Bow hunted in The Free State area with Blackthorn Safaris and Outfitter Alex Goss. The best walk, spot, stalk, crawl, sneak, and peak hunting of my life. I am a hunter. Bow, gun, long range, etc. This Ranch has opportunities for it all. I harvested this old bull, a 43+ inch Sable, a magical Eland, a Waterbuck, and a couple cute warthogs. I focused on bow hunting until the last day when it started raining. I switched to a rifle and sneaked within 180 yards of a huge Black wildebeest. The accommodations, the food, the staff all were amazing. We had an absolutely a flawless trip. Thank you to Alex Goss who basically walked me through every part of the entire process: pretravel, travel, paperwork, flight plans, overnights, transportation, etc. As the outfitter Alex guided others but set me up with the perfect PH, Vella Brink. Vella was amazing. He asked me the first day not only what species I wanted to hunt, but also how I wanted to hunt. He ask specific questions about trophy size, situational hunting, archery, gun, back up, etc. The great thing is he listened and a couple times during our hunt he called me off saying, "that's not what you said you are looking for", or "that's not the way you want to harvest that animal, let's keep looking." Amazing!
