I have an easy time guessing that everyone here dreams about hunting one of everything in Africa, I was wondering if anyone on here has done it? If so I'd love to hear about how many safaris you've done, photos of trophy rooms of course, etc. Minus a couple of the unusual species like porcupine I tried to list most of the animals (courtesy of AfricanSky). Let me know if I missed any.

I'm trying to figure out this list. Are you talking about just Southern Africa? Because there are many that are missing.
civet, honey badger, serval, cape grysbok, sharp grysbok

If you were to hunt all 56 animals or so how much would you guess it would cost in just trophy fees ,:cry: 250,000$?

You can certainly put me down for not wanting to hunt ALL of the animals on a list. Assuming I had the time and the money and all four colors of springbuck walked out and stood there for me, I suppose I would shot them ... I just wouldn't ever take the time to hunt down all four so I could check them off a list.

If I had the time and money that it would take to complete that list (and I think your $250,000 for trophy fees is pretty low), I would focus on hunting as many different places as possible and never worry if got both zebras and one of those little whatchamacallits :)!

We all can dream! I'd guess to hunt one of everything, taxidermy, the actual hunt cost, trophy fee's, etc could easily reach a million dollars.

Big 5 on the low side:

Rhino-80k
Elephant-20k
Lion-15k (South African)
Leopard-10k
Buffalo-10k

Total 135k (This is if you watch for deals. Rhino info may be a little old with all the poaching going on.)

We'll exclude the black rhinos as thats like a 300,000$ price tag and very few hunts.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
