GAME AND HUNT BRINGS YOU HOURS OF READING PLEASURE

Die jaarlikse, internasionale jagbemarkingseisoen het vroeg in Januarie reeds afgeskop met Safari Club International (SCI) se 47ste konvensie en skou in Reno, Nevada, VSA. Vir ’n verandering sit ek nie in die bos of op kantoor om hierdie maand se “Kommentaar” te skryf nie, maar is ek bevoorreg om die sneeubedekte Sierra Nevada-berge vanuit my hotelkamer op die 35ste vloer te sien. Ek het van die geleentheid by die SCI-skou gebruik gemaak om eerstehands van verskeie jagondernemers, wat ook wildtelers is, te verneem dat beide hierdie bedrywe nie ’n nuwigheid is of vinnig gaan verdwyn nie. Lees gerus op bl 30–33 wat bekendes by die skou gesê het.

Over to some interesting content on local soil. We take a look at the CZ 550 – one of the most trusted options on the Dark Continent, especially when it comes to big calibres for dangerous-game hunting. See the latest addition to the successful series, the CZ 550 Safari Classics II, on p 26.

Hunting editor, Stefan Fouché, had a special eland bull in sight as the last specimen to complete his spiral-horn quest. Read on p 10 how he hunted this old warrior bull with open sights and at a close distance. In the process he also learnt many lessons about himself and his surrounds – an experience that added a special dimension to the hunt.

End of a special challenge

With only one of the four specimens of the spiral-horn family still missing from the challenge he had set himself, Stefan Fouché hunted a special old eland warrior with JWK Safaris in the Free State

CZ 550 – Safari Classics II

The powerful CZ 550 Safari Classics II rifles are now available outside the US – great news for those who love to hunt dangerous game in Africa and the rest of the world

In conversation with Mike Englezakis

Having met Mike Englezakis many times at his successful wildlife auctions and at other industry events, the GAME & HUNT team had the pleasure to visit him on the farm Nietverdiend close to Zeerust
