Accepting the variability swing to swing and shot to shot was a huge understanding for me as a shooter and as a coach! Knowing that I can’t make the same perfect move mount and shot every time I call pull, allows for me to let my subconscious take care of set up and when and how the mount is completed. This keeps it out of my visualization and does not allow for it to clutter it up with things that don’t need to be there.
Botswana is an extraordinary place to hunt plains game in Africa today. Why?
Using decoys to lure in wary toms is nothing new. Spring turkey hunters often opt for hen decoys to get the big tom’s attention and bring them in range. While biology works much of the time, the threat of a rival for a hen’s affections can provide the incentive for that big tom to come running.
We hadn’t been following tracks twenty minutes before we heard the crashing sound of the buffalo taking off. That didn’t come as any surprise. The thick, jungle-like rainforest made tracking difficult. Trying to be quiet was almost impossible and I couldn’t wrap my head around just how we were going to pull this off. Baby, our head pygmy tracker, continued following the lone bull tracks. At least they were fresh tracks.

John G Millais came from an artistic and hunting family. He traveled throughout Africa studying the people, the country and the wildlife. He was an ardent hunter. His Nile book was the result of a trip to the Sudan and many of the remote districts in which there was tremendous plains game hunting for the less common species. This chapter is about his hunting on the Swamps and Nam plains.
