Hands up who is hunting Africa in 2014?
« on: February 03, 2014, 04:56:00 PM »
G'day guys,

Seeing as things seem to be a bit slow on the African forum I was just wanting to read all the preparations & plans those fellow hunters of the dark continent who are taking the rains in their hands and hunting there this year?

I am longing to return to Namibia myself but seeing as I have a black bear hunt booked for June in BC it'll be mid 2015 that will see me stalk the sandy regions of Western Africa again.


Cheers,

ak.

Namibia again for us this coming July. I love that place. We may have an open spot for one if anyone is looking to go in 2014. One guy in our party had to cancel due to work.

I am videoing a leopard hunt in SA and will be hunting for cape buffalo on my time. Got the heavy longbow back out and ready to do some stalking.

Keep us posted on your Buff set up please mate... Keen to see what you develop for your hunt. Will you be giving the Tuff head a run?

My wife set up a hunt for the two of us at Matlabas Game Hunters, RSA.  Looking forward to our hunt, practicing every day.

We just got back from SA a couple weeks ago. It was an awesome trip and can't wait to go back. I should post some stuff when I get caught up.
