Cool Off with the Mountain Lions Nothing helps beat the heat like the image of chasing wild cats in winter! And here's a few hunt reports to you cool off. In Idaho's Selkirk Range Dwight Van Brunt (9051) took a 175-pound a cougar with a handgun hunting behind hounds with guide Bruce Duncan. His hunting partner took a "monster" 32-pound bobcat on the same hunt. "Flawless in every respect… has hunted the area for 40 years." Lane Kinney (9034) waited for snow to fly into New Mexico's Carson National Forest before getting a treed mountain lion with a cross-bow while hunting with guide Alan Bennett of Pinnacle Outfitters. "Lots of lions… 100 percent success." Dave Baxter (9172) took a mountain lion on a horseback hunt with guide Hap Blacksten. "Even if there is no snow for tracking, Hap and his dogs can find a lion." He hunted the Wagon Mound Area of Cimarron in New Mexico.

(Mike Benben, right, and his 10-foot brown bear.)
Alaska - Brown Bears Galore! Mike Benben (8893) says his group of five hunters saw 34 brown bears in one evening! They hunted Southeast Alaska with Jimmy Rosenbruch of Glacier Guides. Benben took a magnificent boar he says went 10 feet and had a skull measuring 26 4/16 B&C. Pat Laughlin (8909) says his coastal brown bear squared 10 feet too. He hunted the Alaska Peninsula with Dave Leonard's Mountain Monarchs, guides Riley Hicks and Martin Balukas. He saw half a dozen bears a day, all with "luxurious perfect coats." Over on Kodiak Island, Mario Nobili (8862) took his "trophy-of-a-lifetime" despite a late spring with plenty of snow on the ground. He hunted with Mike Munsey of Munsey's Bear Camp and says, "My guide never stopped, always with his Zeiss on his eyes." And Lloyd Smrkovski (8904) shot a brown bear on Chichagof Island with Chris Erickson of Tok River Outfitters. "Outstanding hunt. Outstanding guide."

(Mark Wehinger and his 40-inch Cape buffalo.)
Zimbabwe - Where the Bulls Are So you're looking for a big Cape buffalo? So was Greg Gonzalez (8829). He got a 40-incher while hunting the Zambezi Escarpment and Rifa with PH Frik Muller of Pro Safaris Africa. "Frik recommended we pass on a 37-inch buffalo, knowing that we'd see better." Mark Wehinger (8846) also took a 40-inch buffalo in the Save Conservancy with PH Pete Wood, guiding for Roger Whittall Safaris. The highlight: a full buffalo charge on follow-up! Glenn Baker bagged a 40-inch bull in the Buybye Valley Conservancy with PH Kevin Thomas of KT Safaris. "One of the finest areas remaining in Africa," he says. "Superb management… run like a fine Swiss watch." Eight buffalo were taken during his time in camp, his the smallest. The largest went 45 inches!
In Chewore South, Bill Goddard (8821) shot a 38-inch buff hunting with Clint Edwards of Chifuti Safaris. "Great buffalo hunting area," he says. Raul Brito (8832) reports great stalking for buffalo, kudu and waterbuck in Dande North with PH Calvin Nobrega of Gavin Rorke Safaris. His buff went 35 inches, and his kudu 52. Jerry Baker (8848) says he spent nine of 10 days hunting buffalo in Chenje with Chifuti Outfitters, PHs Clint Edwards and Keith Wall. "Thick brush - very hard to hunt; walked 46 miles in 10 days!" He worked for his buff! And Tim Hauck (8841) laments losing his buffalo, but took a mature sable and kudu on his hunt in Dande and Dande East with PH Myles McCallum, guiding for Charlton McMallum Safaris. "Good quality, but not great plains game numbers; typical dangerous game area."
NAMIBIA: FROM DAYTIME LEOPARDS TO FIRST-TIME PLAINS GAME Mark Seiden (9045) completed his "big five" in Namibia hunting with Dirk de Bod, of Dirk de Bod Safaris. A leopard had eluded Seiden on previous hunts, and he took this specimen in broad daylight. "The cat was standing atop a koppie 191 yards away and I killed it with one shot." He describes de Bod as "a gentleman and a sportsman, in addition to being a consummate PH." Leroy Wurst (9192) had a parallel leopard hunting experience with Jan Oelofse Hunting Safaris. He also took a leopard in broad daylight. "My original plan was to take a handful of plains game and concentrate on hunting leopards. Upon harvesting my cat early I was left with ample extra time and took 19 species of plains game. This area is loaded with game!" Species included sable, eland, kudu, and oryx.
Chet Vahle (9128) says Nick Nolte Hunting Safaris provided the perfect family safari for plains game. A first-timer to African hunting, he says he and his two sons collected 20 trophies, including kudu, springbok, impala, hartebeest, zebra and oryx, several of gold medal quality. His non-hunting wife enjoyed seeing "dozens of species of animals and birds and the beautiful southwest African landscape." If you haven't hunted Africa and are thinking about it, this is a good report to check out. Neil Molendyk (9202) took all medal quality trophies with Klawerberg-Namibia. He hunted typical Namibian game: kudu, gemsbok (oryx), red hartebeest, warthog and others. While one of the rabies outbreaks common in Namibia had killed off many kudu, he says populations were sufficient to support hunting. "Exceptional hospitality and ethical professionalism," he says. And Kurt Mannchen (9131) says a herd of more than 100 gemsbok thundered by him within 50 yards while hunting with Jamy Traut Hunting Safaris in the Panorama Game Reserve. He also hunted eland, kudu and springbok. "Saw a total of 29 species… If you enjoy walking in semi desert and seeing large numbers of species while hunting, go with Jamy."
IBEX ON THE IBERIAN PENINSULA Looking for a new hunting experience in the Old World? Spain is home to four varieties of magnificent ibex, and it's a perfect destination to bring a non-hunting spouse. "Top quality" is how Peter Vagn-Jensen (9109) describes the game and the Maestrazgo region where he hunted Beceite Spanish ibex with Valeriano Belles Tena of Ibex Hunt Spain. Also in Maestrazgo with Belles Tena, Curtis Williamson (9116) took a 67 SCI Beceite and Kenneth Shives (9114) bagged an 87 SCI trophy. "High quantity, density and quality of game." Alberto Cesana (9093) also enjoyed the mountains in Maestrazgo, finding a "wild, wonderful shooting ground and wilderness." Ibex Hunt Spain guides elsewhere in Spain, too-Joaquin Delgado (9050) reports stalking big 92.5 SCI Gredos ibex in the Sierra Gredos, and Blaise Rey (9044) hunted with Belles Tena for Gredos ibex in Avila, getting his SCI silver medal Gredos after a "beautiful 700-meter climb above a sea of fog."

(Terry Small with his Gredos ibex)
Want more recommendations? A "five star adventure you can take the wife on," says Russell Marshall (9138) of a hunt in Castellon province, where he took a CIC 243 Beceite with Vicente Gil of Caza Hispanica. In Sierra Gredos with guide Giuseppe Carrizosa, Chris Bobo (9097) hunted Gredos ibex, taking a fine 88 SCI animal with his bow! Also with Carrizosa, hunter Terry Small (9106) took the grand slam of the four Spanish ibex subspecies, Southeastern, Beceite, Ronda and Gredos, as well as a chamois.
Hunters in Spain are not limited to ibex! Take Donald Detwiler's hunt (9145) --besides taking a 15-year-old gold medal Gredos ibex in Salamanca, he also harvested Pyrenean chamois, mouflon and fallow deer with guide Alfonso Fabres of Hunt In Spain. He says, "The hunting and cultural experience of this hunt will be hard to beat."
