Thanks Frederik, for your reply....I'm beginning to understand the whole picture.
Hi, Owen...miss your wise commentary! Hope you are doing well!
Well, I have seen many sheep farms..didn't think they were that profitable....Sheep meat to me...is very average...sorry if I offended anyone. I would rather have beef or pig any day. And I love wild game!
European lamb has a funny smell , then im with you with the beef , pork , game !!
There is just something about the SA vegetation that makes SA lamb the best in the world.......by the way when it comes to barbeque's ( BRAAI ) the first rule is use wood not charcoal ...damn it does my head in when i see coal hahaha.. Lamb ribs with lemon juice under the African stars and the noises .. ooh thats it for me ;-)
One of the best topics I ve read in AH.
Now, my own experience, my four safaris have been trophy hunting, yet, now and then I have been asked by my PH to shoot an animal for meat or because it had defective horns.
He knows I like to shoot, and I do it gladly for him, but I am not expected to pay for it.
Well the next time I'm there, I'm having sheep (lol). Thanks for your post Owen!
Ellocuently put by Bushbuck I could not agree more with him about "Recreation and discretionary income", in this times (International Hunting in General) is rivaling : Family Vacations, home improvements, season tickets, New Car, New wardrobe, stock market investment, retiring plan,,, etc.
Is "Either" , "OR" , you could do all but not in the same year like it used to be, I feel obliged to my family, and could not supreme the family vacations to use the money to go hunting , but what if it could be done in the same outting?, Will it be fun for "All of us" or just for me?, if there is a way to be honestly all happy in one single trip, that will solve my problem of only going hunting internationally once every 3 years. I am not sure if I can make myself clear in English beacause is not my lenguage, but what I am trying to say is that I hope there is more fun programs for the whole family in the African Hunting spectrum.
Very, Very True. I have also noticed an increase in mudslinging matches accross other forums. I think this entire forum community can take a pat on the back for keeping this forum clean and polite.
