    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.

    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! ;)
