G'day guys, I'm curious to get some opinions from some of the african hunting veterans here about hunting africa. My wife and i have been talking lately about it a bit, in a couple years I'll be 30 and am thinking i might do a big trip for it. It'll either be to the states or to Africa. I grew up as a kid reading nothing but hunting books, many of them about africa and always wanted to hunt there like so many others. I always dreamed of a big 5 true foot safari type hunt but in reality I'm from very moderate means so the style of hunt I enjoy is to be honest, beyond anything I'll do in this life. Pretty well all my hunting is diy, do lots of backpack hunting which involves 10-30km days in the mountains at times and am comfortable living out of a sleeping bag and eating the bare bones of food. But i do see an upshot in that there has to be a close second. Maybe i won't hunt a buffalo stalking on foot through thick bush for days but would an eland hunt be something similar for example? Obviously minus the danger part though. I love the challenge of hunting more than anything else, i am a trophy hunter but not for score at all. At this stage bush stalking an old huge framed free range eland bull is at the top of my list maybe in namibia. What other species and also what countries can people suggest to get a true sense of free range african hard stalking and tracking to suit the budget of a very average joe? Appreciate the advice in advance.
