Virgin wonders what country to start in for Antelope
Just found this forum few minutes ago. Wow...
Thinking re: trying an African Safari - probably for antelope (Kudu, Oryx, Wildebeest, etc),
but also daydreaming re: cape buffalo. But buff sound very dangerous/expensive:( I don't own a .375 or .416 either - sounds like a waste to buy a rifle for one animal??
Wondering what country to hone in on - political stability/safety, etc.
Leaning to South Africa - but not too sure about that.
My experience to date is shooting deer on my farm in NY state - with DEC permit,
I used to shoot 15 - 20 deer/year with 30-06, 125 grain bullets, an M1 Carbine, my .45 and a
I shot two russian boar and 1 red stag on preserves in Vermont/New Hampshire
all with the 30-06. The boar were both around 250 lbs and the stag was 400 lbs.
I'm 67 years old, and not in super shape:( Looking for a hunt that's comfortable and
involves manageable amount of walking).
Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
