Help With Location for First African Hunt
      14/08/07 05:19 AM

Your chance to ďtell me where to goĒÖIím looking for some help selecting the location for my first African hunt. Keep in mind that right now Iím in the research stage, planning to book for 2009, and Iím so uneducated in all of this that I donít even know if the animals Iíd like to hunt can be found in the same general area.

The list of animals Iím really interested in hunting is pretty short and I bet fairly common: kudu, zebra, warthog, cape buffalo (budget allowing), bushpig, and gemsbok.

The list of ďwould probably hunt them if availableĒ animals includes eland, lechwe, wildebeest, waterbuck, and leopard.

Iím not interested in hunting from a lodge- Iíd much prefer a remote camp of some sort. Also, while I donít want the travel accommodations to dictate the hunting, Iíd give some consideration for ease of getting to the final destination from a commercial air travel standpoint (my experience in hunting the continental U.S. is that more airlines and/or more flights = exponentially more likelihood that your guns either arrive late or donít arrive at allÖmaybe African travel is different).

Lastly, some consideration must be given to the fee structure for licenses and trophy fees. It seems that some locations require you to buy licenses/tags for any animal you want to hunt before the hunt itself starts (like we do in the U.S.) and others allow you to pay trophy fees only on animals that youíve actually killed (or wounded). If possible, Iíd like to avoid getting raped on government taxes/fees for animals, firearms, etc.

Iím sure I know just enough to not know anythingÖplease help me start zeroing in on some locations to research further.

Thanks,
Trey
