Plains Game Buffet and Bunny Hugger Tour
Great report, with one exception.
What did the poor Hartebeest do to be compared to Hillary? The Hartebeest may be one of the "three uglies (others being the warthog and black wildebeest) but not as bad as Hillary!

Nicely written with great photos of the game and the hunt.

Have done many photo safaris. The best was a trip into the Okavango in dugout canoes, sleeping on islands under mosquito nets after cooking dinner. Not the usual too comfortable and too well-fed experience that you detailed so well. Not sure why it's so hard to convey the reality that "sustainable use" is the essence of modern wildlife conservation, but it's a hard message to get across...

Ross,
I could read your reports all day. No one writes better.
Sounds amazing. I hunted with Jason at Kanana in 2013.
Awesome.

Excellent report. I particularly find the discussions with anti-hunters fascinating. The first thing I ask any anti-hunter is if they are vegan. I am always amazed at the number of anti-hunters that will blast me while eating steak.

As always, great report.

I took my son with me to Namibia and we spent time in hunting camps and also went into Chobe - very similar feeling. Very strange to go from being on your own in an area to being with a group of folks. We had a drink at a hotel on the chobe river and it just did not feel like Africa to me - I think the folks that pay a fortune to sit in the luxury game reserves are missing out on what's its like to have a large area to yourself and walk (vs being in a truck with others) on the land.

With that said, I'm taking my mother and kids with me to Africa next summer and need to plan a similar itinerary......

Superb narrative with very fine pix, Ross.

Excellent observations on greens failure to grasp that sustainable use is the bedrock of modern wildlife conservation.

Hunting-religion-politics: the first is based in fact; the second in belief; the third in hope and, maybe, deception Wink .

I always look forward to your adventures and the reports and pictures that follow. I'm not a birder but enjoy seeing them on my safaris and especially in your report. Please keep them coming!

What a terrific report! A pleasure to read, glad you had such a great time...I was at Tholo a few years back and it was the experience of a lifetime. Thanks also for posting the link to this report in the Hunts Offered forum, otherwise I would have missed out on it.

Congrats on the bird list as well; a nice secondary trophy on any hunting trip.
