    I have only hunted North America so far. I will soon experience my first hunt in Africa, hunting in Belmont, South Africa with Fort Richmond outfitters. I booked this hunt nearly two years ago and am extremely excited. I have a six animal package hunt, and have varied from the standard package to include Gemsbok, Kudu, Blesbok, Impala, Wildebeest (black or blue) and one species which I have left open for possibilities when I arrive.

    Sounds like you have made a decent selection of species and you left yourself open.

    Have a great hunt and do post your hunt report.

    good luck.

    Welcome to AH.

    Looks like a fine package with options available.

    If any of the following are available and a nice one happens to appear while looking for one of your other designated trophy's i suggest that you consider or Look for eland - nyala - bushbuck or waterbuck to add to your list.

    Welcome!!!

    Good idea not to lock yourself in completely. WAY too many choices to do so!!!! Enjoy the site and the trip!

    Have begun shooting off of sticks. Costly with a .300 Weatherby at current prices.

    Good Hunting Luck! The only advice I can give is start stashing cash for the next trip. There'll be another.:)

    Welcome to AH tpomavil! Enjoy the hunting trip, and what a great idea to leave a mystery animal to choose when you get here! ;)
