Flight time is nearly here. I was lucky enough to get an invite from an old friend to visit him for my retirement gift. I'm going to get to hunt for 9 days with my oldest son while he hunts sable, eland, bushbuck and what ever else we run into and them another dozen days just playing things by ear with old friends.

I hope to finally get a caracal and civet. No stress, relaxing 3 weeks in my favorite place

Good luck on caracal. I have always wanted one. Was usually out of quota or wasn't plentiful. Used an American audio predator electronic call before. Called in EVERYTHING except caracal. Cool watching leopard sniff around the speaker. Civet are nice too. I took several Genet with a .22 Hornet. Its quite often the little things that make safari so memorable. Shoot a few boxes of #6 12ga. at sunset around a waterhole for sand grouse is one to remember.

I'll be spending the majority of my time in the Limpopo region near Ellisras but intend to do some traveling. I do intend to take a varmint call and will try to take any varmint that is legal.

Thanks for the good wishes.

9 Days with my favorite hunting partner in my favorite place to hunt is going to be a lot of fun for sure.
