    species in the caprivi... what you shouldn't leave behind.

    Red lechwe is common in the river areas and it is a beautiful animal. I hunted there two years ago, and it was quite common there. Definitely is a good plains game to combine with other dangerous game.

    Hunting Websites - Price List Posted vs Enquire for Prices

    In my opinion, in the internet era, when all the hunters compare... it is fair game from the outfitters to publish their pricelist, and keep the prices fixed all season long. Having the "hidden" pricelist and sending to each different clients makes people feel cheated... like if maybe they could...

    Mejor Destino para la Caza del Bufalo

    Pese a que no es un destino tan "salvaje" como tanzania o Zambia, yo acabo de regresar de cazar mi bufalo en Sudafrica con Spitskop Safaris, ya que Sudafrica tiene la ventaja de que solo pagas si matas, y los precios son razonables, ya que por 9000€ (unos 12.000 USD) tienes tu bufalo con tu...

    My first Buffalo Hunt : Any good Advices ???

    Yes i restored it in Spain The old woodstock was cracked... and i had no confidence with a big caliber like this one... so i bought a really beautifull turkish walnut blank (wood piede), and send it to the woodstock maker. I also send the iron parts to the gunsmisth, and make all the...

    Thanks Enysse; I love these old rifles.... i hope it will performance well in the hunt. This rifle was bought in an auction in London, and it was not as beautifull as is now, after the restoration process suffered during last year. I tested it in Europe, during last weeks... and it is...

    My first Buffalo Hunt : Any good Advices ???

    Luckily my last speed test of this weekend with some more powder and different manufacturers, gave me 2090 ft/sec which is a much more nice speed... and much more energy. I agree with you, that my first load were too soft, the caliber allows me much more energy with other powders. And i still...

    .270 Winchester for plains game

    Today one of our clients hunted a great kudu bull with a 270 Win. He insisted in the caliber. Perfect shot, just behind the shoulder... and we tracked the bull for half a kilometer trough the thicest bush of the area... even with a perfect shot. Definitely... you can hunt almost all the...

    My first Buffalo Hunt : Any good Advices ???

    I will do my best Nyati, i am confident about this. Hunting in a big fenced area, is not as "pure" as a completely wild buffalo, but with this size of farm for me is fair hunting as well. I am not really interested in a huge bull, i am looking for a mature bull, hard boss, and a challenging...

    My home insurance covers them meanwhile the rifles are at home... but not travelling abroad, and only fire or stolen, but not damages. Also i asked airlines insurance, and they cover a very low amout of money based on weight... so it is a ridiculous insurance, and they don´t allow to...

    Ultimate Springbok Rifle

    I hunted many of them with 300 WM in the Kalahari meanwhile i was hunting plains game, just because 300 WM is a good all around caliber for medium sized Plains Game, and it has flat trajectory. As you can imagine you are over caliber with 300 WM When i decide to hunt only springboks , my...

    9.3x62 or 300 Weatherby for African Safari

    I agree defintely with Ray. Caliber is more or less a "free" choice, because you can do the job quite well with both calibers... BUT the correct bullet selection is a MUST. Any caliber with a wrong bullet will send you to the failure. African big game is though, really hard to kill. No...

    first time africa trip

    South Africa is probably the best place for a beginner to start with a Plains game Safari. Plenty of species and affordable prices. For example : Safari 8 days 1x1 (7 real hunting days) ; in Northern Cape , Kimberley. With the following trophies : 1 Kudu Bull, 1 Gemsbok, 1 Zebra, 1 Blesbok...

    Hi "seattlesetters" ; i can help you in the Springbok monster ram. Our farm is in the Eastern Cape, in Kimberley area, in the South of Kalahari deset, maybe the best place in South Africa for Springboks and orix, the two main desert species. The area is plenty of springbok herds, of hundreds of...

    .404 Jeffery

    Yes... you are right. Is a Jeffery with mauser 98 action. I think it is small ring... so the barrel starts without any "step" from the action. As you can see in this other pic. I am relly happy with this rifle. When i bought it, it was not as beautifull as is now... after some work on it...
