    Red face SOUTH AFRICA: Free Range Nyala Hunting - Lake Safaris - Durban South Africa

    Trevor Lake of Lake Safaris (Lake Safaris - South Africa) has taken the time to send me a couple of pictures of 2 very Happy Nyala hunters. I just wanted to share them with our members on the AH forum.

    As discussion on AH has widened on weather the animals are fenced or free range. The area that Trevor Lake Safaris hunts is Wide open and as Free Range as you will find.

    As you will see one Nyala bull has Flaring tips, which by the way is very common on the free range property that Trever Lake has sole hunting rights to. So if you are looking for a good 30 inch Nyala Bull to add to your trophy room this is the place to give it a go. All the Nyala bulls that i saw had the flaring in the horns.

    The second is a Good Nyala bull that has narrow tips. They are there however i did not see any with this configuration.

    Nice. I have been amazed at the number of species and areas that offer good free range hunting in SA, you just have to know where to look. So far I have hunted low fence Nyala, Kudu, Mountain Reedbuck, Vaal Rhebok, SA Springbok, Steinbok, Duiker (although they are winning so far), Warthog, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Impala and I am sure I have missed something. Low fence certainly adds something to the hunt for me although I have no problem with large high fence properties either.
    The journey is the reward.

    Where I will be hunting this August for Nyala in KwaZulu is all free range, 60,000 acres. They are over run with Nyala, 26" is the min. they will harvest but we will be looking for something bigger. So many Nyala have pushed the Bushbuck into the thick stuff, they will be a challenge too.
