    Default NAMIBIA AFRICA: BOWHUNT: Bowhunt in Namibia

    My eldest boy and I decided to bowhunt Agagia, in Namibia, this last June. It is an experience him and I will never forget. All I have to do now to put a smile on his face is say "Namibia" or "Agagia".

    We were there for a week and enjoyed every second of it. The hospitality of Tielman and Carin Neethling was great and the wildlife was amazing.

    I managed to harvest a Gemsbok (37inch cow), a Kudu (47.5 inch ) and a few Warthogs and Jett managed to harvest his first Warthog.( not bad for a 8 year old )

    I can highly recommend bowhunting Namibia with Agagia.

    thanks for posting.
    i really hope to do that sometime - as well as spending a bit of time
    visiting the Himba people in N. Namibia.

    The problem with this forum - is that too many things are going onto my "bucket list".
    Hahahahha!!!

    How much does it cost to hunt antelope in Namibia?

    TimRumble - Congratulations on a super hunt. To be able to share this adventure with your son is astounding. Love the video.

    Noticed the penetration on the red hartebeest wasn't very deep. Open on impact broadhead?
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Thank you.

    Yes Stretch, the broadhead was a Rage Chisel tip.The shot placement was bad and the arrow stopped up against the bone. A few inches the the rear or down and it would have been all over, but we did not manage to recover this one. You win some, you lose some.

    Upepo, you can get a price list from Agagia's website or email Carin for a price list. All the details are on their website.

    That's how the hit appears in the video. A little forward, think you hit the leg bone. On my Africa hunt I shot high on one animal (shoulder) and did not penatrate well with a cut-on-impact fixed blade. Know how you feel. On the other hand, you had a great hunt, shot some super animals, and were able to share your son's first kill with him. Doesn't get any better than that. Congratulation's again.
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    Sorry to hear that you felt misled.
    (Please post a hunt report so others can learn)

    There are good outfitters that understand bow hunting.
    Ask them more direct questions on bow hunting as you research your next hunt Bow hunt.
    Get pictures.
    References from Bow hunters.

    Noting things like the OP's Equipment info is a start.

    Agagia is definately set up for bow hunting. We had days where we had animals 3 meters away from the hide infront of the shooting window.
