I had another great hunt with CMS! Back in January at DSC I booked a 14 day buff/sable hunt with Alan Shearing as the PH.

We were hunting Dande East, and, despite a huge fire which came in from Mozambique, we had all the animals on my list in seven days.

We ended up going to Dande North and doing some tiger fishing and spending one night in the Motambo camp. I was fortunate enough to catch a 12 pound tiger on our last evening of fishing.

It was a great trip and I am looking forward to going back in 2020!

Well done. I know exactly where you caught that tiger! Dande East is an incredible success story.

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

Great report and superb trophies! Thanks for posting.

Fantastic! Nice buff and great to see quality kudu and sable. Alan is an excellent hunter and a super nice guy.

I hooked/caught a nice tiger (not as big as yours) on my last trip with Buzz, and it remains a highlight. Just something magical about the Zambezi....

Lee it was such a pleasure having you with us again! Allan raved about his hunt! He really enjoyed it and your company! The east really has come on a long way and with luck this year we will have another water point in the East! Thanks again Lee and look forward to having you in 2020! Cheers Buzz

Thanks to everyone! As to the location of the tiger fish, it is pretty easy to spot if you've been on that part of the river. The hill on the right side of the picture is the southern portion of the Gateway to the Gorge.

Thanks! He is a common duiker. I guess he does look kind of grysbokish in that picture though.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good place to get a tiger fish replica here in the States? I found several on Google, but don't have any experience in that area.

Thanks LHook7. tu2 I have more people ask me about the Tiger fish mount than just about anything else in the trophy room, and I've got a lot of interesting mounts! They especially love the teeth! Big Grin

Lee:

It was great to meet you at CMS. Congratulations on the animals. We were in the blind until 0200 the last night, and never got the leopard. Keith Wall (PH) and I hunted to the very end. It was a great hunt and I did have my crosshairs on 2 different leopards. One was a very mature male but I could not get a clear shot. The other was a young male so we let him go. Maybe I will see you there again in 2020. Dale

It was great to meet you, Dale. Sorry about the leopard, but I am jealous of the great crocodile you got!

Love the sable! Such beautiful antelopes!
I came back to this topic as I thought there was a picture of a bunch of hyenas and somebody had asked what was up with that. I was wondering about it as I can imagine there was a really neat story to it. I might be in the wrong topic though, but can't find it anywhere now?
