    Got my Kudu home and on the wall

    Well done and beautiful animals! It’s quite refreshing to hear positive feedback on taxidermists. We only use bullseye and Craig is a great guy to deal with. I think I might have seen that kudu during a visit there a couple of months ago! Kind regards Aj Fourie

    Our campfire has started

    New old guy from the Rockies

    Welcome to the site, Swakopmund is a beautiful area, I’ve only been there once but it was a great experience and a well kept and clean place (at least all the parts we saw). Looking forward to seeing some reports come through on your current planned hunts! Kind regards Aj Fourie.

    New Aus Member

    Hi Dan and welcome to the forum! I‘ve been fortunate enough to visit AUS but I haven’t hunted there. We did go out crabbing close to Port Douglas and I remember the little boat (dingi) just being big enough to carry two people, some crab nets and a rather large ice chest filled with cold...

    March 20 SA Planned Protest.....

    I was keeping an eye on the news yesterday and managed to get to O.R Thambo international without any problems. The people flying in had no problems what so ever except for a layover issue in Addis Ababa. There were a couple of incidents but nothing to lead to a shut down of any kind and they...

    There might be varied opinions on this one but you can have a look at news24 South Africa. We have better news channels although I’m not sure how much Afrikaans you’ve picked up on.

    Big bore recoil

    I’m with Colorado on this one, get a gun that you can shoot comfortably, a 375 H&H is great and it’ll do the job.

    Unplanned Dangerous Game Hunting?

    Many things can happen while you are on Safari and Kevin and BRICKBURN both have very good points. Usually on wild areas we have a set quota. On privately owned properties you might see something like what you describe, but you have to ask yourself a couple of questions first. Is it truly a good...

    My wife is wanting to attend some Christmas markets in Europe in December. Where can I hunt in December?

    You can hunt in Africa and she can shop somewhere nice in Europe, afterwards you can meet up with her, this way you don’t have to walk down every little passage… If we arrange this well enough we could even make it look like a kidnapping situation and she can dig around for a randsom that we‘ll...

    MOZAMBIQUE: Has Anyone Hunted With Chasseurs De Moçambique?

    There are a bunch of good outfitters and professional hunters that are not members of PHASA for various reasons. There’s also other organisation to be affiliated with like S.A. Hunters to name but one for South Africa alone and the list continues. PHASA has also had some troubled members in...

    How To Choose An Outfitter?

    Hi Mark The term “bigger or smaller outfitters” could be very deceiving. a Big outfit could be an outfitter with many ph’s and clients running all over to get their animals and a client could potentially end up just being a number basically. a Big outfitter could also be someone who has been...

    Shot distance

    We do quite a bit of hunting in Limpopo in the Waterberg area, obviously terrain will have an effect but we seldomly take shots over 120 yards on plains game, with some exceptions as mentioned by @Desperatezulu. On buffalo you want to get a bit closer so maybe around that 50-70 yard bracket...

    Judging Kudu

    That second bull won’t go to deep fifties, I’d put him in middle fifties but yes, definitely the older one between the two and he displays beautifully as well!

    Judging Kudu

    The second bull in my opinion is almost ready, but I would give him more time as well.

    Judging Kudu

    Field judging a kudu bull has various aspects to be taken into consideration and depth of the curl, length of the tips and thickness of the base has an impact but so does horn mass and even the area that you are hunting in, some areas are known for better trophy quality than other areas. I...

    How far do you have to travel to even hunt?

    I’m very fortunate to live on a place where I can walk out the door and hunt some species although I must say, the further away I can get, the better! I have some kudu, bushbuck, blesbuck, Duiker and Steenbuck around my house but I prefer just enjoying having them there! That being said, we live...

    What animal to shoulder mount

    Hi trperk In my opinion I would go for a European on the kudu, a Sable has a beautiful mane and the presents great on a wall. But as @Mwag said it depends, if you get a great kudu a sable can have a classic clean look as a European as well? You have time to make this decision, wait until after...

    CZ 550 375 H&H

    I have the CZ 550 in a .458 Lott and it is a reliable rifle, I had to work the bolt a little bit initially to get it a little smoother but I have been happy with it since the day I bought it, and as mentioned above it’s a robust working gun!! Does a backup rifle need to be pretty? In my opinion...

    How dangerous are the ‘Big Five’?

    Hi Rubi, @BeeMaa said it well and with DG hunting there will always be risks involved. All being said I don’t think that it should discourage you at all, if it is something that you want to do you can make it work. We have all heard or seen the horror stories yes, and some members here have...
