We had a fantastic time in 2013. Went for a couple of gemsbok and a eland. Game home w/ a LOT more! Need to go back for a waterbuck, sable, and red lechwe. I'd really like to get a Lord Derby Eland, but like the old joke of the two neighbors standing over the fence admiring the one neighbor's wife......."I'd LOVE to, but I can't afford it"!

adictosacazar: thanks for starting this thread. Love to see other's trophys and relive the adventure of a life time under truly wild skies! Thanks.​

I would like to go back to the ranch I was on in Namibia one or two more times, because I was really happy with the hunts and place we stayed. That said, I wouldn't mind finding a place to hunt nyala or go to Botswana after that.

Oh Yes! Botswana was a hunters paradise.. The Okavango had the appearance of a giant floral garden, teaming with wildlife, and no sign of other human activity other then us. That first African hunt for me was quite unique. I had licenses for Cape Buffalo, Kudu, Impala, and Zebra,. The hunt was a tent safari where pup tents, food, supplies, and gear was loaded into two Mokoros, (a crude canoe-like boat made from a hollowed out log which was poled down the countless water ways laced through the million acre concession. Myself, PH, and two trackers would make camp, setting up our tents in prime areas for camp and hunt the dry areas on foot. I regretted not having a license for Sitatunga, one of the most desirable and elusive of all the antelopes. We were fortunate to spot a trophy class example that presented a good shot just before taking to the water and submerging all but the tip of his nose/eyes above the water. It was roughing it, and truly representative of a 19th century style safari. My PH was Ian McFarland, proprietor of Vera Safaris. The experience lived up to his claim as an African hunt of a lifetime. A year after my hunt, Craig Boddington published an article in Petersens Hunting magazine, describing his experience at one of Ians camps which took place during the same time frame as mine. Unfortunately this hunt took place 35 years ago and I don’t believe the outfit is still in operation.

Incredible the variety of antelopes you get in each part of Africa, making this continent so special.

I'd love to make it to Africa one day!! I've never been and have wanted to go for many year's. It's just seeing the cost of everything that makes it hard for me to commit. I live in Yuma, AZ and I know the hunting can be expensive and especially the flights to and from Africa and getting the trophy shipped back and mounted.. It all adds up quick!! I'd LOVE to hunt Kudu and Eland!
