Welcome to AH
Welcome from a fellow hunter from North Dakota! I will be going on my first Safari for a Cape buffalo and Sable with Tsala Safaris in June!
I have been thinking about what you asked about outfitters and my advice would be before starting to look, sit down and write out what you want out of a safari. The experiences, the environment, animals to see and or hunt etc. Use your criteria when searching and talking with outfitters to find the one that provides what you are wanting. There are a lot of great outfitters out there and some to be avoided. Start with your criteria and go from there.
Welcome to AH from another Minnesotan! I am heading to South Africa for my third safari in June. Cape Buffalo is on the list with Nick Bowker Hunting. We've hunted with him before and had an outstanding time and experience. Very professional and high quality animals! Be happy to discuss with you.
Welcome from Chaska MN
Thanks, did your hunt feel like fair chase? We’re the animals self sustaining?

Yessir, the animals are alert and wary. The buffalo were definitely not tame, had a couple run ins with them that got my heart going. The herds of most the animals on the properties were all good numbers that contained cows, young, and trophy bulls. We hunted two different properties that weren't their home properties but based on what I was told by my PH, those properties you will really get a world class buffalo experience. They can accommodate anything you want and will bend over backwards to do so. Highly recommend!
Welcome to AH! We are sure you will find your dream buffalo.

We look forward to sharing our passion and continent with you!

Kind Regards,

Welcome to AH.
My advice would be to plan for a plains game hunt with an outfitter who also has buffalo on the property.
If you do that you can decide to shoot a buffalo or not after being there.....
Welcome to AH!
Good day Nutterman,

Good luck with the search and planning of your safari. I think its half the fun!!! Happy to answer any questions you might have. There are a lot of good outfitters on the forum so I'm sure you will be in good hands hunting with any of the.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
