The Hunting Report Roundup brings you from-the-field hunter reports on exciting hunting opportunities around the world. This week we bring you some great buff reports from Africa, deer hunting fit for kings in Scotland, and more great north country black bear hunts. 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.


Tibor Verebes with a tough-looking West African savannah buffalo.

Travel-size buffalo.  Sure, the buffalo in West Africa aren't nearly as big and “bossy” as their southern and eastern counterparts. Even at around half the size of a Cape buff, West African savannah buffalo are still dangerous! Getting a good shot at one is a major draw for the increasing number of hunters heading to Cameroon and Burkina Faso.

Terry McVey (
9577) says the buffalo hunting in Burkina is definitely a new experience. He went with Arjun Reddy's outfit there. “This hunt was exciting and challenging. Varied game in wild, unspoiled country. The hunt is organized differently here, so don't expect the same buff hunt you would have in Zimbabwe, and the local guides/PH all speak French.” Tibor Verebes (9617) also booked his hunt with Arjun Reddy, stalking through the heat of Burkina Faso for his West savannah buffalo. “Abundant buffalo and plains game. I recommend this hunt, but it's definitely for experienced Africa hunters. You'll need to evaluate shot opportunities and know your limits.”

Tim Fallon and Larry Weishuhn (
9682) targeted lion, roan, buffalo and more with PH Philippe Lavillette on a safari arranged by Patty Curnutte of The Global Sportsman with a French operator. “The Burkina Faso countryside is interesting, and the species are unique and fun to hunt. Bring a camera as you'll see big herds of buffalo and plenty of elephants. This hunt is also an amazingly good value.”

“I've hunted a lot, and this safari definitely goes into my top three.” That's what Jim Gross (
9608) has to say about his hunt in Cameroon with PH Pavel Martinez of Mayo Oldiri Safaris. His safari included a West savannah buffalo, giant eland and a potential SCI top 10 kob. “Exciting close-range shots. Only 10 yards for the buffalo!” Of course, this species is by no means a guarantee. Brian and Denise Welker (9650) missed on their buffalo while hunting Cameroon with Northern Operations Africa. “Buffalo are scarce, but definitely there, and we took some great game. Tracking eland and buffalo all day is a blast, and we are definitely coming back here for bushbuck and the buffalo.”


Scott Swasey with a Scotland 10-pointer.

Tweed and Tartans. There's always an eye to the hunting past in Scotland, but the hunting industry there is a modern, well-oiled machine. Between grand estates and evocative landscapes, this is truly a deer hunter's dream. It's also the place to bring a touring companion.

We have three great reports on outfitter International Adventures Unlimited. Scott Swasey (
9305) enjoyed “stalking red deer in the Highlands with rainbows overhead in beautiful scenery.” Swasey took a big estate stag, a free-range hill stag and a fallow deer in one day, and then got down to touring Scottish castles. “Incredible value. Wonderful hosts and they have this hunt down pat. Owners Michael and Danielle Grosse host the hunts and the associated touring, and they are wonderful people.” W.L. Snow (9432) had much the same experience with International Adventures Unlimited and was particularly impressed with how the trip was organized. “My only complaint is that my wife and I are looking to do this same kind of hunt in other countries, and it's hard to match. Unique opportunity to take the wife on a trip equally structured for the benefit of non-hunters. Good balance between challenging hunting and a relaxing trip.” Dan Caughey (9411) reports hunting with a noble family's gamekeepers (who wore ties!) on his trip. “I shot a nice buck about 75 yards away from Balmoral.”

Don't forget, there are a lot of great outfitters to choose from! Alan Ludwig (
9328) reports “long stalks, magnificent lodging and meals at the Sherramore Lodge, great company and Scottish hospitality” on his hunt with Mike McCrave Hunting Ltd. “The estate was over 350,000 acres, the moors overwhelming in beauty. Mike McCrave was a great guide, and there was also dedicated guide there to squire a non-hunting companion around.” Grab your ghillie and go to Scotland! If you don't have a ghillie (most of us don't), better hire a guide.


Kenneth Harrell with a lovely blond BC black bear.

Black Bear in the North, Part 2. Black Bear in the North, Part 2. In the second installment of our north country black bear roundup, we cover black bear hunting in Alberta to British Columbia. Yes, there is great black bear hunting south of the border (in the US), but there are big parts of Canada with far more bears than people, and that may be where you want to be.

Starting in Alberta, Jens Krenchel (
9164) heard about Trophy Stalkers in The Hunting Report and went to check it out for himself. “Impressive bear population. Guiding was extremely professional, camp was a pleasure, and the nature beautiful. Ross Kinch offers a fun, relaxed hunt, and black bear hunting is his big focus.”

Then it's on to British Columbia, arguably the Canada black bear capital, with endless possibilities. Barry Gleiberman (
9115) took his 13- and 15-year-old sons along for a boat-based hunt with Trophy West Guide Outfitters. “Both of my sons got giant coastal black bears, making this the trip of a lifetime for us. Amazing scenery and wildlife, with big, abundant bears!” 

Kenneth Harrell (
9187) doubled up on black bears with Neil Findlay of Bearcat Outfitters in Kamloops. One bruin sported a 17.5-in skull. “My first bear hunt, and I saw bears every day. Neil is a knowledgeable, friendly guide who strives to ensure his clients are successful.” 

And two enthusiastic reports come from Dave Fyfe's North Island Guide Outfitters. “Dave and Irene Fyfe run a top-shelf operation,” says Willie George (
9154). “Even with bad weather and slow bear activity, my group of four each took good bears in just two days, and the guides busted their butts to get us good bears. Will be coming back for one of the monsters! Great lodge and the concession is not over-hunted.” John Hofert (8975) says he enjoyed a great hunt with his son at Dave Fyfe's operation, and had particularly high praise for guide Chris Fyfe. “Chris is ever-alert, a gifted guide with innate instincts to detect roadside clues to recent black bear migration that can lead to useful shot opportunities.” In Hofert's case, this was a 7.5-squared black bear. “My fifth bear hunt with North Island.” Hofert counsels fellow subscribers “to get into the bush now and hunt” while the getting is good, advice we can only repeat. Get out there and get a big black bear!
