Default Father and Son Exotics Hunt

My son and I are headed for Texas Saturday to the H Yterra ranch for a 3 day exotics hunt. It will be done safari style. He is after a Nilgai and I a Scimitar Horned Oryx. Will post pictures when I can. We been scheming, plotting, planning, and saving for over 3 years to do this together and it is almost finally time. Bonus is I celebrate my 50th next Tuesday in camp. Hope to see my son down a trophy and get it on camera for my B-Day present.

Today is my birthday. This is my present. Even better I got to share this with my son
He is still trying to seal the deal on a nilgai.
Hornady 250 gr RN interlock powered by 50.1 gr of RL15. Recovered the bullet under the skin on front far shoulder on a quartering away shot at 168 yards.

My son shoots and scores! Neck shot at 5 pm on the last day. DRT. Guide put finishing shot into the heart. Lost track of the stalks blown, miles walked, and hours spent glassing. Totally worth it.
