Well Done !!!

Now…. before we can give you some tips and hints, tell us all what your planing to hunt with equipment wise?

Will you be hunting from a combo of tree stand and ground/pit blinds or stalking ?

If I can give you one trip straight off… shoot any animals that give you a shot you can't pass up on over heading there with a list.

Buff, how much foam do you have in the bottom of your backquiver? Was thinking of taking my Catquiver 3 but, didn't want the weight.. So taking a page from your video thought to use a backquiver.  NINE DAYS LEFT!!!!

Study animal pictures that have the vital organs, African game are not like deer. All their vitals set farther into the chest.

To tell the truth, I have a small wash rag folded up in the bottom to keep the heads from cutting their way through the bottom.
I have found that if I add a couple of Flu Flu arrows to the mix, the big feathers seem to keep the others from rattling around.


Good luck on your great adventure
