This past week saw Hugh and Juanita Friedline join us from the USA on a 10 Day Plains Game hunt. This was to be their first trip to Africa and what a trip it turned out to be.
From the word go we knew hunting was going to be tough with a full moon and some of our areas having received better rains than others. Hugh was interested in a variety of Plains Game species and Juanita joined the hunt as our camera lady and observer.
Luck came our way the very first afternoon when we bagged a Gold Medal Blesbuck. As if that wasnt a great start, a Blackbacked Jackal jumped up at the crack of Hugh’s gun,ran a few hundreds yards further and stopped,steadying himself and shooting off sticks Hugh made a 300 yard shot to bring down a weary old Jackal that had eluded us for some time now.
