I attest to Seema's (Hi Seema!) post. Uganda offers great hunting and indeed some trophies are second to none. Hunting with GameTrails has produced 33" impalas and a 36 1/2" Waterbuck. A better Zebra skin can hardly be had anywhere in Africa. It has very large (Patterson's) eland as well as topi, and other plains game besides hippo, leopard and highly sought after East African sitatunga.
PH Kaka is a very experienced hunter with decades of hunting experience. Indiscriminate killing/poaching during late President Amin's time had almost killed off all game animals. He is solely responsible for restoring the game population to the point where the country has a very healthy animal population allowing for some great hunting. GameTrails was established by him about 14 yrs ago and numerous sportspeople have enjoyed hunts with him as well as his anecdotes of yesteryears! I am fortunate enough to have accompanied him on countless hunts.
Great for hunting and a paradise for sightseers indeed. One can meet our ancestors as well (on a side trip) - the great apes!
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.
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...
