    I just returned home from a 7 day hunt with Hunter Hill Safaris of Queenstown SA. I had a Great time hunted for 7 animals and shot 9 trophy's. I had a Great PH named Boyce he and the rest of the staff I would grade a ten on a ten scale. From the time I was picked up in East London to the time I returned back to East London I was treated Great. I was able to harvest a blesbuck, Red Hartebeest, Caracal, Common Reedbok, Springbuck, Black Wildebeest, Red Lechwe, Porcupine, and a Steenbok.The staff at Hunter Hill did everything to make your stay a great event. The food was 5 Star and all the equipment was the same. I have never seen as many animals as I saw at Hunter Hill, vast herds of Black Wildebeest and Blesbuck every day.I am sorry I do not know how to post pictures my self so I will send the pictures to Bob Puckett as soon as my son can clean them up..John W.

    great pics! I am taking a hard look at Hunters Hill for 2014, they sound like a real solid outfit. Caracal is one of the items I am after and I am curious how you got your cat?

    Redriver when you decide just let me know I try to cut the best deal I can for my friends here on AH! The Cats are hunted 3 ways by chance, by calling and by dogs trophy fee for the caracal includes dog handler and dogs. I would also like to hear how he got it as well, it wasn't even on his list :laughing: hard to turn one of those cats down though.

    yes, I corresponded with you a while back and got a very fair offer from Hunters Hill, I am after some specialty PG like Roan & blue duiker as well as caracal. I have not had a chance at a caracal in 5 trips so I was wondering how he got his cat. I assume with dogs, which is just fine. I am very close to locking in with them and expect to hear from them after the season. I was hoping they would be at Harrisburg this year and I could meet them in person but will see

    Congratulations on a great hunt!! What's that device on the end of your barrel? Is that a silencer?
