The Hanson brothers , Paul and Geoff , returned to SA from Australia along with there wives Astrid and Gill for a 14 day hunting and sighting-seeing safari . The first leg of the hunt was conducted on Rietpoort game reserve where the guys collected some incredible trophies ! Paul shot a Steenbuck ram of 5″7/8 which scored 16″ 5/8 on SCI and is the new SCI No.18. While Geoff shot a great sable bull and massive kudu bull – the real excitement came on the buffalo hunt where Geoff eventually managed to down a charging buffalo bull 15m from his shooting position ! Paul also shot a Black wildebeest bull , zebra and some management animals , including oryx .
The team then moved onto Kamala game reserve in Somerset East where Geoff and Paul both collected fantastic Nyala bulls and Zebra , Geoff added to his trophy tally with a Waterbuck and a very impressive Impala ram . Once again guys well done on the great shooting display ! We look forward to seeing you both back in 2014 !
