Free range Buffalo hunts can be had in North Eastern South Africa.
The APNR has a very healthy Buffalo population. 1000's of Buffaloes and small quotas make for some fantastic Buffalo hunting.

yip, nothing wrong with that. RSA buffalo can be just as interesting to hunt, perhaps more...I have hunted Zimbabwe for 10 years 'back in the day' and that was not always the best hunts...

Really? It's because of rules like this that hunting gets a bad name. I prefer my Steer burger to be as close to the source as possible, and I think every anti would as well. Fresher is better. For once, the antis and I are on the same page. Long live fresh! (Or so I tell my wife).

Well I was close to a Steers last trip top, so you should be happy. :p

The Fire Extinguishers are a nice touch.

@CDorroh good buff hunting in Zambia let me know if you want more info

Sometimes the brain is slower than the fingers. I corrected my anger management problem.

There are certainly good Buffalo to be hunted in Zambia.

Good to see some banter over what began as a 'rookie' question!

Have to agree with Jan, there are some great un-fenced areas within South Africa. Plus, you have added benefit of stability.

The APNR probably has some of the most well managed huntable Buffalo populations in Africa today. Free roaming Buffalo in an open big 5 system with an off take so relatively small that it doesn't impact on numbers or quality of animals at all. I have been fortunate and hunted some fine Buffalo areas in my 24 years as a PH , many of them in the different countries north of us and beyond. The Buffalo hunts in the APNR are in a class of their own. The absence of overhunting is striking.
In the end its about personal preference. What do YOU want to get out of it.


Happy hunting

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
