Last Hunt of 2017

Dec 21, 2017 | Hunting Reports | 0 comments

It was a successful one day hunt with Mark and Todd and even though it was a one day hunt it ended up with us making some great new friends along the way.

We had the privilege of hunting with Mark and Todd for one day looking for Zebra and Red Hartebeest. We headed to our one Coastal Concession and the search was on. After passing quite a few groups of Zebra we selected one and the hunt was on. Mark made a great shot and the Zebra was down.

The Red Hartebeest we hunted on a neighbouring property as there are large groups found on that property so with limited time we were more guaranteed to get one there. After a few stalks and walks we saw some Red Hartebeest and made our way to them. They were in a great stalking position however there were many eyes around as well which called for us to leopard crawl the last 10 to 15m to get into position.

The Bull we wanted was quartering away and Mark was comfortable and ready to shoot. Mark placed a great shot placement and the bull ran off. We found him about 40m away lying hidden in a clump of bushes.

With the light starting to go down we took a last drive and a walk hoping we could bump into a warthog or two but the light had the better of us.
