Few picks of animals on bait, any one still interested in a night hunt?
Still have some permits available if any one is interested...... Critters are hitting the bait hard.
Very good offer.
Great price. Thanks for posting!
Great offer. I have booked a hunt like this for July 2020 with an AH outfitter. You are exciting me, only 1 year to wait. Its torture.
MB verry exciting hunt.... Totally different experience. We Had a great night....
OMG cant believe I have exactly 1 year to wait. That looks so awesome. I have no bush pig but all the night predators and porcupine. This is a small portion of a multi area 20 day hunt. Time moves slow, please keep them pics coming.
In regards to loads for the 7 x 57 and the 375 are solids the better option and if so do you load down for slower velocities for night critters?
Stephen, I used the outfitter’s .243 with a silencer and we had great success on the night hunts. They use soft bullets and there was not a problem with pelt damage. The loads were factory ammo, not reduced loads.
I have used reduced loads in a 30/06 with solids in Africa too! They were super accurate and again damage to the animal was minimal.
Thanks so much for your help. So I am assuming the outfitters 243 was loaded down to sub sonic to silence?
I take that back I used a .223 with a silencer. We used PMP ammo. Not that you couldn’t use .243 Win loaded down. The ammo was a soft bullet not a full metal jacket. We used a over/under shotgun for the genet cats.
Thanks for your help
Good day Stephen
Yes we use. 223 or. 243 and even down loads on the 7x57 slow heavy bullet you can use the. 375 solid as well but all hunters tend to be more accurate with the smaller calibers.
Most important advice I can give you is don't shoot unless you 100% sure of the shot. If you miss the animal will most likely never return in your hunt.
Hope this helps if you need more advice please feel free.
Well, with great insight from enysse on his past hunt, and superb followup from Dawie, even while in the field, I pulled the trigger on this hunt and I am heading over in late Aug thru early Sept next month.
I am thrilled to be heading back to Africa this year as I was not sure I could handle waiting another 12 months. I have not night hunted, and only seen some of these critters during the day by chance, or when taken by another hunter. I hope that like turkey hunting in the states, snoring attracts game because this hunt will test my fortitude and CPAP certified snoring volume!!! LOL I will certainly be doing a report, and if not too computer challenged, maybe some real-time updates like I loved seeing from johhnyblues leopard hunt.
Your a lucky guy. I have same type hunt for July 2020. Looking forward to your report?
Thanks Mark. Truly excited.
@Mort Hill you are going to have a great time! Dawie will make sure you have excellent trip!
