    A little more about my self to other members, I am a cattle farmer in the North West province of South-Africa , we do have alot of game on our farms , and it is not game fenced, so everithing is free roaming.We do hunt alott and by we I mean myself and my two sons aged 13 and 14.I see that you ask about calibers and rifles used so follows
    1.22 lr pre war Mauser
    2. 222 Remington Sako
    3. 25-06 remington custom
    4. 6.5x55 se custum

    We run extensive cattle breeding setup and try to market as certified grass fed beef , as i believe that is the best meat in that you can buy.

    Howzit Willem,

    Welcome to the site from a fellow South African.

    Originally from Durban but have been living in the UK for over 9 years now. I used to (and still do when back in SA on holiday) hunt all over SA and miss the wide open spaces and the beers round the fire while the potjie cooks away.

    You'll find the chaps on the site very friendly and helpful.

    hi Willem,

    I don't think I will be trying to take over your farm any day soon...particularly with the arsenal you have!

    Oh.. and I take it you and your sons know how to use them as well!!

    On a more serious note...welcome to SD.

    I have hunted RSA (Limpopo province) and Namibia and I believe every hunter should, at least once ,experience hunting in your wonderful country.

    What plains game species do you have free roaming on your property?

    and which countries do you sell your beef too?

    cheers

    Hallo 50/50,thank you for the welcome,I hope that you had pleasant hunts in RSA and Namibia,I have hunted quite a few times in Namibia and it was allways nice.
    We have kudu,blesbuck,mountain reedbuck,springbuck,warthog,duiker and steenbuck,the warthog can be areal pest in maize lands and are shot as vermin .If you look in Rowland ward you will see a 24" warthog with owner Chris Kruger ,he is my brother in law and that is the world record warthog ,it came from our farm.

    All beef exports from South africa has been cancelled after a foot and mouth outbreak on the Mozambique border,the vet dept. did not maitain the border fence and now the farmers have to foot the bill.The biggest feedlot in SA is under quarintine after it came to light that some of the animals came from northern natal were the outbrake was.

    I dont know how long this wil last but probably for a few months.Bad for farming and hunting.
    Cheers
    Willem
