    Got the deposit in and dates booked with paw print for part of our 2014 hunt.Will be myself and son with 2 friends spending 10 days with paw print.I am still looking at some other options for myself and son.Just can not decide on a place for the colored springbucks yet and maybe looking outside of SA for some hunting this trip also.I can say dealing with Pieter at paw print has been great.Looking forward to seeing what the limpo area has to show us and showing my son more of africa.Good luck to all booking there hunts for 2014 and later.

    Good for you, he has great prices! You should love the Limpopo Province.

    Bill, you should think about Jules of the Karoo for your springbuck varieties. Best in S.A. Good luck on your safari with Paw Print.It should be great!

    Are you taking advantage of the buffalo deal he was offering? All the best on your hunt.

    LOL Jules jumped right out to me as well but you beat me to the punch. Amazing animals there, his springbok program was one of the founders of quality game management in SA and one of the most successful, they hold far too many world records to argue that point.

    Jules of the Karoo Safaris - South Africa's Finest

    Anyway good luck on your hunt whatever you decide.

    Thank all for the help on the springbuck ideas.Jules of the karoo are on the short list for sure.Also looking at kmg with marius and two others that i just started looking into more.The springbucks are more for my son to hunt and me just being there to enjoy the time with him.I may look for a cape kudu or something like that on that part of the trip.As for the buff special at paw print not sure that will be in the cards this trip or not.Will depend on what other plans I make with other places on this trip.Still thinking maybe carcal with dogs and letting my son take it with a bow also.Anyone else has any info on springbucks let me know.

    billc, good luck with your trip.

    While in the Limpopo, the Crocodile River holds some fabulous Bushbuck.
    I too have deposit in for 2014. Zimbabwe in August for Cape buff, but first to NZ in May for Stag and Tahr.
