    Default SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: Falcon Safaris Bowhunt

    Hi guys,

    Last year my bowhunting buddy and I went off to Falcon Safaris in the Thabazimbi district to get out of the city and spend a few days bowhunting.

    After passing up numerous animals on the first day I took this warthog boar on the second day. He was my first warthog and I took him at 26metres.


    During the week I also took two good impala rams.



    And then I was also very lucky and priviledged to get a shot opportunity on a beautiful, old bushbuck ram which I just could not pass up.


    There really is nothing like spending time in the bush with your friends and family and my friend was truly lucky and got a wonderful opportunity to take a kudu bull and he took it and made a wonderful shot!


    He also shot two impala and a vervet monkey, and his girlfriend was converted and was even willing to shoot an impala!

    It was an awesome week and I would like to thank everyone that made it possible for us.
    I hope you guys will enjoy.

    Congratulations. That is some good fortune to have that nice Bushbuck wander by.

    Nice animals. A very nice week off in the bush.
