Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:Only problem during hunt was self-inflicted. Wounded buffalo and spent significant time during the rest of the hunt looking for him.
Highlights of Hunt:Hunting Maasailand after rains had greened up the landscape. Seeing Maasai people while out hunting. Spending Christmas with family in hunting camp.
Equipment Recommendations:Maybe a small fan to help with afternoon naps. Temps were warm but not unbearable, high 80s. Lot's of flies and mosquitos at this time of year, so take necessary precautions.
