Where the hunt really started!

After the caracal was loaded, we were back off to camp to finish a light breakfast then go to the range to shoot the camp rifles as ours had not arrived with us in Africa. Now I’m not going to lie and say I remember the exact calibers these camp rifles were, but I believe the one I ended up shooting was a 270.  We settled in at the range and after everyone was confident in the rifles off, we went on our first day of Hunting in the eastern cape of South Africa.

I’ll attest to this having used camp rifles. Most camps have good accurate rifles sure they might not be your custom rifles with all the bells and whistles, but they get the job done. If you know how to shoot and work a rifle using a camp gun will be no problem for you. I used this camp rifle the entire trip even after our guns showed up because I was shooting it well and was having great success with it.


Checking the camp rifles

We first set out in search of blesbok, several of us in the group were wanting a blesbok and near the camp there was a couple properties that had hundreds of blesbok. So this is where the hunt really started.
