ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
This was the first African hunt for all four in our group. We couldn't have asked for a better time. The weather was phenomenal (40's in the mornings, 70's in the afternoons) and the game was abundant. For the uninitiated, most hunting in S Africa is done on private ranches which are fenced and intensively managed for trophy potential. Jacques hunts on various ranches with daily drives to and from hunting areas anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 1/2 hours, depending on your target species. My only regret was not bringing my own gun. My hunting partners all brought theirs and the total cost to bring your own is about $100 and perhaps 1-2 hours of extra time at either end of your flight. Our group took many great trophies including 3 kudu (49-54 inches), 4 gemsbok (37-41 inches), 6 impala (21-25 inches), one black and one blue wildebeest, 2 springbok, an ancient old scarred up bushbuck, 2 great waterbuck (28 and 29 inches), 2 blesbok (including a white one which Jacques thinks may be a top 10 contender), a stunningly beautiful nyala, 1 cerval cat and a very nice warthog. For unexplained reasons, the warthogs were hard to come by. I intended to hunt a baboon but despite multiple sightings, I was unable to connect. Other animals seen in abundance included eland, sable, roan, giraffe and all sorts of tiny antelope (steenbok, duiker, etc.). I hunted waterfowl one evening (pass shooting between agricultural areas and a roosting lake) which was great fun but I was unable to connect on a spurwing goose. Upland birds (helmeted guineafowl and francolin) were in extreme abundance. This would also be a great trip to bring the family. Jacques and his wife Natalie live on site with their two young children. Looking through their visitors log, it appears that more hunters bring their wives than don't. There were two couples in camp with us and both of the wives accompanied their husbands on their hunts, viewing and photographing wildlife. Natalie also has programs where she can take families to a nearby spa, shopping areas, elephant-back photo safari, hot air balloon rides and so forth.
