Default For those who have hunted africa

Let's see those pics. Either trophy pics or just regular pics of the animals or scenery. Let's get to see the dark continent a little better for those of us who won't get that opportunity.

Ryan,

Give me a day or two to put together a slide show.

Can I ask why you think you will never get to go? Many hunts in Africa (including airfare) are cheaper than hunting here in the state. A good friend of mine just drew a mt.goat tag on Kodiak Island, Alaska. It's a tag which requires an outfitter. So, I put her in touch with Kodiakarcher (Rob). Rob sent heran email with the name of reputable outfitter. Can you believe her BUDGET hunt is going to cost $6900? With that same money, I can hunt Africa and come home witha minimum often different animal species. I will give you an example. I just had an outfitter, who I have hunted with, send me an email. He is over burdened by lions-lionesses in particular. He has offered a lioness hunt for $2000 USD (not sure how many need to be removed but it is a simialr concept as removing does from a herd-they have exceeded the carrying capacity. PM me anyone if you are interested). In the East Cape of S. Africa, I put together an "all inclusive" 10 day safaris for $2995. It includedseven animals: kudu, springbok, warthog, duiker, steinbok, impala, and blesbok. Jackels, caracals, bat eared fox, and baboons were tossed into the deal for free! Airfare packages can be had for as little as $1300 if one is prudent. So let's do the math: $2000 + $2995 + $1300= $6295. That leaves $705 for another critter or two-13 to 14animals or morecoming out of Africa for the same price as one coming from the states. And while you're there, you are treated like royalty!

Never say never my friend- plan, save, execute! If you need help putting something together, I'm here for you! Cheers!

Will, although the hunt may be less expensive up front, the taxidermy bill will surely be a big one, but then again, those are the kind of problems that ill take any day of the week!
One day i will be over there.

Its going to be more of an issue for me atleast of Finding the time to go, having people to go with, getting all the stuff and the fact that Im going to college which will be putting quite a damper on my budget for a long while... Hopefully I'll be able to go sooner rather than later. But its hard to say. Sorta a Dream at the moment But Alllllll dreams are Doable.

Ryan.

Africa is definately doable for about the same costs as one big game hunt guided out west here in NA...but for some reason, I can't seem to get interested in it like I am elsewhere. Internationally, I would much rather hunt NZ, Australia, and Argentina before Africa. Eventually I too want to head over (might take my Dad when I graduate college as a gift to him for all he has done for me or something)...IDK. One thing is for sure, they have some wild animals and some wild places. If I went, I think I would rather hunt outside of one of the consessions just for personal reasons, which is still a very viable option from what I am told.

Will,that lionness hunt sounds like a steal, I would love to take a lionwith the stick and string. I can only imagine the rush yours gave you! I am anxious to see thisslideshow!
