For me it's the quality of the hunt that matters most. If it's a challenging day in new country, I'm satisfied. I only tagged four animals this last trip, and already have multiple specimens of each on the walls. Didn't snap a cap on buffalo or kudu, both my preferred (but not imperative) objectives. The impala was my best yet (three others). Gemsbuck and springbuck were "okay" (3rd gemsbuck and 5th springbuck) and wildebeest was a mistake (put that one on the PH). Didnt shoot a lot of animals or anything fantastic but I still had a great time. It's very relaxing to not have any real objective for a change and just roll with whatever comes along. Makes for quality hunting. No pressure on me or the PH.BeeMaa agree with your last point - “concerned with the Quality of the animals..”. That is all I care about on any guided hunt. Food? As long as it’s enough to sustain my life for the week or 10 days i’m there and doesn’t make me violently ill - that’s good enough. I don’t go on any Hunt for the food and don’t expect good food in Camp - just like I don’t expect a trophy 40” buff in a restaurant (although I will enjoy both if encountered). I’ve been fortunate that I’ve never had “bad food” in a hunting Camp - but then my standards are very reasonable (even Low). The fun part of any meal in Camp - for me - is the conversation that takes place and what I learn form them (other hunters or the PH/Guide). Those “conversations” can Never be replicated anywhere else and just like the Hunt itself, they became part a unique And memorable experience.
