Summary Remarks
Problems of Hunt:
Highlights of Hunt:There were several highlights of this hunt. This hunt was booked to help complete my Tiny 10 collection. The Blue Duiker was an exciting hunt because of the manner in which we hunted. The hunt was conducted from a blind, which enabled you to view and choose the game. They scouted and used trail cameras to help know the time frame and specific animals that were coming in to the small man-made water holes in dense brush. Spot and stalk Red Duiker and Suni made those hunts unusual and exciting.
