John's 39 inch buff shot with 300gr .375 soft nose bullets, after three and a half hard day's hunting in over 40c heat. One of eleven Dagha boys, in the Save (pronounced Sarvey) Conservancy. Our concession was 45,000 acres of the total of 750,000 acres. The big 5, including white and black rhino, which are guarded by numerous game scouts who are living in the bush and are frankly a safety hazard, were all around adding to the authenticity of the hunt. Lions emptied the skinning shed bin at our permanent tented camp one night !
One of my 4 eland bulls after negotiating around one of the many trees that the elephant had pushed over blocking the roads !
One of my 5 zebra.
One of my 7 impala in front of a baobab tree which had leopard claw marks on the back where he took his prey up into for safe keeping from hyena and lion.
The total bag for our 12 day hunt was 1 Cape Buffalo, 20 Impala rams, ten Burchell's zebra, 9 Livingstone eland, 7 Blue wildebeest, and 1 baboon plus a few helmeted guinea fowl and natal francolin for the trackers suppers.
The EU have banned all tempory export permits of sporting firearms even going (by Kenya Airways) via Nairobi so we had to use our PH's weapons - .375 H&H, full stock 30.06, .223 and backed up with PH Paul's 416 Rigby.
