Erik Schell's Mozambique crocodile.

"Just So" crocodiles.  If you see a huge crocodile on the banks of the great gray-green Limpopo River, don’t bother asking what it wants for dinner. Like Kipling’s elephant: You should shoot the darn thing before getting too close! That said, getting in close is all part of the thrill. Larry Rogers (9208) visited the Limpopo for a safari with Kei River Hunting Safaris’ Andrew Renton. “I took a croc at 30 yards to complete my Dangerous Game of Africa with a handgun. Kei River Hunting Safaris has an excellent PH, excellent trophy quality and excellent lodging.”

The area around Mozambique’s Zambezi River Delta is prime crocodile country. Wes Reagan (
8827) focused on the aquatic reptiles on his Mozambique trip with Mashambanzou Safaris, taking hippo and a “very old, 14-foot-seven-inch crocodile. Both animals were extremely abundant. Owner Grant Taylor is doing a great job rebuilding this area.” Erik Schell (9273) took his 12-foot crocodile in Mozambique with Marromeu Safaris’ Anton Smit. “This hunt takes you into what is often called ‘Old Africa’ at a lower price than Zambia or Tanzania. For the collector it is a phenomenal location.” Also in Mozambique, Dennis Erickson (8834) recommends a buff and croc combination hunt with J.P. Kleinhans Safaris. “I don’t know of a better place for a buffalo and crocodile hunt. Buffalo and crocodile were not affected by the poaching under the previous outfitter at Mahimba, and Kleinhans is doing a great job of getting that under control.”


Paul Hatzell's Marco Polo Argali.

The King of the Sheep. The argali draws hunters to some of the most exotic destinations in the world. In an earlier Roundup, we looked at the argali of Mongolia, including what is reputed to be the largest sheep in the world, the Gobi argali. Now we head over to Tajikistan, home of the fabled Marco Polo argali.

Apparently, the Hot Springs Camp in Tajikistan is “hot, hot, hot” for this species. Paul Hatzell (
9015) reports seeing “at least 1,500 Marco Polo” during his visit there with The Hunting Consortium. He took a 56-inch trophy. Mike Simpson (8971) also booked this hunt, and he reports counting a lot of sheep, too—something over 2,000. “The sheep here are in great shape, with plenty of grass to graze.” Simpson took a 59x61-inch-plus ram to top off an excellent trip, and says that he got a nice ibex too. Jon Bonnell (9182) went to Hot Springs Camp with Safari Outfitters. “Phenomenal area with amazing numbers of sheep. The Hot Springs Camp is a slick outfit, especially considering the location. The guides, skinners, cooks and mechanics all knew their job. Fantastic trip, and I was able to bring my trophy home with me without the hassle of waiting.”

Still in the Pamir Mountains, John Stevens (
9476) took his Tajikistan Marco Polo with Bryan Martin’s Asian Mountain Outfitters. “What an awesome adventure in culture, travel and hunting. This hunt was everything Bryan Martin described and more. I was very satisfied with my trophy, although I saw bigger sheep while hunting.”


Sean McCann's hunting partner, Rich Gotshall, and his New Brunswick black bear.

Black Bear in the North, Part 1. Of course there are great opportunities to hunt North American black bear stateside, but why not take a fun trip farther up north to Canada? In this installment of our north country black bear roundup, we cover black bear hunting from Manitoba to New Brunswick.

Starting in the east, Sean McCann (
9188) reports happy hunting with Adair’s Wilderness Lodge in New Brunswick. “Four hunters, four good bears by day five of a six-day hunt. Larry Adair went above and beyond anything I expected. Great hunt for the significant other, too! She got her first bear, and they did a great job with her hunt.” 

A lot of hunters purchase black bear tags as an add-on for Quebec caribou hunts, but not many get the bear. Dennis Slater (
9487) tagged out on caribou and took his first black bear, a mature boar, during his hunt with Leaf River Lodge. “Leaf River performed to the highest standards at a reasonable price. Very honest, organized and dependable outfitter, and there are bears around if you want to add one on.”

Looking for a color phase bear? Manitoba is known for its variety and big trophies. Eric Arnette (
9440) went with Steeprock River Outfitters and reported having trouble “actually trying to get one that was black! Crazy number of color-phase bears in the area. I have shot numerous bears with guide Wayne Bass, all with a bow, and all have qualified for Pope & Young or Boone & Crockett. Took my 12-year-old son, and he got a wonderful bear as well. Jess Goldstein (9158) hunted Manitoba with Whiteshell Outfitters’ Mike Adey. “You do stand a chance of taking a serious trophy bear here (P&Y number one bear in 2010) and a color phase. Quality setup for bowhunters, and great place to relax and fish after harvesting bear. Another hunter took a six-foot-10-inch bear while I was there. Highly recommended.”
