    Hunedt at night in the Mealy fields. You walk quietly into where you hear them munching and then switch a light on. Watch them run... You'll have two seconds to get them.

    Agreed very tough hunt with dogs in the eastern cape but one of the most exciting hunts I've done

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Victory01 - Off to the Eastern Cape in June next year. After bushbuck and bushpig amongst others. I fancy trying for bushpig as they're something different. I've been told that there are no guarantees though.

    The plan will be over baits at nights, though I'm told some were seen on a property I hunted kudu on earlier this year early morning. We'll be back there after other species, so if we do witness a rare daytime sighting they may be taken then.

    I did ask about Bushpig in Zimbabwe last week. The guide said he'd never seen one! In Limpopo earlier in the year, they were telling me they bait them. I'd be interested to hear more about the dog stuff. Dd they eventually "bay" it?

    Yes they did bay it eventually goathunter1...they would circle the pig which would fight them off then run off and then get circled again and so on...my hunt lasted around 3 hours which was exhausting but exhilarating.I ended up flat on my stomach sliding through the mud under bushes to take the shot ( of course being mindful of the dogs). I tried unsuccessfully on a previous trip to take one over bait, a big pig came in one night at exactly the same time my "PH" got a text from his bird which ended that evenings outing....
