That was a great report. Loved the pictures as well. I hope your foot healed up well. Limpopo is a great place to hunt. I had a great time there as well.

Great hunt with super pictures and a great read. We hunted in Namibia 11 years ago, and are hunting South Africa next year. We will be in the Limpopo region close to Botswana. Your story and pictures have really amped me up for my hunt. I still haven't decided on what I will use. Between my 50th anniversary #1 in 4570, my Contender in 375 Win, and my 44 mag Super Redhawk. Congrats on some fine trophies.

Thanks for the information on the grips. I will echo another poster. How is your foot? Those pictures showed a cause to pause!
