    I just saw Tom's post about a hunt for Sable and other animals in Zambia in hunts offered. Sable is currently near the top of my most wanted list. The price listed seems good especially considering the other animals. It is really at the top of my budget.... Anyone else seen a good sable hunt for less? I'd still want to shoot a couple of other animals. Looking at the 7-9 days time frame. May be able to get a friend to go if multiple people helps bring the cost down. Just want to see if anyone has any other specials out there before I look further at Tom's offer. Thanks for any help. Bruce

    Zambia has closed all hunting. Our concession in the Kafue is no more for an undisclosed time.
    We do have Sable in South Africa along with a lot of other species if you are interested.
    Send me a PM and I can contact you.

    Zambia is only closed on government land Fritz. Still open on private properties.

    You are correct Tom. I am so disappointed in the whole fiasco that is costing us a fortune that I made a silly mistake. Apology from my side.

    Hi Bruce

    The Outfit that I hunt with is offering a Trophy Sable with a trophy fee of $8500 are you wanting to put a package together or just the Sable and add trophies while you hunt? Is this going to be a rifle hunt or a bow hunt? Thanks Bob

    This is one of the Sable taken last year. I counted over 30 or 40 while I was there in June.

    Sorry for the time that I was absent. I was in Central Africa for a while and only came back a few weeks ago. Things are hectic with Zambia closing and moving clients over to our Mozambique concession. I shall put some word on paper again one of these days.
    Cheers

    I would jump all over Tom's deal. Those Zambia ranches produce monster sable. I went on a $14k package deal for sable, defasau waterbuck, livingstone eland, bone zebra, and impala. I ended up shooting all those animals and having a great time. My sable measured out at 48" and we saw several over 44". Trust me, those Zambia game farms are real hunts like here in the us and the sable in those areas are absolutely massive. Well worth the price. The quotes I got for bulls over 46" were well north of $30k because most can make more money by selling them within Zambia as breeding bulls. If things go my way this year and time allows I will definitely be taking a few of those packages.

    I am waiting for a sable bow hunt for 3500.oo us. I am also waiting for a beautiful blonde nymphomaniac who owns a ferarri dealership to fall madly in love with me.
    I wonder which will happen first?

    ;) -Jerry
