Day 3 – checked springs for buffalo, got on a buffalo herd of +/-40 animals, some nice bulls but left them due to recovery. Saw another 4 sable, 1 being a nice bull. That afternoon Ron shot a warthog for the ranger for meat. We got on to 4 dagga boys, all good sizes with hard tops but the wind & ox peckers gave us away.
Day 4 – we followed a few buffalo herds but no shooters. Saw a few young kudu bulls.
Day 5 – in the morning got on to 2 dagga boys, long stalk but no shot. They gained up with another 4 bulls, another long stalk. Finally late afternoon Ron made an excellent shot and bagged an old 35.5” dagga boy.
