! As soon as we pulled into the place we were going to hunt, animals were all over the place! Our main quarry the first day was going to be impala and warthogs ad we had already seen a TON of em by the time we reached our hides. Sahara would be hunting with the owner/PH's son Neil and I was going to be hunting with the main man Lammie. We were in the blinds no time and animals were already coming to water. Didn't start hunting the first day till around 9:30 or so, and it was already starting to warm up. Didn't take long (maybe 1 1/2hrs) and we got word that Sahara had already struck and the impala went down within 50yards! I was super excited for her and happy that she was able to hold her nerves back and make a great shot!

Sahara and Neil moved to another property, while I continued to hunt the same water hole until dark. Seen lots and lots of critters including impala and warthogs, but no boars came in and no impala rams would hold still long enough for me to loose an arrow!

Twisted horn nyala bull.

Right before dark my luck would change and the main critter on my bucket list for many years came over the dam of the waterhole, a zebra. First time he started to water, Lammie said I'd get one chance and if it spooked, it wouldn't be back. Just my luck, as I knocked an arrow in the fashion I always do, no more than three quills on my feathers brushed against my string, and my dream animal picked up his head and walked away into the thorn brush.. I was heartbroken. About 20 minutes passed and the zebra, unbelievably made another appearance. Lammie couldn't believe it came back and said it would only water if another animal or two came in first just to calm it's nerves a bit. As if on cue, two warthogs came to drink and the zebra followed right in. He began to drink and Lammie asked if he was close enough to shoot. I ranged him at 22 yards and without hesitation started drawing back to shoot. As soon as I let go, it felt like a good shot, but he had enough time to duck the string causing the hit to be a bit high and a touch far back for my liking. Instantly though, blood started coming out so that gave me hope. We took up the tracks, but unfortunately dark set in and we ha to back out. Lammie said he'd have the farms workers go look in the morning and acted extremely confident that they'd find him dead or alive. The sleepless night began right then. The next day around noon, we got the call they had found him, up and still on his feet. We took after him to try and get a follow up shot and finally after circling him numerous times with no luck, a 25yard shot opened up as he was slightly quartering and walking away from us and I let one fly! To say it didn't feel like a rodeo getting him down would be an understatement but finally it all came to a close and I had my zebra!

One the way to track the zebra, we dropped by to pick up the trackers that worked at the farm we were hunting. As we pulled up, I looked over and not far from their block hut stood a warthog amongst a few cattle. I pointed it out to Lammie and he holler something in Zulu to the guys then looked at me and said "grab your bow!", so being the polite guy I am, a obliged! He told me to circle around behind them and I should be able to get a shot as he'd face them by the truck. So, I eased around the side and as soon as I got the shot I picked a spot, drew back and Thwack! The pig let out a roar and took of to the brush line and fell right within sight! I remember standing there thinking "did that just happen?"! The trackers were all smiling and throwing high fives to each other and I felt like this wasn't a first for this to happen. Lammie came over and and said good shot and I asked, based off of the trackers reactions, if that had happened before. He said the warthogs will fall in with the cattle sometimes if they get some feed and they will continue to stick around as long as the feed or "treat" keeps coming, but as soon as they don't get it for a day or two, then away they go! I was glad we got there while he was still around!

Lucky for me, Lammie said he was just a freebee and I could still get a big hog if I got a shot! Well, a couple days later my opportunity arrived. A very nice boar came in and actually caught us off guard. The blind we were in was a pit blind and was hard to see certain spots unless you were looking right at them. As we set, I heard a slurping noise so I set up to see the hog drinking at about 17yards.
I had had a prior run in at this very same spot the day before in which an impala ram ducked my shot and got away with little more than a shaving scar. I wish I had the video to show as I could not have made a better shot, but the impala proved to just be a lot faster than my arrow!
Any how as the boar drank, I focused on a spot, drew back and let and arrow fly! Unfortunately, this little piggy must have had some impala blood in him as he ducked and turned into my arrow causing a hit up into the shoulder a little high of the vital zone. We found the arrow about 30yards from the shot with about 6" of arrow broke off. Very little blood was found and after watching the video only a couple times, I knew the shot was no good and the evidence we found after was just a bitter confirmation of it. Lammie said they are very tough and he felt like the pig would be fine, although a bit sore for a day or two. So, as I type this, part of the "little john" arrow is still roaming the African plains....

Just as with the impala, if you watch the shot in slow motion and put a peg on the spot where I wanted to hit, the arrow hits that exact spot. Had he stayed put, I would be showing an LDP instead of these... That's bowhunting with a stickbow I reckon!

Default It's ON! Semi-live from South Africa!

The main animal in my package was nyala. When I was little, a gentleman who lived across from my grandmother went to Africa and built a trophy room next to his house. He killed many animals on his trip, but the one I thought was the most beautiful was his nyala which he'd had a full body mount done on. Since then, I've seen several nyala mounts and they always have one thing in common, they are all beautiful critters! To get the chance to hunt them was truly a dream in the making!
We'd hunted several days and I'd seen tons of nyala bulls, but I had yet to get a mature bull to come into water or close enough to shoot. I'd seen enough of them not only hunting, but also driving in and out during the day, to have a decent idea of what was big or what wasn't. With that though, a few I'd seen I considered good were waved off as just not quite good enough when I'd asked for confirmation about my size guesstimating abilities.
One morning Sahara and I were going to be hunting together in a spot where there were a lot of blesbuck, impala, wildebeest, an nyala frequenting the water hole regularly. I felt confident in the spot and that I'd be able to pick a good nyala out if it were to come in. I was really hoping a good blesbuck would appear for Sahara to shoot at and if some of the other critters rolled by we'd just swap roles.

We had seen a ton of animals throughout the morning, but none of our target animals wanted to come in. A group of wildebeest came in, but only the calves came in to drink. I knew they were big animals but I didn't realize how big they really were.

Because the management was so tight and they are really striving to increase the size of their impala, Lammie was very particular about what was a shooter and what wasn't and went more by age than size and all of the hard work showed as he had a ton of bruiser impala rams running around.

Anyhow, having hunted the same spot a couple days before, he'd given me the go ahead to shoot a ram that would have typically been safe due to age, but was a monster of a ram, that had broken about 4" off of one side. I watched all day that day an he never came to the water hole or close enough to shoot. Before entering the blind on this set, Lammie said let's lay off the impala today and focus on nyala and blesbuck. As luck (just my luck) would have it, the ol broke horn ram came right in and stayed for an eternity giving shot after shot and wearing my patience out!!

Finally, my buddy left out to go chase some girls, and I sat on the steps of the pit blind just shaking my head. I think Sahara thought it was comical because all I could get out of her was a laugh an a smile as she knows my luck all to well. As I sat on the steps watching the impala rut activity, just like a ghost appearing out of nowhere, a big nyala, or so I thought, came strolling into view heading our way. I hoped up and grabbed my bow and set my phone up to get the shot on film. Sahara set behind me as we watched the nyala pass the waterhole, then circle back around from the other side. I remember her saying "is he big?", to which I replied "he's big enough today!". I say and watched him for a moment looking at his body language waiting for the right shot just as Lammie had talked about. Once I felt the bull was calm, I studied the vital area, picked a spot and drew back, then....

Thwack! I jumped up in time to watch the bull as he bolted away and see my arrow come flipping out the opposite side! I felt like the hit was really good and the video confirmed my thoughts. I gave Lammie the call and told him I'd shot a nice one. We decided to let him sit for 45minutes or so then go look for him. Unfortunately, we'd have to bail out a bit early as Sahara wasn't feeling well at all and wanted to get back to camp. As the picked us up, we could see my bull standing in the brush about 150yards up from the blind. After a LONG 1hr wait at camp, we headed back out and I was finally able to get my hands on a true dream animal for me...

I honestly didn't know what I had until they really went to talking about how nice he was then I knew I had done well and actually made a good call on shooting. They pulled out the tape and he measures just a hair shy of 29". Had he only been 10", I would
have still felt as though I was on top of the moon. It was just icing on the cake to an amazing adventure.

That nyala is a stud, my friend!

I guess you are going to have to butter up that taxidermist uncle of yours now, huh?

What a beast! Those horns are really cool, too. I can see why you would dream of that animal since seeing it as a kid.

I guess you are going to have to butter up that taxidermist uncle of yours now, huh?

Congrats again!

Haha, Well, I talked to a good buddy of mine who's actually went through my uncles taxidermy school and worked for him for awhile and for now he's the man! He's actually done full body mount nyala with my uncle so it wouldn't be his first time messing with one! I also backed out on the full body mount and going to go with a half body instead!

Haha! Nah, it floated in an out throughout the trip! It was nocked a few times but never took flight! Looking back, I knew I shoulda used it to shoot at a monkey!

LoL, not a jinx at all! In fact, it was the only arrow that HIT exactly were I wanted I think on the whole trip! I felt good about all of my shots, and looking back wouldn't change a thing about any of them as all my arrows flew right where I wanted them to, but the critters were just to fast for me!
