SOUTH AFRICA 2010
When Zambia closed up shop and the politicians and their cronies were scheming UP ways to take over all hunting there, a few of us PH's moved to the south - where the other men of steel wouldn't dare go in fear of risking their iron status.
YES I admit it, I hunted in South Africa, that land of fenced in hunting and a million PH's all around AND IT WAS DAMN GREAT!
Sure I hunted on game ranches and at first my prejudice prevailed until I found myself sitting atop a mist covered peak in my tiny Zambian shorts and sandals freezing my ass off waiting for an insignificant little critter with a wooly coat and a thousand yard eyesight to appear - I was hunting Vaal Rhebok - and I must say it kicked my butt more than any wounded buffalo had ever done!
Hunting in this country is not about the fences, you need to approach it with the right attitude and you will never have as much fun anywhere else - it is simply a great hunting destination which is within the reach of everyone.
I have some very affordable hunts for the prime species - Kudu and Gemsbok - and then full country safaris where you get to see the whole damn lot and if you want shoot them all! I found that the best kind of trip was a leisurely 2-3 week sojourn through the country from north to south taking in the best sights and hunting opportunities along the way - it is a great family trip or for a group of hunting buddies looking to have a ball!
In 2010 I plan to revisit my old stomping grounds - it will be a trip from Cape Town through the Free State to Johannesburg and then onwards to Natal OR the other way round? - hunting is the focus but having fun is also right up there - anyone care to join this trip let me know - EMAIL
