The whole system is important as said by Skinner above. Arrow length, draw weight and point weight. Arrow spine is one of the most important parts of great arrow flight and many people ignore it, then wonder why they cant get great accuracy. I am here to help anytime.
I dont know either, i just dont find them appealing to the eye. You sound like the type of guy who is very fond of goats. Im not sure you are aware but there are several subspecies so not all have a true ribbon style horn as you say. My dislike of them has nothing to do with grouchy, if...
I am going after Gredos in January. I guess i'm not really explaining my question/statement.
Lots of people seem to see Markhor as the "holy grail" of hunting. To me, there are a lot prettier animals and prettier places to hunt (like BC for your goat hunt). To each his own, i just don't...
I will start off by saying I enjoy all hunting and would never criticize or otherwise be negative about someone's choice in hunting. That being said, I don't get why hunting Markhor is so cool?
The animal itself looks like a stinky goat to me (you know they have to smell awful), the...

What is your draw length? What draw weight are you comfortable with? There are a lot of variables to consider but all pretty simple. I am strictly a bowhunter sonif you have any specific questions please feel free to message me as well.
You most likely wont sit in the blind all day anyhow. Almost all operators have take a mid day break from the blind which you could use to drive around and spot game. The other thing is african animals are not like north american animals, you wont find them out at waterholes at daylight...

Wilbur Smith book(s). - paperback preferred
Small journal and pen/pencils
Good video camera
Pre loaded strategy/word games on your phone
Pocket knife to whittle and what not
Big fluffy socks to...
Anyone have any pet peeves when talking about hunting africa? A few of mine are:
1. When visiting hunters call africans "natives".

Cash is king. If i had any history with outfitter i would absolutely do it for the discount and to help him.
I have been a booking agent for almost ten years now and the only time ive ever been screwed was by a "friend" hunter who used to post here, never an outfitter.
If you want to hear something unpopular but smarter....just buy a flatskin rug already done. Thats coming from a guy that has two rugs from "his" zebras. Unless yours has some super awesome markings, id just buy a flatbskin rug and save the money. I wish i would have.
