    Lapaiki, I would go for Kudu, limpopo bushbuck, Burchelle's zebra, warthog and impala, you will be sure to get very good quality on these, then again lists are there to be changed and often something different shows up,

    Nothing as nice unexpected targets of opportunity :-) go with an open mind and take it as it comes :-)

    Well bushpigs can be found in a number of places. It's important to find a outfitter that specializes in them, if they are imporant to you.

    Bushpigs are mostly hunted by baiting or running them with dogs.....spot and stalk usually doesn't work.

    Waterberg has plenty of them, running a bait is no major issue be sure to hunt the right areas though as numbers are plenty in certain and extremely slim in other areas in Limpopo , I would almost go as far as to say that the Waterberg will be one of your best bets.....:-)

    Jaco nailed that one once again . I have leopard baits out at the moment . They all have Bushpig around . They can be lured with guts , rotten meat or corn. The Waterberg has no shortage of big pigs !

    Happy Hunting !!!

    Richard thought I would attach some pictures, of a starter Leopard bait/Bushpig/Hyena/Badger... a crap just a bait... Very true what you are saying though......

    You'll see a dead boar in the pic as well it got shot and the trail cam was to slow.. anything hits these baits, I amm a firm believer that baits become better over time... where bushpig occur it is as Richard says really not that hard to find with the right preperation and ads a slightly different dimension to a regular plains game hunt.

    Also keep in mind that the bushpig and Leopard were feeding the same site at night just at different times, we harvested the Bushpig and the cat still came in to feed it did not bother it one bit.......

    I agree with you guys, right preparation...bushpig not impossible to hunt. Some people look at a trophy list and see bushpig on a trophy list and expect to kill one...no questions asked. I think whether its bushpigs or one of the smaller cats you have to tell your outfitter what you are looking to hunt. A outfitter is limited on how many small cats can be harvested and exported. And some outfitters might hunt bushpigs on the main property, others might have to drive over to a different property.

    Ha ha:-)no no thought i would add it in to show how much fun it can be it has happened a couple of times while hunting bushpig that a leopard visits or hyena, at least you know that your blind set up is good...

    Point is bushpig hunting can be fun as you never know what might come in... what you think of the Tomcat.?

    Nice but no monster....:-)IMO
