The Hunting Report Roundup brings you from-the-field hunter reports on exciting hunting opportunities around the world. This week we bring you great American turkey hunts, elephant hunting beyond Botswana, and water buffalo. Our database is growing all the time, and we want to share all of our subscribers' latest adventures with you. From the Arctic tundra to the Land Down Under, we put thousands of outfitter reports at your fingertips! Click the hyperlinked reports below to read more! All reports are chosen strictly for the value of their comments in helping you choose a hunt that's right for you.


Don Detwiler poses with the beautiful ocellated turkey fan.

Spring forward for turkeys!  We don't cover bird hunting in the pages of The Hunting Report Newsletter, but The Roundup is the perfect place to give a nod to some great reports on turkey hunting that we get from our subscribers. Hunting turkey in the US is a matter of picking the place. If you want more than a one-turkey limit, however, a multi-state hunt is in order! Lane Kinney (9148) did just such a hunt with John Geiman of G-Man Outdoor Adventures. “Geiman has numerous ranches leased in South Dakota, Nebraska, and Wyoming. Spring came late, and the turkeys were still henned up, but we still saw at least 16 strutting gobblers every day. I am a turkey fanatic, and I totally recommend Geiman to anybody looking for a good Merriam's wild turkey hunt.”

The south has it's share of great turkey hunting, too.
Dave Tucker (9077) visited Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina. “Without a doubt the finest hunting I have experienced in South Carolina.” Greg Stafford (9120) had great hunting for “heavy three- to five-year-old gobblers with 10- to 12-inch beards on well-managed private land” with Great Southern Outdoors in Alabama. John Searles (9065) also took an SCI Gold 50 2/8 Osceola turkey in Florida with Central Florida Trophy Hunts. “Osceola turkeys are always difficult, but guide Larry Jenkins does a great job.”

Even further south, in Mexico, you find some really different wild turkeys. After taking a Gould turkey there the previous year,
Don Detwiler (8645) hunted for ocellated turkey with Hunters Mexico. “Guide Eddie Ortega is very knowledgeable, and we saw a lot of jungle flora and fauna. Both of my hunts with him have been flawless, and I had a great time in Campeche.”


Don Toenshoff's big river-crossing elephant.

Over the Border for Jumbo. With elephant hunting offline in Botswana now is a good time to have a look at what’s going on elsewhere. Here's a roundup of some of our best subscriber reports on elephant hunts beyond Botswana.

One way to beat the Botswana blues is to meet the elephants on the border, like
Don Toenshoff
(9438) did on his hunt with Pieter de Lange of Omujeve Safaris. “It was a thrill watching a well-balanced 70-pounder cross the river into Namibia, and then stalking him for three hours. The elephants cross with no hesitation, and we saw about 1,200 during the hunt.”

Also in Namibia,
Jim D. Young (9360) took a 55-pounder in Bwabwata West National Park with Jofie Lamprecht of Jofie Lamprecht Safaris and Koos Pienaar of HuntAfrica Namibia. “There are at least 2,000 elephant in the park. I got a great 20-yard shot for this 50-year-old bull with 'black' tusks. Low quotas here result in great animals.” Dwight Van Brunt (9084) and his son hunted Namibia with Jamy Traut Safaris. “Strong populations. The elephants were moving a lot, presenting many tracking options. Hunting with Jamy is the experience-of-a-lifetime.”

“I think this is one of the hidden gems of elephant hunting,” says
Charles Butler (9193) of Adam Clements Safaris Trackers's Amadundulamela Camp in Zimbabwe. PH Brian Van Blerk put him within 20 yards of a 60-pound jumbo. “Brian is a true expert, and it's a great area with large-bodied, Botswana-type bulls.” (Editor Note: US hunters be aware that US Fish & Wildlife has banned elephant trophy imports from Zimbabwe for 2014. Click here for details.) In South Africa, Diego Gonzalez (9533) and his father enjoyed an elephant hunt with Thaba Mmoyo Safaris, taking a 70 x 40 bull. “Great experience enjoying good single malts with my father and having him behind me while I shot a big elephant.”


Robert Dobson with a big, old water buffalo from Australia's Northern Territory.

The Horns of Down Under. Once a true buffalo fanatic has hunted Cape buffalo across Africa, he may find himself wondering, “what's next?” That was the case with Robert Dobson (9429), who decided to go after the sweeping-horned buffalo of Australia with Karl Goodhand of Goodhand Outback Experience. “I love to hunt buffalo, and I wanted the unusual experience of hunting water buffalo in Australia. Boy, did this trip deliver! Not everything went as expected, but sometimes you have to go with the flow, and I took a big buffalo as well as a possible world-record banteng!” Mychal Murray (9322) also hunted with Goodhand. “Great experience calling in buffalo and hunting a unique and remote aboriginal area. Having along Karl's aboriginal guide on the buffalo hunt was interesting. Hope to go back someday.”

Brett Nelson (9323) hunted the Northern Territory with David Musgrave of South Pacific Hunters. “Don't use anything smaller than a .375; these buffalo are tough! Musgrave is very friendly and super competent.” Andrew Feltenstein (9271) went with Simon Kyle-Little of Australian Big Game Safaris. “Arnhem Land is about as remote a place as you can be. Simon had an uncanny ability to spot buffalo. All in all, just about the best hunt I have ever been on.” Daniel Soliday (9301) also travelled to Arnhem Land, hunting with Muckadilla Safaris’ Glenn Giffin. “Five days in the field and there was always something to see. Glenn does a great job of field judging, and the feral oxen were even more challenging than the water buffalo!”
