I Would Appreciate Some Advice on a Hunting Trip to Africa...
Contemplating a trip to Africa. The GF will come along and observe. I would like to take a Kudu, Zebra, Gemsbok and a Waterbuck (maybe an Impala or warthog as well). So my questions are:
What country? From what I have read, SA seems to be the place for a rookie hunting PG. If that is the case, what province? If not, where should I go?
Who should I go with? Been checking out all of the sites and reading the hunting reports, but I would appreciate some first-hand recommendations.
How long will I need? Is seven days enough or should I go for ten? While I know that I can chase other animals and tour the country with the GF, I have budgetary constraints to consider.
Rifle? Thinking 30-06. Any reason why I should consider something else?
Taxidermy? Any idea what I should I expect to spend for mounting these four animals? I would like basic shoulder mounts (maybe a rug for the Zebra). Do you guys tan the backskins? Any recommendations on a taxidermist? I am in central Illinois.
Thanks in advance-
