Game Description
Major Game Animals Taken:Nyala; Bushbuck
Game Sought But Not Taken:; ; ;
Game Conditions Comments:My rating of Bushbuck as abundant is based on my experience and the knowledge gained of others who hunt with Crusader. I have not listed trophy size because I don't hunt with a tape measure. We hunted for mature animals that well represented the species.

Airline Comments:No issues with Delta or SAA regarding traveling with rifle. Normal process with SA Temporary Import Permit. For traveling on SAA between Durban and JoBerg on the return the ammunition has to be in a separate locked box that is checked on its own. Thus, make sure you are traveling with such a box. Otherwise, leave the ammunition behind after your hunt.
