First of all I had to put on a warm coat, good shoes and long trousers. When me and Rohan (the son at the farm) both were ready, we took his open car and drove to a small area. From there, we walked, maybe five minutes, to the hunting tower. We climbed up a ten meter ladder, and then we sat mostly quiet and waiting. We didn’t see anything besides some birds and a warthog.
After approximately an hour we went back to the car and drove to an other location. We stopped and walked for short time. After 30 seconds we saw a jackal. He hit the jackal, but it didn’t die. We ran after it, but it was too fast. We stopped and looked for blood trails but we didn’t find anything. He told me that you can’t eat it but that he tried to kill it because jackals eat their sheep.
We went back to the first location and 50 meters before the hunting tower we saw an oryx (a kind of antelope). Rohan grabbed his rifle and jumped out of the car. He aimed and shot. This time it died.
It was a fence but me and Rohan could easily go through. We went and looked for it. We found the or, but it was stuck in a bush. We pulled it out by the horns and laid it on the ground. We couldn’t take the oryx to the car, so we had to take the car to the oryx. We went back to the car. We couldn’t drive right to the oryx, because of the fence. We drove around, but it was just bushes everywhere. We went back to the fence and took it down. I stood on it, and he drove through and to the oryx. The car had a thick wire that we pulled it up in the car with. Then we went to the fence and put it up again. We drove back to the house, and slaughtered it.
