Hello All. I am looking forward to learing a lot from eveybody on this great site. 3 of us have booked our First trip to RSA for next June.............so I know I have alot yet to learn as this the first trip for any of us..
Well you have come to the right place. This sight has every thing you need. Just about every question you have has been answered on this sight. If you can't find your question then ask and someone will answer it for you. There are tons of great people on here more than willing to help.
So where are you hunting, who are you hunting with, animals on your list, and when are you going back? Because you will want to go back! Start planning now!
Thanks for the support. We will leaving from Dulles on June 24 Hunting w/ Kubusi Safari. The animal list (as of now) includes impala, blesbuk, springbok, warthog, wildebeest, and kudu. We are now doing our research on taxidermist, shipping, brokers, etc......so much to look at
I think you will generally find excellent animals...for the list of animals you provided. Warthog length of tusks can vary greatly....and so can kudu horn length. But you should be fine. If Bob Puckett was logged in....I know he has a good person he could set you up with on taxidermy and shipping. You can always go to members list and email him. His taxidermy person was Umlindi Taxidermy firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to AH fearnot4me! if you need any help with Taxidermist or shipping info feel Free to PM me and I will let you know how I did it, saved a bundle I'm not sure where Kubusi Safari is located I hunted on the East Cape Great Taxidermist and Great Shippers. Good luck on your hunt and keep us posted. By the way I'll be back hunting on the East Cape in June as well.
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!
