I actually just watched that video a little bit ago and thought, how crazy is it that I want to go poke one with a sharp pointed stick???

Time has slowed to a crawl these last few days and doesnít help getting new pictures from scouting trips on different places. Iím chomping at the bit to get over there!

On a side note, I keep getting asked what else Iím going after while Iím over there, and honestly I hadnít really thought much about anything other than buffalo. Even my wife keeps asking why Iím go by to be gone so long if buffalo is all Iím really wanting to chase. Lammie had mentioned a month or so back about chasing bush pigs again which sparked my interest since they stood me up the last go around. Well, heís got a couple different bait stations rolling and both getting hit by pigs. Hoping they keep hammering away!

Those bush pigs (and maybe warthogs) strike me as the inspiration for the alien hunter in the original movie "Predator." U-G-L-Y

Although it looks like a bomb went off, it was just me and my last minute procrastination packing. Got everything loaded and checked off the list, checked my weight and I was over 10 pounds.... so, the rearranging and unpacking began and finally got it all situated and below weight. Iíve over packed every time Iíve been to Africa before, so I figure I might as well do it again this go around.





Thankfully I had a lil helper to get me all sorted and packed up. Leave out tonight, layover a few hours in London, then onto South Africa from there.

Truly canít believe the time is finally here. Lift off in ten minutes for a trip that started planning literally two years ago nearly to the date. My last trip, my wife stayed behind and it was tough to leave. This time around, it was unbelievably hard to leave home because of her and my lil running buddy. Iíll be honest, I didnít shed any tears when I had to go, but I was on the verge of it and Iím not a crying person at all. Canít wait to tell him about the adventure ahead.

They are buddies for sure. We have to all load up on the ranger and go feed the fish every evening.



Hanging out in a lounge at the airport in London watching the clock tick tock on by waiting on flight to Joberg to head out in a couple hours. Still canít decide if going this route vs the non stop delta flight thru Atlanta is better. Will say it sure was nice to get off that plane and take a shower! Amazing what a clean pair of drawers and socks will do for a fella!

If I ever go back that's the way I'm doing it. 16 hours sitting in 1 spot was almost more than I could stand. A place to stretch your legs and as you mentioned a shower and clean drawers and socks can make a man new again...
Green with jealousy but I hope you have the best time ever.

ps. That's one heck of a woman you got there to be that supportive. You should reward her with something she wouldn't buy for herself.

The thing that keeps me on the nonstop flight is the fact that every stop is another place for luggage to get lost! I dread that every time I check my bow for a hunt!

Brandon, you got it there. Very blessed to have a wonderful wife that lets me chase after my crazy dreams. Iím sure Iíll have to find a hunt for her this fall to repay here though!



Made it and on the road. Baggage arrived safely (took longer than Iíd have liked it to coming off the carousel). We have a 1 1/2 drive to meet lammie, then on the road another hour or so to the first camp.
Flight last night was nice in that I had a seat with tons of legroom (got a bulkhead seat) but still didnít sleep too much. Glad to be on the ground and see something besides the inside of a dang plane! Those things make it feel like time is standing still!

Plans today to grab lunch before getting to camp, hang out and shoot for a bit then hunt this evening. Will keep yíall posted

Service is horrible at this location so no live updates unfortunately. Made it to camp around 12:30 or so yesterday. Shot the bow a bit, changed clothes and went for a drive in the truck to see the place. Got into blind around 3:00 and had buffalo come in not long after. Had a target bull well in range but was never able to get a good shot on him. They spooked a couple times and finally left out on the third trip.
Back at it this morning and hopefully they play well today.

Several close calls today but never any shots fired. Buffalo came, went, came again on and off all afternoon. Every time a shooter bull would come into range, either it would not have a good angle (nearly always quartering to us) or when it did get broadside, other buffalo would be in front of them. Once, a bull was at 14 yards facing us for over 30 minutes, then turned straight around, walked 50 or so yards and bedded down in the shade.....
Tomorrow is a new day and after seeing them a few times and watching how they are, we are hopeful tomorrow it will happen. Definitely ready and getting itchy to let an arrow fly.

Today was a bust. Finally got the buffs around 3:30 or so, but wind was very bad. We had our African ozonics on (buffalo poop burning in a tin can) but even with that, they still didnít go for it. Came and went twice, and the second time they sounded like D9 dozers crashing thru the bush leaving out. Nuts how loud a herd of buffalo are when they leave an area in a hurry. Winds are supposed to be much better tomorrow so hopefully it will work out.
Did see several critters driving around while we were looking for buff this evening.
