    July Bowhunting Safari

    Gear- My last hunt was with 49#. I used 400 spine arrows with total arrow weight of 500 gr. COC BH's. No problems with penetration- try to keep shots w/I 20 yds. Shot placement is key. Vitals are forward on African game. Take plenty of photos. You will throughly enjoy the Kruger tour...

    Does the perfect fixed blade for Africa exist? Whether it does or not, what should it look like?

    I have carried a simple Case 3" folding knife on person. Never really needed a knife in Africa. Skinners take care of animal skinning and meat after kills.

    Jet lag- how do you handle if?

    I have experienced worst jet lag as I have aged. Go earlier to allow body to acclimate to time change. Why to pro golfers going to Great Britain 2 weeks in advance of the British Open- to acclimate to time change which affects the body actions.

    30/06 165 grain

    I have read that the 165 gr. bullet is the optimum weight bullet for a .30 caliber rifle (30.06 or .308). As a side note I had to finish off a zebra with a .270. A 150 yd shot in the boiler room. Zebras are fairly thin-skinned animals.

    HUNTING Eland

    I have shot 2 elands with a bow. My first eland I hit high was a 20 yd, single lung shot. After 28 hours of chasing animal, I terminated hunt with a British .303. The second eland I shot was a double lung at 17 yd pass through. Animal expired in about 170 yds. I used a 62# compound with 500...

    CORRECTION: 2000# eland not 200# eland.

    Leopard and lion set-up

    Why would anyone hunt DG with mechanical BH and leave things to chance? I personally believe the only way to go is a fixed-blade COC BH. Just my 2-cents. For the record, I have killed 2000# water buff with a 65# bow and COC BH and have killed a 200# eland with a 62# bow with COC BH.

    Aside from Africa, what are some memorable guided hunts around the world that rival the experience of an African Safari?

    I think "Africa" is in its own league. Comparing Africa to other hunts is comparing apples to oranges. Other hunts are likewise in their own league.

    Elephant with a bow?

    I know bow hunters who have taken elephant and hippo with a bow. One hunter made a one-shot kill on an elephant. It is a doable hunt with the proper equipment and proper shot placement. I had a PH tell me that most elephant bow hunts ended with a gun.

    Warthog Questions

    I am right there with you with an affection for pig hunting. I have been fortunate to take feral hogs, Russian boar and warthog with my bow. In Africa, you can take as many animals as you want (non-permit species) as your wallet can handle. However, you can only import 2 warthogs. I did...

    Is It Big Enough?

    I am primarily a bowhunter but, I am considering a nilgai hunt in South Texas with a rifle. Most outfitters require a .300 magnum. I don't own a .300 magnum and not going to buy one. I have found an outfitter who will accept a hunter with a 30.06. Will be hunting over food plots. Shot...

    Trousers & Shirts - Black Out vs. Camo?

    The only animal that will probably spot you is a baboon "or maybe a vervet monkey). A baboon's sight will make a turkey's vision look like it is blind !
