deur Herman du Plessis

En daar sleep Tert ons saam jagveld toe. Dis nou vir my en Pitte. Ons het gestry en geweier en vasgeskop vir die vale, maar verniet. Tert is erger as 'n bosluis. Ons het selfs geskimp in die rigting van ruïnering van kosbare vriendskappe, maar Tert was horede doof. Ons hou eenvoudig net nie van die jagding nie, verstaan? Visvang ja! Dis reg en lekker. Tenminste kan jy die vis weer terugsit in die water en as hy nie lus het vir vreet nie, kan jy op jou kop staan, maar as 'n koeël 'n bok platgetrek het, sit jy die bok nie weer terug in die bos nie. Bloed en rook is baie dieselfde. Alle elektriese goed werk met rook. As 'n elektriese ding se rook uitgekom het, dan is die ding stukkend al probeer jy die rook terugsit. Net so min as jy die rook kan terugsit net so min kry jy 'n rooklose elektriese ding weer reg. Dieselfde met bloed. As die bloed uit 'n koeëlgat uitgekom het is dit verby. Ek verstaan ......... ek verstaan, liewe jagtervriend. Jag is 'n vorm van bewaring, want as dit nie vir jagters was nie, sou daar bitter min wild in die bosveld oor gewees het. Maar 'n Koedoe in die bos is vir my mooier as 'n Koedoe aan 'n haak. En 'n Swartwitpens aan 'n haak is vir my 'n doodsonde. Vir eet is daar beeste, skape, varke en hoenders. Die diere van die veld is eintlik net vir kyk. Ons Suid Afrikaners is die enigste mense wat 'n eie wetenskaplike naam het. Al die ander mense op die aarde is Homo Sappiens, maar óns wetenskaplike naam is Karnivorus Maximus.

Laat die middag kom ons by die Kalahari Lodge aan. Dis 'n oase. 'n Paradys in die woestyn. Ons luier die res van die middag om en aand se kant toe skuif ons na die kampvuur toe. Lekker gesellig met 'n ietsie in die hand. Die kos is uit die boeke, die geselskap goed en die atmosfeer kan nie beter nie. Volmaak; so met die volmaan wat oor die oosterkim loer. Groot en geel hang hy daar. “Hoekom is alles so deurmekaar in hierdie mooi land van ons?” wonder ek sonder om dit hardop te sê. “Hoekom kan alles nie in harmonie wees en bly nie? Hoekom probeer die meeste van ons so hard om op voetsoolvlak in rasse-harmonie te leef, maar iewers is daar iemand wat ander planne het en vrede en harmonie is nie deel van daardie planne nie?” Dis vrae wat in my kop kom lê terwyl ek en die rus en vrede indrink. Iewers is iets vreeslik verkeerd en nie een van ons is instaat om dit uit te pluis nie. Toe die eerste jakkals agter die duine tjank, stu daar 'n weemoedigheid in my op en ek besluit om te gaan slaap. Môre is 'n lang dag.

Vroeg die volgende oggend jaag Tert ons uit die bed uit met koffie en beskuit. Hy is haastig om in die jagveld te kom. Ons gids is 'n verkreukelde Boesman wat reeds in die jagkar sit en wag toe ons buite kom. Die jagkar het nie 'n naam nie. Dis hoekom dit net 'n jagkar is. Iewers lank terug kon dit 'n Toyota gewees het. Of 'n Nissan. Dalk 'n Ford. Niks is egter uitkenbaar nie, en daarom is dit sommer net 'n jagkar. Tenminste is daar 'n Maar nou ja. Ek en Pitte gaan enjin. toe maar saam wat. 'n Mens kan Daar is 'n skerp byt in die lug toe net soveel weerstand bied teen ons wegry. Die sonnetjie kry ons Tert as hy eers opgereff is en tussen twee duine onder 'n ou niks meer nie. So vertrek ons Kameeldoringboom. Tydsaam een Donderdag dou voor dag klim ons van die jagkar af en hier van Hartbeespoort af drink van die koffie in die fles. Kalahari toe. Die atmosfeer is Ons eet elkeen so twee-drie gemoedelik en ons geniet die beskuite. Hiervandaan is dit te saamwees. Die jagtery begin voet verder. Ons vat elkeen 'n eers môre en dis nog vêr. waterbottel en stap agter die Die pad is ver. En lank. Ons ry Boesman aan. deur 'n gedeelte wat nie ek of Die son het al 'n hele ent teen die Pitte nog ooit gesien het nie. Dis hemel geklim toe Pitte (nogal verstommend hoe baie die Pitte hoor!) 'n groot Koedoebul natuur van streek tot streek halfpad teen 'n duin op gewaar verskil. En dan dons mense waar hy aan 'n bos peusel. Dis oorsee voordat hulle nog ons moeilik om afstand te skat met mooi land behoorlik bekyk het. die op en af van die duine, maar Aan die ander kant; elkeen maak Tert doen sy bes. In my hart seker met sy geld wat hy wil.

wens ek hy skiet mis. Daar is 'n soort aristokrasie in die bok se houding. Hy hou op peusel en kyk in ons rigting. Tert raak haastig; eintlik te haastig en toe die skoot klap, spring die Koedoe in die lug, val op die grond neer, spring weer op en verdwyn oor die duin se kam. Tert sug. Ek hou nie van hierdie ding nie. Die wêreld lê oop en wyd. Waar gaan ons daardie Koedoe kry? Ons loop tot by die plek waar die Koedoe gevreet het. “Ons gaan ver loop vandag,” sê die Boesman. “Dis nie 'n goeie skoot nie. Meneer het sy been afgeskiet, kyk hier,” en hy wys op die grond. Ek sien net 'n paar bloedspatsels. “Nee, meneer moet mooi kyk” sê die Boesman. “Kyk, hier lê 'n stukkie been en daar lê nog 'n splinter. Hier is 'n sleepspoor soos hy sy been sleep. Hy kan hom nie optel nie, so die been moet af wees.” My hart bloei. Dat 'n veldaristokraat so moet vlug vir sy lewe. 'n Doodskoot sou beter wees. Skielik is ek spyt ek het gewens dat Tert mis moet skiet. Ons loop. En ons loop. En ons lóóp!! Dan het ons die spoor en dan raak dit dowwer. Dan tel ons dit weer op en dan verdwyn dit tussen ander spore. So gaan dit aan. Net na middagete se koers sien die Boesman die Koedoe waar dit agter 'n Witgatbos staan. Kop omlaag staan hy daar. Die bok moet van ons bewus wees, want die windjie stoot van ons af in sy rigting, maar hy gee nie meer om nie. Pyn en dors het hom op die punt waar hy net vir die genade skoot wag. Tert gaan staan met sy voete uitmekaar geplant in die sand, haal diep asem en lê aan. Toe die skoot uiteindelik klap val die bok eers vooroor op sy gesonde knie, kantel oor op sy sy, veg nog een laaste keer met sy horings teen die onsigbare ding wat hom wil oorrompel en lê dan doodstil. Die sand suig die bloed op soos 'n spons. Sonder 'n woord stap ons tot waar die Koedoe lê. Dis stil daar in die Kalahari. Skielik staan ons weer iewers in Angola by die lewelose liggaam van 'n gestorwe makker.

geweer se loop in daardie mik druk en hom buig tot daar waar niemand meer iets met dit kan doen nie. Dan gaan ek 'n gat in die sand maak en daardie geweer begrawe. Ek het klaar gejag. Hierdie was die laaste.” Ek en Pitte is bly om van die toneel af weg te kom. Na wat soos 'n ewigheid gevoel het kom ons weer by die jagkar aan. Terwyl ons oppad was na die jagkar toe, was dit amper asof die diere geweet het die gevaar is nou verby. Ons verlustig ons in die Gemsbokke, Rooi Hartbeeste, Koedoes en 'n klompie Elande op ons pad. Dis mooi. As ek regtig moet, en dis terwille van my eie oorlewing sal ek seker 'n skoot moet waag na 'n Rooibok of iets dergeliks, maar dis net as ek regtig moet. Pitte voel ook so. Biltong is 'n lekkerny, nie 'n noodsaaklikheid nie. Terwyl ons daar by die jagkar staan en bietjie asem skep, snuffel die Boesman op die grond rond. Die grond is vir hom soos een groot boek. Hy lees die spore daar voor hom soos ek my koerant lees. “Dit was 'n besige oggend hier by hierrie boom,” sê die Boesman. “Ek sien hier was tot 'n ou man op 'n mank perd saam met 'n hond met 'n stomp stert.” Ek en Pitte stap tot waar hy op die grond staar. Ons probeer sin maak van dit wat daar op die grond aangaan, maar ons is so dom soos 'n watergees in die einste Kalahari. “Hoe kan jy al hierdie goed in die sand sien, ou?” vra Pitte terwyl hy sy oë op skrefies trek. “Nee, meneer sien, dit was 'n mank perd. Hy is mank in sy linker agter been, want hier waar die linker agtervoet getrap het is die spoor dieper as die ander drie.” “O,” sê Pitte, “nou hoe weet jy dis 'n hond met 'n stomp stert?” “Nee, meneer sien, kyk; hier het hy gesit. Kyk, hier het die agtervoete gedruk en hier is die kolletjie in die sand waar die stert gedruk het.” “O,” sê Tert weer. Ek voel soos 'n Egiptoloog wat probeer om hierogliewe in 'n piramide te ontsyfer. “Nou hoe kan jy sien dit was 'n óú man?” vra ek aan die Boesman. “Hoekom nie net “'n man” nie?”

“Ons moet seker nou die kar gaan haal,” sê die Boesman na 'n rukkie. Tert skud sy kop. “Nee meneer sien, dis 'n óú man. “Gaan julle maar. Ek wil eers Kyk, hier is sy spore en hier sit hier bly. Ek wil vir hierdie bok sê die nat kol tússen die voete.” ek is sorrie. En dan gaan ek my
