G’day y’all.

English is not my first language so I mix and match wildly as you can see.

Anyhoo,newbie here with zero experience of hunting in Africa.

Unlike most,it seems,it’s never been a dream of mine to hunt there,but I might tag along with a friend.

I do find the calibers and guns associated with hunting in Africa interesting though.

While I have not seen one in real life,oryx seems to be the most beautiful animal there.To my eyes.

The Warthog is anything but,but it is an animal I’d like to hunt,along with croc.

And ostrich.

One friend mentioned that he wants to hunt in Namibia,so I’ve been on an internet spree to learn about the country,it’s history,animals and hunting there.

Guess that’s about it for now,stupid questions to follow later.

Have fun reading.

I think you are saying Warthog are not anything. Maybe they are not highly prized but I think they are cool! I don't collect trophies bit of the 10 animals I hunted in Africa I thought Warthog were a funny looking animal on a good kind of way.

@Bob Nelson 35Whelen speaks highly of his trip to Namibia and his guide.

Sorry,my shite grasp of the English language is failing me yet again.
I tried to say they are considered ugly,but I find them really interesting and it is the animal I would like to hunt above all others.

Hello (5mm?) Velo Dog,do you have bow hunting as an option at Khomas?

Hunting with the Bow is possible here at Khomas, we like to walk and stalk and with the Bow you can be successful on Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Steinbok, Warthog, Impala and many more antelopes.
Please let us know if you have any further questions regarding hunting in Namibia
With best regards
Philip

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
