    Hello Everyone,

    I will be making my first trip to South Africa on April 4th, 2014. I will land in Johannesburg and will be renting a car. I would like to go hunting mainly for a Gemsbok. (For a shoulder mount/+Hide) I am there for about 2 weeks so I can fit it in when ever during the trip. I am not really looking for a 4 animal package as I see many people offer. I would mainly be happy with just the Gemsbok and maybe something else small.

    Anyways if any outfitters see this you can PM me and I can provide more details.
    AND
    If anyone has any suggestions it is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Raymond

    I would say give pieter at paw print an email.He is a few hours away from the airport and could help you out I bet.He is already hunting so it maybe better for you to try and contact him.Good luck in searching a place out.

    Hello everyone!

    Thanks for all the replies! I have responded to everyone. One thing I would like to add is that I will be traveling with my wife and she will be observing.

    My next question is to find out how do I go about bringing back my trophy to Canada?

    Hi there Raymond. Pity you are only going to Johannesburg and not Cape Town. I will send you a PM with a couple of ideas, especially for your wife as well.

    Well raymond enjoy hunting the east cape with tootabi.You may just want to look at a springbuck to if you like using the skins for a rug.They are one of the nice rugs I have seen plus make a nice skull mount to.They are a nice add on to any hunt and a good value for the$$$$ you pay for them.Good luck on your trip.

    I will mainly be hunting bush pig and common bush duiker but if time allows I may seek down to the coast and chase some blue duiker as well.
