Preface: The animal that least excited me on my list before I came to Africa is the bushbuck. I have read how hard they are to hunt but I never fell in love with the idea. Prior to day 6 I discussed changing the plan with Wik. Since I will never be a man who can afford a buffalo hunt, I asked about hunting Blue Wildebeest. I wanted to hunt them the way they hunt buffalo. Stalk very close. Wik agreed and we came to an agreement on the exchange. Day 6 we would hunt for my "poor mans buffalo".
Great report - don't ever say "never be a man who can afford a buffalo hunt" - that just isn't right. Never close the book on a dream - you are a young man, who knows - lots of things can happen, and the price of some buffalo hunts are actually coming down. I thought the same thing way a while back - but actually that Buffalo hunt may become a reality.
that sounds like a plan.Byron: Glad to see you and your wife had a great time on your first African Safari. Wik and his family, along with the staff at @Game 4 Africa Safaris do a great job. A hunt at their place really is great value.
Hopefully when I get back to Louisiana in November we can get together and share a beer and some stories.
