Gus and Kim hunt with Eastcape and Karoo Safaris in August 2019

Sunday, 18th August 2019

Gus and Kim joined us on safari all the way from Texas USA.

 

I picked Gus and Kim up at the Bloemfontein airport and we were quick to get on the road to our Karoo camp 2 hours away. Arriving at camp we quickly got unpacked and started with rifle sighting ....

With the rifle spot on we headed out to see what we could find.

First nice breakfast and coffee with sunrise.

First morning we saw plenty of animals. The amount of game on the enormous property is truly breathtaking. Gus always wanted a Red hartebees, so when I spotted a lone bulllying down on his own we put a plan together. After a long walk into the wind we managed to get above him. Gus made a great shot.

We were soon on the road again looking for a good sable bull ...we passed up several good bulls and then spotted the one !

Sundowners after a great day.

The next morning we went looking for a blesbuck. Blesbuck are very wary animals and difficult to hunt. The best chances are to take the lone rams with only 2 eyes to contend with ....
