Doc, Awesome trip and a great story. I am sure it was fantastic for Jesse. You are a great example for us all. As a man and a hunter!!!

Awesome job. You were shooting one of my favorite bullets. Several years ago during extensive bullets testing with multiple cartridges and calibers the lowly 125PT scored number 2 in penetration for expanding bullets. It beat out many bigger heaver bullets from the 300 Win Mag, 7 mag and several others. In fact the only expanding bullet that out penetrated it was a 400gr Nosler 416 Partition.

Max, Jesse took the same 5 I did, plus a gemsbok. All with his .280 except the blesbok.
I got skunked AGAIN on Bushpig. In 7 trips that I wanted one I have never seen one. This time one bait was not hit after pics of 7 consecutive nights of hits before my sit. The last night we sat over dead cows that had been hit 4 nights in a row. Had brutal rain/wind. Got soaked and NO piggy!!
