i'm curious if you were given big sums of money and could afford any hunt but only one hunt, what would that ultimate hunt be?


so that's that's question to my fellow AH members, what would be your dream hunt ???

A two year hunt across Africa trying to get as many different species as possible, much like Roosevelt collecting for a museum.

I would take:
7x57mm
300 H&H/300WM
375 H&H
404 Jeff
500 Jeff
12ga

Well first, it would have to be with three or four good friends, also hunting. Not too long, say eight days. Definitely a remote tented camp in a wild concession with lion roaring and hyena whooping at night. Lowveld area with baobabs, jess and mopani bush. Dry dusty time of year, nice and hot, no mosquitoes but of course there have to be tsetse flies. Buffalo, zebra, impala and bushbuck on the ticket, and a few birds for the menu. Also lots of interesting game tidbits on the menu, and really good Cape wines. Country not too important provided all the above are met.

Thats a great answer!!!

Imagine going on a safari like roosevelt and his son kermit did that lasted months and harvesting 512 animals
17 lions
29 zebras
9 giraffe
27 gazelles
11 elephant
7 cheetah
8 hippopotamus
2. ostriches
4 crocodiles
10 Buffalo
3 Leopard
And many more..

Best part he didn't even have to pay for it, it was paid by the Smithsonian museum, can't get any better than that!

Something along the lines of Masai buffalo and all the indigenous plains game-gerenuk, grant, Roberts, tommie, lesser kudu, fringe eared oryx, one of those cool little kirks dik dik, whatever else we can track up...
would also love to hunt a giant leopard somewhere, anywhere

Hmmm, we did a full month last year and it just flew by. I would have to say a 28 day full bag Safari in a remote area. I would like it to be an area where the lion can be a tracking hunt and there is an honest chance at a +70# elephant. The target buffalo would be an old broken down scrum cap. Leopard over bait in the daylight. I don’t really care to shoot a rhino. Does that hunt even exist at any price anymore?

I’m hopefully planning to do lion & elephant so my dreams after that would be polar bear and mountain nyala but probably won’t happen.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.
