An extract from the diary of Ridge LeBraaten(16) – Wednesday, 8 April 2020
“We started off this morning by looking for a monster Kudu bull. After glassing from a number of lookouts we returned to our first spot of the morning as we had left our tracker, Jimmy, to keep an eye on the valley below. At mid-morning we heard from Jimmy on the radio. He had spotted a big bull and was keeping an eye on it. We headed over in the direction of where Jimmy was positioned high up on a ledge and right away saw the bulls massive horns dip into the thick brush below. After a short discussion we all agreed that this was a seriously big bull and one worth setting up on and waiting him out. From time to time we spotted a horn here and there but the undergrowth was very dense limiting our opportunities. The bull was slowly feeding into the wind as we patiently waited him out. At 575 yards the bull suddenly appeared into a tight opening as I settled my cross hairs on his shoulder. With the bull clearly not comfortable out in the open and about to disappear into the brush again, Stix yelled out to gain his attention. The bull immediately threw up its head, looked at us and paused for a brief second as I squeezed off the shot….”
That’s just a small taste of what Jon and Ridge experienced when they joined PH, Ross “Stix” Hoole, and tracker, Jimmy, in pursuit of Sable, Roan, Impala, Waterbuck, Eland and Kudu. The action was fast and furious with breath-taking scenery and endless long range opportunities. All the action. All the shots. Exciting moments and much more… It’s Long Range Smokers Part 1…
