My family of 5 will be travelling to South Africa for the first time this July. We will be hunting with Hunt the Sun in two locations. I am bringing my bow and I will hire a rifle from them, as we will be spending a week of just travelling around South Africa. I plan to hunt: Warthog; Kudu; Nyala and Eland. The kids will hunt Springbok or Duiker. Still trying to decide on mounts as my wife is not keen on having them in the house...

Anyway nice to have a forum like this.

Welcome to AH ArmyVet! Have a great time with your family in Africa. By the time that that you and the kids are done with your hunt your wife may feel differently about having the trophies in the house… I say wait on the trophies for now, your decision in any case doesn't have to be made at this time.

Welcome!

Still trying to decide on mounts as my wife is not keen on having them in the house...

Tell her you want the warthog in the bedroom. Then compromise. :)

Welcome! And thank you for your service. Tell your wife she won't see them because their hides make them camouflaged.

Welcome and good luck on your hunt!

I know what you mean about the mounts. My wife was the same way until she saw one in person. Now she definitely wants her trophy mounted!

Welcome - perhaps your wife's thoughts on mounts may change when see sees a few critters up close. I was pleased mine did.

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.
