SOUTH AFRICA: BOWHUNT: Falcon Safaris Bowhunt
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.
