    @bowbrother ,

    I haven't hunted with Pawprint, but I have hunted with Dries Visser and Limcroma. Had a good safari with Dries, but for a serious bowhunter, Limcroma is going to be very hard to beat. I was very particular in selecting outfitters looking at only those with reputations for knowing their stuff when it comes to bow hunting. Limcroma will exceed your expectations at all levels. These PHs are all bow hunters themselves, and they cover all of the small details that can really make a difference for bow hunters.

    Just because an outfit offers bow hunting, It doesn't mean they know how to do it right. Make a list of goals that are most important to the type of hunt you are looking for and compare that to what each outfitter can offer. Ask lots of questions in regard to property sizes and amounts, if the properties are bow hunting only, if the PH guiding you is a bow hunter, and the trophy quality you can expect. Any of the outfitters you listed will work with you to put a great package together. It should come down to who can offer you the experience and animals you are looking for. Check lots of references from other bow hunters. Pm me anytime if you have questions.

    dave thanks for your input .had it narrowed down to dries and lincroma (both whose reviews are always outstandings on site) looking at paw prints because close to airport .. could save possibly 2 travel days vs going to limpopo area .that 4 plus hour drive from airport to limpopo on my last trip truly was the worst part of the trip.thought was going to meet the lord a few times when van tried to pass slower vehicles and playing chicken with the on coming vehicles .trying to get info if paw prints has elevated their bow hunting experience to that of dries or lincroma.thanks bowbrother

    I hunted pawprints last season they have a few bow hunting only properties and beleive that they just bought a new place this year for bow only. I did not bow hunt but my buddy did and he took quite a few nice ones with his bow.

    I have bowhunted Paw Print and Dries Visser and I would try Limcroma from my experience with both of them. I have not hunted with Paw Print for 4 years , but have been to Visser's the last two years and it was way better, no comparison but in my opinion Vissers was over hunted. The property never gets a break for months. I have also bowhunted numerous other places and one that is bow only that was very good was Bushmans Safaris, I also have had excellent bowhunts with Tsala Safaris.

    Is Pawprint still a member here? Haven't seen them around. Pawprint used to post some good deals.
