    I have hunted Africa five times since 2013, going with a good friend who is married to a south African girl and made friends with his inlaws on the first trip and was invited back and I,m going back this june-july. I have hunted the lodges, but most of my hunts were on private ranches, a few very large. I hunted on two or three ranches on each trip. my good friend-PH lets me use his rifles and we use his trucks and stay at a good friend of his when not in the field. I think I,ve shot 13 different species, giving away or selling the meat and only bringing hide-horns home. we have stayed in tents in botswanna and roughed it(not too bad). we go in their winter 36-40 degrees at night and 75-80 degrees days . if you get a chance to go, go as it will be a trip of a life time. a few of the animal I have taken.
