Decided last night that I needed the other Impala ewe I had on quota, at least this one came in early.
Limcroma Safaris in South Africa. I am using Evo X Arrows with 150 gr Slick Trick Crossbow heads. I will use my Stealth NXT as my primary bow and a Carbon Nitro as a B/U. I have Eland, Waterbuck, and Hartebeest on my list this time.Archer, where will you.be in September? I'm currently using Tenpoint CenterPunch arrows with Muzzy Trocar broadheads; they've worked very well for me for three years.
Thanks Colin.I wouldn't say it is exciting as much as it is stressful. What I really like is sitting in the blind from sun-up to sun-down and seeing our animals at close range. I live with these animals (impala, kudu, zebra, gemsbok, wildebeest, waterbuck, eland, and giraffes) year round, saying hello to them when I'm out driving on the property, keeping tabs on their health and numbers, making sure they get supplemental feeding and nutrients when required, etc., etc.. Then once a year we (ten owners but only I live here all year) have to kill a certain number so that we don't become overstocked. I have to make a reservation for space at my butcher, he is a fully trained German butcher and is very popular. Once I have my reservation in, I have to get everything I need for the year into the cold room in time. That is where the stress comes in.
I don't really hunt any longer, I fill a deep freeze. I get much more enjoyment out of walking with others in the bush as they hunt on foot. I've taken quite a lot of trophies in the past and now mostly fill a deep freeze, I only eat game meat that I have shot. These four Impala will give me about 150lbs of ground meat, hamburger patties, chops, loin, rib rolls, stew meat, and sausage; that's it for the year.
Have no intention of ever living in a town or back in America, I live a great life and am thankful for it.
