    I saw an advertisment for Northwoods Adventures in one of the SCI Magizines. They had a couple good offers in Nambia and South Africa. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this booking agent. Thank you for your help.

    Welcome to AH.

    Read there policies on cancellation and deposits.
    Requiring a notarized letter with reasons to cancel a hunt. Really??? Gives me pause.

    I know who you are talking about because they are based here in my home state of Wisconsin. I think the hunting operations are legit, I just don't care for the company that represents and sells the hunts. The owner is VERY SLICK and will say whatever to sell a hunt. I don't care for that type of attitude at all. But from what I've seen the hunting operations he represents are legit. The price sells the hunts for sure and I think that is why the hunts sell.

    With a little more research you will find better people on AH.

    Here's your answer

    Do not book with him. I did to Mozambique in 1999 and didn't get anything, didn't see anything except for warthogs and baboons. No buffalo. However, I did make friends with the PH and he allowed me to return free of daily rates 2 years later and I found a nice buff but the operator went out of business before it could be shipped. I found a reproduction mount here in the US made from photos of my buff.
