is an ostrich dangerous game? When they do this and you are within kicking distance you better believe they are!

I found a dead rhino and we picked up the bones to use for decorations and such near the lodge. I also have a few nice sections of bone for some knife handles!

The Kudu are clearly in the peak of the rut! My wife said this is like watching kudu porn.

Docile looking just now but this was seconds before the charge. I was just hoping everyone in the truck was hanging one when I hit the accelerator. That big cow was in no mood for photos!

This is a common hornbill. Anyone who has hunted in RSA will probably have this birds call burnind into thir memory for years after they return home!

The Kudu beginning to mount the cow is a monster bull well into the 50's. My partner said he thought it might break 60" but I don't think the curls are deep enough???? Only one way to find out!

The Kudu facing the Zebra is a nice bull and certainly shootable at about 50" but we have some better then that so I would only shoot that bull on day 7 through 10. certainly not the frist couple days of the hunt.
