    Welcome to AH 316africa! I would recommend finding a good outfitter that hunts over baits, is Bushpig the only animal your looking for? How long would you like to spend in Africa and what time of year do you plan to go? give us some ideas and we can probably get you hooked up. Bob

    Welcome to AH.

    There is a tall order.. Tiny ten with a long bow.
    Small Cats as well.

    I hope you have a lot of repeat trips in your mind. 5 days hunting is not a long time for any of these species with a bow.

    You have your work cut out for you. Enjoy the challenge.

    Please share your hunting report when you return.
    Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
    A Legend in my own mind!

    It 's a tall order, it can be done. I saw PH Erwin Kotze take Tim Well from on the Sportsman Channel in Namibia for small cats. Takes mad skills.

    Hi 316 5 days it can be done with a lot of luck for the 3 main ones listed, Bushpig over bait, Caracal with dogs and Duiker at night but it'll be tight. I'll check with my Outfitter and see what kind of special deal we can work up for you and I'll send you a PM as soon as he gets back with me. Bob

    Hi 316, I can assist with a Walk & Stalk Bushpig and Caracal over hounds. Walk & Stalk for the Bushpig so that trophy choice is optimised. My email is in the signature should you be interested.

    Good Day 316Africa

    You have been told that your work has been cut out for you, well in my humble opinion, YES it has but your dream is not that far from reality.

    I offer 5 of the Tiny 10 in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and in the past we have taken Bushpig with traditional equipment from our blinds.

    Duiker, Klipspringer, Steenbuck, Red Duiker and Sharps Greysbuck can be hunted from a blind overlooking a waterhole (August to October is the best time)

    Sharps Greysbuck can also be hunted at night using a spotlight.
    Klipspringr can also be hunted by using a caller

    For Bushpig we have well used feeding spots and elevated blinds.

    For small cat I would recommend that you consider Gavin Lipjes offer to assist with his pack of hounds, I make use of Gavin for DCA Leopard and he is highly recommended.

    5 Days might not be enough time, 10 days will be better but you are still welcome to try.
