Planning 1st AH bowhunting trip... advice?
I was just about to book another backcountry elk hunting trip in the United States when my wife asked me "why don't you try bow hunting in Africa instead?" I guess that I never thought it possible, but after a little research I have found that it is getting popular and now I can't stop thinking about it. So, I have changed my plans for this year and would like to head to Africa for a 10-day trip for plains game.
My questions to all of you would be 1) What country offers the best game numbers and is the most friendly for bowhunters? I have been looking closely at Namibia, but after spending a few hours on this forum I se many other possibilities. 2) Has anyone hunted with Vieranis in Namibia? If so, could you tell me about their concession, experience and set-up? I am just looking for references. Seem like good people but I have been fooled by nice websites before so always like to ask around. Any other suggestions are welcome. I'm looking for a hard week of hunting and not a cushy vacation hunt. Should I be looking at "bowhunting only" safaris, or do the outfitters usually separate rifle areas from bow hunting areas?
Thanks in advance,
