The team recently went out and completed our monthly shooting practice. This is the absolute last resort if a guide is faced with a potentially life threatening situation and there is an imminent threat to his guests safety.
In the training session various time trails are run on quick firing and reloading. We simulate various scenarios for the guides and an example of this can be seen in the photos below (we simulated two grumpy old buffalo bulls charging at the same time).
The guide’s reaction time and accuracy are put to the test in these exercises. The focus is to keep their skills in top form as safety is always our first priority.
The calibre of rifle used are all .458 which leave you with a tender shoulder and a slight ringing in your ears. We will be attending a specialized raptor course in the next few days and we look forward to updating you on this.
