I saw waterbuck at 17 yards yesterday about sunset.

6 pt WT at last light.

Three gemsbok this morning. No pic. Too foggy. And another waterbuck just now.


21 hunters and only one pig shoot yesterday. Waiting for the front to hit by noon today.

Got drawn there several years ago and a great time hunting wild, I mean wild deer! Those hunt coordinators were great to hang out will.

For the record, unless it's changed MWA is very stand by hunter friendly. When I hunted, all stand bys were taken, and when I called a few weeks prior about accommodations, they begged me to come stand by ahead of my hunt.

The next week they were doing a youth hunt and they told all of us to bring our kids, and anyone on stand by with kiddos was going to hunt. Great place! Good luck! Following!

Used to put in for that place every year and have been on 3 archery hunts there. I killed nice 10 points every year. The last few years they only have 5 point or less hunts and I'm not driving that far for that. Good luck, it's a fun place.

Well last 10 min turned out pretty exciting. Saw a hog at 200+ yards. Was debating shooting it with so close to last light when I saw an axis doe. Was looking at it when saw two WT bucks and an axis buck come in about 160 yds. One was an 8 and the other was pretty sure it was a 4. Problem was with lower light and distance I couldnít be 100% certain. He tried to come closer following corn but the axis buck kept chasing him away. Got too dark to shoot and then 3 more WT bucks came in from other direction. Was was large but couldnít count points. Only pic was a blurry shot of axis thru the binos. Looks promising for tomorrow. Son and FIL both had deer after last light.

A great place to hunt AND stay. Been on 2 hunts there, both exceptional. The last one was very different in that it rained every day, all day but saw tons of animals. Both were gun hunts.

Would love to go on a bow hunt there.
