I‘m planning a buffalo hunt at Bubye Valley Conservancy, Zimbabwe. Who has hunted there and can tell me a bit about buffalo, i e did you see plenty, herds and single dagga boys? What areas did you hunt in, what do you think are the optimum areas for very old buffalo?

I‘m not interested in trophy size, the horns can be broken off. What I want is a buff around 12 years and older with a thick solid boss without gap in the middle.

Have you ever seen such old gentlemen at BVC, maybe you even have photos? Would love to read about your experiences regarding very old bulls at BVC.

I can PM you the email address of a gent who can give you the scoop.

Yes, he hunts the BVC professionally and one might worry about a possible conflict of interest, but this fellow’s integrity is beyond reproach.

With more than 7000 Buffalo you will have a good chance of finding what you are looking for.

Cape Buffalo is my Bucket List hunt. And I want to do it in Zim on a traditional hunting ground.

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!
