GAME DESCRIPTION
Major Game Animals Taken: Buffalo, Cape - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size: 43 inches - rough measure.
Crocodile - Availability: Abundant - Trophy Size: 9 feet plus long.
Game Sought But Not Taken: Leopard - Availability: Leopard was an add on to the buffalo hunt as there was a tag available. As a result, we did not have enough time. I believe it is a good leopard area and that SSG is good at hunting them. And a properly focused leopard hunt - 12 to 14 days - would have a high success rate.
Kudu - Availability:
Game Condition Comments: I understand and believe that this concession is a very good area for buffalo with many 40 inch or larger bulls.


SERVICE RATINGS (excellent, good, fair or poor)
Quality of Outfit: Good Guide/PH Ability: Good
Condition of Camp: Good Condition of Equipment: Good
Quality of Food: Good Trophy Care: N/A
Name of Airline: Ethiopian Airlines Airline Service: Good
Airline Comments: They were sufficient. Every flight was late, but we did make it.

Total: $0


SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt: Both my hunting buddy and I took 40 inch plus bachelor Cape buffalo bulls.
Equipment Recommendations:
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? This is a good concession with quality buffalo and other game. Nixon and his team worked hard. All of the PHs started out as trackers, which I believe gives them an advantage over many PHs as they track also and can see game very well. I encountered no problems on the hunt. What was sold to me came true.
