I grew up in the country on a dirt road. My grandmother had 110 acres or so and I would walk out the house and go shoot squirrels with my .410 at 11 years old. I soon started joining family hunting turkey and deer with dogs. I didn’t miss a day hunting deer with dogs for 10 years. So my background is small game, whitetail, and turkey. I have been on hunts where 80 deer were killed on one hunt. I had no problem or reservations about shooting multiple animals in a day when I went to Africa this year. It was an awesome hunt and I feel it would get better each time I go. Do your research and if not for this forum I wouldn’t have gone. I have told several people about this forum. My next hunts in Africa will be in different areas but I can already tell that track hunts would be absolutely awesome. Basically my waterbuck hunt turned into a track hunt after I made a low shot this year. It was a fantastic experience and ended with me shooting the waterbuck while the dog was baying him. In my mind that hunt took me back to my routes. Each hunt was like a trip in and of itself. And the eastern cape kind of reminded me of what i have seen in my life of reminisce of the old south. That was cool as well. I don’t want to knock solo hunting but a group hunt where folks can enjoy the hunt together is hard to beat. I solo hunt turkeys all the time and still would rather go with family, friends to make memories.
