TEMPERATURES DROPPED THIS WEEK AND THE MORNING WINTER CHILLS HAVE DEFINITELY SET IN, THIS HOWEVER HASN'T AFFECTED THE FANTASTIC GAME VIEWING THAT WE HAVE HAD. ONE THING I HAVE NOTICED IS THE LACK OF ANIMAL ACTIVITY AROUND THE WATERHOLES, THERE STILL SEEMS TO BE A LOT OF SMALLER WATER HOLES SCATTERED THROUGH THE BUSH AND THEREFORE THE ANIMALS DON'T NEED TO COME TO THE BIGGER WATER POINTS JUST YET, HOWEVER IN THE COMING WEEKS AS WE MOVE FURTHER INTO WINTER THIS SHOULD CHANGE.
