Congratulations on the species you were able to take, Oscar.
I really liked your openness on this hunt about how things don't always go as planned. But, you adjust your plan and move forward.
We all watch the hunting shows and get lulled into believing everyone always gets the animals they are after with a perfect shot and short recovery.
Your willingness to lay it out there, as it happened, is appreciated.
Well done and travel safe getting back home!

We are repacking gear to drive thru some river forest areas after Chobe Bushbuck, the 60" monster Kudu I saw on day 5, and even possibly a tuskless . Tonight we may do an all nighter for the hyena if the wind gives us a break.....or two!!!

With the highs and lows of this hunt I know your gonna be exhausted when you get home!
Good luck on the rest of your adventure! I'm sorry to read about Bayou, I know it can be tough..something that helped me out some with that same loss was something I read.-
"Don't cry because it's over..Smile because it happened." Dr. Seuss oddly enough.
I have enjoyed the live hunt. Thanks for sharing!

Congrats! I know and appreciate all of those highs and lows. And that includes both the hunt and the hound. I’m hoping to hunt Zambia in the future. Sounds like one hell of an adventure!!!!!!

To the TBHers that asked about the village assistance I will respond when I get some time.......it's horribly complicated!!! Head home and pack for Nashville. My girls already there and moved into new condo. Jeep showed up per the delivery time.

Nice trip Oscar. My daughter and I are supposed to be in Lusaka right now on a mission trip. It got postponed due to the rise in COVID cases over there. Hopefully things will get better soon over there.
