One of my nephews just got back from his second photo safari to Africa. Thought you might like a couple photo's he took. Just the tip of the iceberg. The first trip he came back with something like 12,000+- photo's.
Now that is what I call a memory card or two or three. I hope that it wasn't film or he would of spent a small fortune on getting them developed.
I'll let the cat out of the bag here but I was invited on a hunt in South Africa next year and hope to see a few cats. I don't know if there are any in the area that we will be but it is going to be fun.
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
