The Miamians.

Our old friend Robert Padron from Miami, on his third hunt at Big Water Safaris, brought his friend Grant Musser for his first African hunt. The hunt was a success and, as always when Robert is around, was a lot of fun. For some reason most of the animals were shot on high ground and there was a lot of climbing involved.

Professional hunter: Thinus Steyn.

Grant with his kudu bull. He spent more than an hour on the shooting sticks, waiting for the kudu to step out from behind a thorn bush and hoping he would do so before the light failed. In the end it worked out perfectly.
