    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.
