ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Arrived in camp, had lunch, sighted in 375H&H, went to where PH had seen big Derby eland tracks that morning, followed a mile, saw two bulls, one mature with long wide horns, one very old and broomed back, awkward stalk because of Kob and warthogs in the way, chose the old one and I had my eland within 2 hours of arriving in camp. Saw Eland every day and could have shot much bigger, but not necessarily better, trophies. Lion. Saw a pride of 6, and the next night saw one with others in the long grass. Males big but not much mane. Patrick has quota but cannot import into USA. Elephant were present but not in huge numbers. A low cost hunt for the elephant specialist not concerned about size of ivory not importable to USA. Mean elephants. Western Buffalo seen every day. Small herds but I wanted a Dagga Boy. Got an outstanding scarred old bull. Western Roan seen every day. Had one of the best hunts of my life stalking a solitary old bull standing on top of a bare hill a mile away. Seemed an impossible stalk and I didn't want to shoot from long range so we got within 70m before I dropped him. Broomed, uneven, very thick horns, great trophy. Waterbuck seen several times. One very good bull but I didn't need him. Western Hartebeest seen every day. excellent trophy quality. Western Kob were abundant but the horns are not long compared with other areas. Harnessed bushbuck. Saw several females. Only one really old, uneven horned male and I had an easy shot. Warthog. Saw 2 trophy boars with tusk ends pointing towards each other but I have a soft spot for warthogs and didn't shoot. Red Flanked Duiker seen daily. Don't often stop to give an opportunity to shoot but eventually we found a dumb one. Bush Duikers seen less often than Red Flanked but we chanced upon a very nice one who cooperated. Civet we drove around in the evenings looking for them but only saw one and he departed. Olive Baboon were everywhere. the largest of the common baboons. Good trophies if you like that sort of thing. Oribi were seen several times. I had opportunities to shoot good males but didn't need one. Bohor Reedbuck were hard to find in the long grass of January. Apparently easier later in the season. Only saw one pair and they weren't hanging around. Red River Hog were common but nocturnal. Hard work walking and creeping through tangled, thorny undergrowth of river beds for days searching for where they were lying up. Having located them, next problem is identifying a boar in the gloom. Eventually the PH said "it's a male, shoot, shoot!" By then he was trotting away and I fired in haste and gut shot him. Tracked him for hours and lost him. Such is life!
