Never hunted Africa but am doing some research and kicking some thoughts around. What I want to know is who has shot a cow buffalo and how was the hunt? I assume a buffalo hunt is a buffalo hunt regardless of the type or size your hunting. I don't mind shooting small or female animals at all. I just drove over 3,000 miles and spent ten days on a mountain and shot a mule deer doe so I'm about hunting not necessarily big animals. I've seen where cows can be less than half the cost of a big bull and personally I would just as soon have more money for more hunting. Don't get it wrong, with unlimited funds I would be a trophy hunter but at this time I feel my money is better invested in the journey itself. Any of you guys think this way or have a desire to shoot cows?
