    Default Africa in April

    Hi All,
    I just booked a bow hunt in RSA from June 8-14. Those dates were chosen because
    "it is a good time for bow hunting. " I do understand that dry conditions increases waterhole
    activity. That is not my question. I am hoping to sneak off in April (my 50th birthday on
    the 13th) to hunt . My question is if there is good bow hunting that time of year? The next
    question is how difficult would it be to get a good deal at that time of year? Gonna be quite
    a sales job So for April price matters.

    thanks-Jerry

    Congrats on your booking. Who will you be hunting with?

    I bowhunted April last year and didnt find it particularly bad time of year. It all depends on how much rain your area gets before you arrive. I still do think August through October is best though.

    Hi,
    I am going with Motsomi Safari's. I hunted with them last year and it was wonderful. I would go there in April as well but I kinda wanted to see something different. I do understand later is better but April is my b-day and I am going somewhere. Maybe not africa.


    thanks-Jerry

    Went in April in 2012 and you will have warm weather.

    Do a 2 week weather print out for your area as a tool to use. it is close and helps your guidance.

    Have fun and provide a report when you return.
