In 1909 then Col. Teddy Roosevelt went on a hunting expedition to Africa, and with his party of eight, shot every thing site. Expedition hunting licenses included 50 animals/hunter, plus an extra bull elephant, and extra giraffe, rhino, or eland, an extra antelope, an extra wildebeest, and an extra waterbuck.
Matt Hughes just returned from a hunting expedition in South Africa he conducted with his son Joey, and although he is no Teddy Roosevelt, he was busy.
Hunting is South Africa is strictly licensed, and the hunting license fees fund the nation's excellent conservation efforts.
On July 4th, Joey and I left for Africa. We flew in to Johannesburg and then took a jumper flight to Port Elizabeth. All of our hunting was done in the country of South Africa. Joey and I had a great time, I got homesick, but Joey didn’t want to come home when the hunt ended. Here are the photos of the animals that we hunted.

The Bible verse for this week:
Let us not grow weary of doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9)

As has happened in the past when Hughes posted hunting images on his blog, Dan Hardy took offense.

When is open season on ignorant, red neck, misguided, phony-Christian a--holes? I would love to shoot some of those.
