We’re back in Africa searching for plains game in the Eastern Cape. Larno Rens of Monapula Safaris is the PH, and Merkel’s Anke Sauerteig is behind the rifle. We’ve got a wide array of species lined up for us, but first is the impala. On a 2,000-hectare reserve, though, it’s never easy no matter what your quarry is, and it’ll take a few false starts until we finally locate the herd. Then it’s all down to the stalk.
Back at home, Wes has an affordable target shotgun from Webley & Scott in his hands, and finds himself pleasantly surprised by just what you can get for a refreshingly small sum.
