Is that not the area that has been plagued with problems with the govt and native hunters, transients,

Scarcity of game. Issues with landowners etc etc.?

Absolutely not. Probably the best anti-poaching unit in Africa. No settlers. Plenty of game. Over 1,000,000 acres of the best hunting in Africa. Extremely well run with competent Outfitters and PHs. The manager will tolerate zero BS.

It is not to be confused with Bubiana.

Mike, thanks for your concise but very precise post re status of the BVC - well put!

And next Mike, buffalo tags all taken for 2013 unfortunately but it may be possible to upgrade closer to the time, after the shows, may be some postponements, cancellations.
Really though, these hunts are designed for the first timer, or father/son, (and Africa nuts knowing a good deal when they see it!) and gives them the opportunity to take a diverse bag in a huge area amongst the Big Five. Very rare to be able to do that these days.

Cheers,
Ade

Hi Ade
Thanks for the quick response. I think I have hunted in that area a couple times? Is this the old Lemco concession?
If so what a great area!
What's the chances of taking a Honey Badger or African Wildcat?
I'm one of those guys who just loves to hunt, especially when it's a good deal!
Thanks
Mike

Mike,

Yes, the old Lemco indeed, don't know how far back you hunted there but it has changed immensely over the last 7 or 8 years. As night hunting is not a problem there is a hi success rate on small nocturnal critters. I would say 99% chance of wildcat and 85% chance of honey badger. Succes on these species is directly related to the hours spent at it at night, covering ground, and being properly equipped - bring a 22 mag or whatever you normally use at home on similar game - i..e. familiarity with the tool at night with a lamp, small target, quick acquisition, etc.

Ade

I hunted Buffalo with HHK, Wayne Williamson was the PH. I also hunted Plainsgame after an Elephant hunt in the Campfire area with Alec Strauss. I remember driving through the gate and having a monster Leopard walking along side the road in broad day light 50 yards from the vehicle!
can you send me more information on this hunt and what you feel would be the best dates to come for small cats? I was there in February last time so I know it can be hot that time of year? My real dream is the elusive Serval?
I would shoot some of the Plainsgame also.
my email is mrdaley57@aol.com
thanks

Ade,

This a very good offer. I am not normally a proponent of 2 by 1 hunts; however with the amount of quality game on BVC this would be a great hunt to do with a friend, son, wife, father at an excellent price.

Congratulations to the hunters that choose this deal.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
