    Spear Safaris had a Hunt Booked for a specific Buffalo Bull, estimated at 42", in a fenced area. The Hunter cannot make the Hunt anymore so now this animal is up for grabs.
    He was sold for $12 000 + day fees of $400 per day excl 14% Vat.
    It is on a private property close to the town of Phalaborwa in Limpopo.
    A deposit will be required to secure the deal.

    Anyone interested can contact me with offers. Picture below is of the bull, taken late last year.

    OK, I admit I'm dumb! What's the deal on wet or dry? And Spear, are you saying the cancelled hunter already had paid the $12000 trophy fee?

    As an sci measurer, the rules state a 60 day drying time. Horn doesn't typically shrink but skull bone does. A 42" buffalo corpse on the ground might only be a 40" or 40.5" buffalo as a European mount 60 days later. Thus, official scores require a delay before measuring may occur.

    No unfortunately I went on his word alone, and did not get a deposit, now I cannot award any discount based on the already paid deposit, $12 000 is what the trophy fee is, but i am prepared to look at offers now.

    How big of a fenced area for the hunt? I won't be able to do this hunt myself but I am sure it will help others in making a decision.

    The property is not very large in my eyes, about 1000 acres.
    Terrain is rugged in areas and Mopane Bushvelt, can be quite dense in places. No guarantees but you will see him sooner or later.

    We need to look at available dates this year, August is good, but other dates may also work. Pick up airport is Phalaborwa, or Hoedspruit.
