    Bosman, before I got to James' response mine was exactly the same: WOW!!
    That just sounds like too much fun.

    All those Texas hog hunters out there should be be well practiced for this one.

    I have got to keep this one in mind for the future.

    I find this less attractive than some others. What are the hogs "reading" in any case ???? We have had a very dry season and the Warthogs are the first to die . Definately not something I will ever offer .........

    Irrigated crops, if I read it right.

    Interesting concern you raise about the Vlakvark. Conservation is always an issue.
    Perhaps this is sustainable in the cropland area.

    I will agree on the warthog. I work with two groups of hound hunters and they are not letting them be shot. Before you sign up for this offer you need to figure out how good of shape you are in. 95% of our pigs are taken in close range. This means you need to keep up with the dogs and use a shotgun or 30/30.

    Bushpigs have turned into a major problem. We have not been hunting as much as normal due to conditions but are still close to 300 for the year.

    Hi Guys

    Yes you are right Richard we have had a very dry season and the Warthogs are the first to die.
    BUT THIS IS IN SOME AREAS, MAINLY WHERE NO CROPS ARE PRODUCED.
    If you read the post thoroughly you will note that I offer these hunts in AGRICULTURAL AREAS, UNDER PIVOT and not in HUNTING AREAS OR DRYLAND CROP PRODUCTION AREAS where pigs die of the dry season we had.

    As Brickburn read IRRIGATED CROPS (if only all of us could read this well)

    We go as far as NOT hunting pigs on land where crops are grown under DRYLAND but only in IRRIGATED CROPS.
    This makes a huge difference in the population of Warthog as well as Bushpig

    I will agree on the warthog. I WORK WITH TWO GROUPS OF HOUND HUNTERS and they are not letting them be shot. Before you sign up for this offer you need to figure out how good of shape you are in. 95% of our pigs are taken in close range. This means you need to keep up with the dogs and use a shotgun or 30/30.

    1x Shotgun and 1x Rifle is ideal for this hunt, but again HUNTERS ARE STRATEGICALLY POSITIONED SURROUNDING THE CROP IN ANTICIPATION OF THE FLUSHED PIGS you do not run after the pigs and have to keep up with the Hounds.

    The ratio Bushpig to Warthogs taken on these hunts are 9.5 to 1 because the Bushpigs sleeps in the irrigated crop where they have everything they need, such as food, water and bidding, other than Warthog that go to a Warthog burrow to bed down. Any African PH or Outfitter that knows what he is talking about and that works with houndsmen should be able to figure this out.

    PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS A FLUSH HUNT AND NOT A CHASE HUNT

    Kind Regards Bossie Mostert

    Bossie,

    Firstly I made an observation about warthogs only ! Each to his own you are welcome to do what makes you happy ! One question ? Theses hunters that have to keep up with the dogs are strategically placed on the edges. So they are stationary ..... Secondly if all of us knew how to spell ...... raiding (not reading) and bedding ( not bidding ) it will also help....

    "each to his own you are welcome to do what makes you happy"... please tell me this isnt going to turn into a mini white lion spat...bossie stated from the beginning that the hunters would be placed/stationery, it was saeng101 that brought up the running after dogs scenario. as for bringing up spelling mistakes i dont think it was too difficult to work out what was being stated, and this happens when you have people from a variety of countries writing in what is maybe not their first language. bossie also responded to the warthog problem and explained that these were irrigated areas where water is not in short supply. if i could i would do this hunt as i love driven boar shooting, and i think anyone who manages to take this opportunity will really enjoy themselves.

    Ok, but to be clear guys, we ARE NOT hunting the White Lion with this package :cool:

    Really. Sounds like a fun hunt for a group of guys.

    There are several guys in my area that have seen the pictures from my African hunt they shown a lot of interest in the Warthog. Oddly one of the guys said he'd like to kill 4-5 of them. I'll tell them about this offer.

    I hope this isn't a White Lion thread.... Everyone hunts/doesn't hunt what they like/don't like, there are a few African species that don't really appeal to me but to others these same species are covented. Like SpikeT said, "each to his own you are welcome to do what makes you happy".... Even if it is a canned Lion hunt or hunting Whitetail over bait, it is (in my mind) all in what you as an individual WANT to do and feel comfortable, and it's not my place or anyone else's place to tell someone they are wrong for hunting the way they do.

    And yes, we all od mak spelin mistakes form tim to time.:p:draught:

    I think this offer looks great and I would jump on it if I had the time and money for it.

    I would rather do this than driven Boars in Europe for sure.

    Doesn't matter :)
    If the driven shoot here talked about will be well organized, safe and with many shot chances, I would take that any time before a top driven shoot in Hungary :)

    That said, I would not mind a driven shoot in Hungary for a good price either :D

    think those days are over .we stopped going to the same place in hungary we shot at for 5 or 6 yearsas the prices went up and up, seems german hunters were willing to pay so that was that. this sa pig shoot is great value with it being all inclusive, as i have said would love to do it if i could. :thumb:
