Memories for a lifetime, and awesome photos!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Wednesday, we took a day off and didnít do any hunting, we did go out on a night safari and saw lots of cool animals though.   We spent the day driving to and visiting with one of the children we sponsor through World Vision.  We were able to bring her and her mother some gifts and see first hand how the money we provide in monthly support is being used in that project, cool stuff.  Although the farther interior into the country we went, the poorer the towns, it was a rewarding way to spend a day and see more of South Africa. 

Thursday morning we went and saw some bushman paintings that were nearby.  It was pretty amazing to see the rockart that had been on the side of the cave for over 2000 years.  Looking out from the cave I wondered what the hunting had been like for those prior hunters in a very different time.  Thursday afternoon brought gusty winds, which made the hunting quite a bit more difficult, even with that though, we were able to down a warthog and found some impalas, I passed on a good ram late in the afternoon as I was trying to get my daughter on her second critter before I pulled the trigger again.

That is awesome!
They will remember that trip for the rest of their lives.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
