I can add very little to Michael’s sound advice other than, that at 74, buffalo hunting in Africa is not going to be a walk in the park, especially if you want to do it the walk-and-stalk way. You MUST get as fit as you can. It is difficult to place a good shot if you are out of breath to the point of collapse. Most likely you will find yourself in dense bush with bad light.
Hi SJN, I sincerely appreciate the advice on being fit and to practice shooting in order to have a successful hunt. Please know that there are men who are 73 years old, believe it and act and perform accordingly and there are men who are 73 years young and believe that they are as young as they act . Among other physical activities, I harvest, cut and split wood to heat my house and my camp because it keeps me young and keeps my wife warm. Please find below a photo of my lovely wife of 30+ years and a photo of my 10 cord wood pile, both of which I am exceedingly proud of. Rest assured that I will be fit and competent this year and again next.
