    Hunt to South Africa

    First, I would like to start by saying thanks for reading this topic. If I was asked the question in April “would you like to hunt in Africa”, I would have replied “someday”. However, life can take a sudden change and someday becomes now. South Africa is a wonderful place, in fact it’s a hunter’s paradise. It resembles Southern Arizona in many ways. My son, brother in law, friend and I booked a hunt with Crusader Safaris and it was absolutely everything I / we could have hoped for. We flew to Port Elizabeth (PE) from Phoenix, the travel was the worst part, total flying time is roughly 24 hours (not including lay-overs). In case you’re wondering PE is on the Southern Tip of South Africa http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Elizabeth the outfitter arranged for us to stay the night at a Guest House to rest. The next day a guide picked us up and we headed to the Lodge that was a 2 hour drive. As we drove to the lodge, a pack of baboons were spotted and shots quickly rang out… the baboons we encountered on the hunt were very wild animals that are smart and move fast and make all kinds of noise…. After getting settled in at the lodge and taking a few shots with the guide’s rifles, we headed out. We split up with two awesome guides. Within an hour, we spotted a herd of Impala, the stock was on and I was fortunate to harvest this impala with a 180 yds shot that concluded day one. Warthog taken by my friend. Duiker taken by my brother in law. Day two: I brought my bow and decided to sit in a blind. Oranges were placed and before we knew it a pack of monkeys came in and I let one have it…. As we sat in the blind, a group of baboons came in, a large male came in and I let him have it…. Short video of the shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4GwU4nU3pN8&feature=youtu.be this concluded the morning hunt. In the afternoon, I sat another blind. A nice Kudu bull finally came in, unfortunately I thought my camera was recording but it was not… Day three: during the previous days, I explained the beloved Coues deer to the guide. He thought I would like to hunt Bush Buck… these are skittish little animals that, as their name states, live in thick brush. We would try (and succeed) to shoot one with my bow, spot and stalk… this took all day and finally right at dark it all came together… Days four and five: plans were made to head to another area to focus on spring buck, gemsbok and kudu, this would have us staying at a guest house… which was a great experience. Spring buck I shot, my son shot a cull spring buck. Bro in law and friends spring buck Kudu Gemsbok Day 6 – wanted my son to shoot a warthog (female can be shot for a very reasonable price), the wind was miserable and after glassing for some time we finally glassed up some hogs and the stock was on. While walking to the group, spotted another herd and my son made a great shot…. While driving out, this hog was routing in a field, we stopped and it never noticed us…. I got out with my bow in hand and let an arrow fly… see the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGQHI3KZAgo&feature=youtu.be thing just dropped in its tracked, right through the front shoulder into the heart. Last day- I still had a blesbuck on my list, I “traded” the male for a female and a female wildebeest … blesbuck not my most favorite animal to hunt… but I shot this female, The wildebeest was a blast, these things are wild… spotted a herd had to crawl about 100 yds and my son made a perfect shot… more pics from a wonderful trip
