We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

Friday we spent most of the day chasing impalas around as well as warthogs, although the impala proved to be too much for my daughter, we did get another cull warthog.  We had some serious excitement this afternoon as my daughter and I were walking through a meadow and I saw out of the corner of my eye a very large cape buffalo bull.  He stood up to get a better look at us less than 30 yards away.  We quickly changed direction to try and put some distance between us without wanting to provoke him to a charge.  Thankfully he didnít as he had several buddies with him.  Needless to say it took a little while for the adrenaline to wear off from that close encounter.  I will say that being that close to a mature cape buffalo bull with nowhere to escape was quite the experience.  After that experience my daughter was quite nervous of getting too far away from the truck. 

We also found a tortious this afternoon and spent a little time inspecting him up close, judging by his hissing he wasnít too happy to have us close by.  Definitely a fond memory from our time in the bush though.

The final morning of the hunt I was able to find this impala ram which we had been hunting for a couple of days.  A great end to a great trip.

Did you get to eat any of the meat off of them. I've always wanted to try African game but never having been i haven't had the chance.

What of the animals do you get to keep? A couple of tanned hides would be awesome.
