Zimbabwe hunt with CMS
I just returned from a fantastic 2 week hunt with Myles McCallum with CMS.
I am back almost 2 weeks so I am finally caught up at work.
The hunt was from June 20th to July 2 with one extra day dedicated to some fishing.
We started in Karunga then moved to Matombo and finished in Nyakasanga.
My wish list included Hippo, Croc, Buffalo and Hyena..
And Myles managed to drag me into position to collect them all.
All three camps were great and the camp and hunting staff were all of the highest caliber.(.585)
We also managed to squeeze in a visit to Gonono to visit a school that I am helping to support; Buzz and Myles were instrumental in helping my foundation get new desks for all the teachers and students.
Most members of AR are familiar with CMS they have an excellent reputation that is well deserved. So please allow me to add my review that CMS is a quality group in every facet of the hunt.

Congrats Dave! Matombo is one of my favorite camps. CMS is a class act.

Awesome trophies Dave, especially the Spotted Hyena. That’s a gorgeous stock on your rifle too.

Very nice Dave.

We struck out on the Hyena. Some fine animals you got there.

I have shot a few hyenas but they don't really turn my crank. The croc on the other hand...

Buff looks great.

Hi Dave

A huge thanks for coming out with us and an even bigger thanks for your Dads trust in southing out the school desks. I cant tell you what a difference it has made to all the kids there!!

Well done on some great trophies- The buff is a beauty! I am glad we managed to share camp for a day or two and catch up after so many years!! Looking forward to having you and your son back for a buff!

ps that is a great Tiger- Myles could not have been with you that day as he is the most hopeless fisherman!!!

Sounds like lots of fun. Thanks for the report, good to see these write ups coming in. I check each day to see if a new report has come in. It keeps my dream alive until I can live it out.

Well done. Great areas and great outfitter. Looks like they have an upgraded boat!

Already I was beginning to fall into the African way of thinking: That if
you properly respect what you are after, and shoot it cleanly and on
the animal's terrain, if you imprison in your mind all the wonder of the
day from sky to smell to breeze to flowers—then you have not merely
killed an animal. You have lent immortality to a beast you have killed
because you loved him and wanted him forever so that you could always
recapture the day - Robert Ruark
