Given a recent thread started by Mokore Safaris in Zimbabwe and the considerable number of responses, I am curious what companies/outfitters offer "management" Cape Buffalo hunts. To clarify, I admire those people who can point to a truly trophy Buffalo on their wall. Yes, I'm impressed by it's 40"-46" spread. However, I am more impressed by the fact that they spent the money and actually hunted Cape Buffalo then the size of the trophy. Having said that, I did not, nor will I, go to Africa with the requirement of "making the book". I understand the attraction to hunting dangerous game. I intimately know the thrill and adrenaline of danger, having spent most of my adult life in professions where violence is an ever present reality. Harloo offers a Cape Buffalo bull 37" and under for $7,500 (relatively short hunt). Several other companies offer deals under $10,000 occasionally. My Cape Buffalo dreams are not necessarily a bull with a wide spread. I am fascinated by Buffalo with a single broken horn. Old, battle-scarred daggaboys past breeding age (and a little bitter about it). I'm not cheap. I am fortunate (or unfortunate considering how this situation came to be) to afford most of what I want. I just don't see a point of paying for a hunt where the outfitter is focused on a "trophy" bull when my dreams are so much simpler. I see so much character in old bulls, particularly with the aforementioned broken horn. If anybody offers this kind of hunt, please contact me. Given previous comments, there are more than a few people interested. Also, I understand "scrum cap" bulls are popular with European hunters.
