Just a new guy from Arkansas. Been lurking around on here from time to time, reading about big bores and Africa.
Thanks guys. I mostly hunt whitetail and have always thought that my first destination hunt would be Africa, but I just got back from a vacation in Colorado and saw my first elk. This may have changed things.
I did some looking today. Looks like elk might be possible for around 1k. Probably not in a good area, but I would be happy just making the trip. How much does Africa actually cost? Without cats, buffalo, or the other really expensive animals?Welcome to AH Whetstone. Elk hunting had been a dream of mine since 1975. The cost of said hunt was always the issue. By chance we (my sons and I) ran into a guy that stated "the cost of an Elk hunt and hunting in Africa was about the same." We laughed it off then did a little research. Guess what, he was right. Kudu weigh +/- 700 lbs. and make an impressive trophy but we had another 5 animals to boot. Do some research on the subject and soon you will be on your way to Africa.
