Dear Hunting Friends

As the hunting season moves on I am happy to report to you all about more early season success both in our new Matebele Land Matetsi concession and also at Gonarezhou.

We recently welcomed Lithuanian hunters back on their second hunt with Take Aim Safaris this time at our new concession in Matetsi Zimbabwe. The hunters managed to shoot a big bag of trophies including an Elephant bull in the 35 pound range, a Hippo, a Crocodile, a Kudu bull, a Waterbuck bull, a Civet Cat and other Plains Game.

Here are some pictures from that hunt:

Yesterday the 9th May I returned from the Gonarezhou in the Southern Lowveld of  Zimbabwe where we have a Russian client hunting for a trophy elephant bull, he had booked a 15 day hunt to increase his chances of shooting a 70 pounder plus (tusk weight) Elephant bull, there was great movement all around our concession and the client was lucky enough to get this 78 pounder on the second morning of his hunt, this bull was in big group of bulls it was hard see how many there were in the herd my estimate was around 12 bulls the ones we could see all had good ivory, the client had also shot a Hippo bull by the time I left camp on the 7th May his last hunting day will be the 14th May.

Elephant hunting especially for a trophy bull is not always easy sometimes hunters don’t see/won’t shoot an elephant, the higher the tusk weight expectation the client has the harder the hunt will be. This time it all worked perfectly.
