The Hunting Report Roundup brings you from-the-field hunter reports on exciting hunting opportunities around the world. Our database is growing all the time, and we want to share all the latest adventures with you. Whether its deer hunting the US or buffalo hunting Down Under, we put thousands of reports at your fingertips! This week we bring you kudu hunts in Namibia, North American mountain goats and an around-the-world tour for wolves. 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.

Dan Willey took an excellent kudu in Namibia measuring 59 x 60 inches.

The Grey Ghost of Namibia. Kudu is to Africa what the whitetail deer is to North America, and, like whitetails, a fun and exciting trophy to pursue. With classic plains game hunts and big kudu aplenty, Namibia is a great choice for the experienced African hunter and greenhorn alike. For his first time hunting in Africa, Dan Willey (9259) got off to a great start with Omujeve Safaris. "Excellent, wild hunting areas; a free-range 60-inch kudu, plus a 3.5-inch Damara dik-dik. Everyone went out of their way to ensure that I had a successful hunt." On his trip to Namibia, Greg Morris (9264) enjoyed taking his first kudu with PH Jamy Traut. "Everything I saw was in great shape. The animals were plentiful and acted like they were lightly hunted." He reports taking a number of exceptional trophies, including sable, hartebeest and others.

On his very first Africa safari Greg Morris shot a wonderful kudu bull.

Roger Croell (9246) says the Kavango area of Namibia is a kudu honey hole. He hunted with Huntafrica Namibia Safaris' Koos Pienar and reports, "Many kudu and many, many sable. Absolutely the most game one could ever want to see." Veteran African traveler, Gibson Lewis (9236) took his grandson along on his 17th safari and hunted a number of species with African Thirstland Safaris. Kudu, wildebeest, oryx and zebra anchored his hunt, but he also took fox, African wildcat, genet and Damara dik-dik.

Despite a die-off due to a disease outbreak, quality kudu were still available on Neil Molendyk's safari.

Unfortunately, rabies outbreaks among kudu populations occur in Namibia regularly, killing off numbers of these animals. Neil Molendyk (9202) found that this past June on his hunt at Klawerberg Game Ranch with PH Jan Visser. He reports great game conditions, but not for kudu. "The greater kudu were suffering from an outbreak of rabies. Sufficient numbers, but there was ample evidence of disease mortality." Despite that, he took two NAPHA sliver medal kudu and gives the operation an excellent rating. Make sure you ask your operator about the latest outbreak in his area and how the kudu populations there are doing.

Michael Morton overcame terrain, weather and shooting angles to take his mountain goat in Alaska.

Act like a goat. To successfully hunt a mountain goat you have to act like a mountain goat. At least, you have to climb over some rough country to get to their rocky homes. Be sure to look for Michael Morton's report of his harrowing Alaska hunt (9372) in our upcoming December issue: "After a three-plus-hour stalk I made a 255-yard uphill shot in 50 mph winds. The goat rolled more than 750 yards down the mountain before wedging in the crevice of a rock. This is not a hunt for the faint of heart. Be ready to hike and climb." That is the refrain we also heard from Tim Geppert (9283) after his hunt with Turnagain Adventures in British Columbia. "Be in shape for climbing. There's nothing easy about a BC backcountry hunt. I took my goat at 300 yards after two days of five-hour climbs." Geppert tells us that he was in good shape, but "better after the hunt!"

Joseph Ciavarra spent the night on a rocky mountainside after taking his goat late in the day.

Joseph Ciavarra (9324) usually waits to get his trophies home before filing a report, but he was so happy with his British Columbia hunt with Blue Stone Guiding and Adventures that he filed a report right away. He harvested a representative mountain goat and a 50-inch moose. "This is a superb outfitter, and all of the guides were hard-working and congenial." The highlight? "Sleeping on the side of a mountain after shooting a goat late in the evening."
Up in the Yukon, Richard Haykel (9311) missed his Dall sheep, but took a fine mountain goat, accompanied by guide Harro Obst of Moon Lake Outfitters. "Great hunting area with lots of game and excellent trophy potential. This is a top-notch outfit, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a mountain hunt in Yukon. I am already re-booking for next year and bringing my friends along."

Richard Haykel's Yukon mountain goat.

While goat hunts in general require some hard climbing, we heard of one exception. Bob Keagy (9013) says that he was awaiting knee replacement surgery when he got his 27 2/8 SCI goat in Alaska. "Glacier Guides was aware that my mobility was poor. They managed, nevertheless, to put me on a trophy goat the very first day!" Start hiking!

While hunting Marco Polo sheep, Paul Hatzell shot this Asian wolf.

Howl at the moon. The ubiquitous canis lupus was once found from the Arctic to the Arabian Peninsula. While its range is significantly reduced, you can still find wolves in Europe and Asia in addition to North America. Chasing wolves makes for a great stand alone hunt, or a bookend hunt while pursuing other species. Paul Hatzell (9015) went to far flung Tajikistan for Marco Polo sheep and ibex through The Hunting Consortium. He got lucky and took a wolf on the side. "The game was excellent. I saw perhaps 1,500 Marco Polo; this is the place to go in November or December. Wolf sign was average." John Searles (8911) said that his trip to Mongolia with Juulchin World Tours was worth it for the culture alone. "The entire hunt was awesome and incorporated three widely different geographical areas." Besides his wolf, he also took two ibex, a Mongolian gazelle, and a roe deer, despite game numbers that were still recovering from the harsh winter of 2010.
And how about hunting the "Children of the Night" in the land of Count Dracula? "Stating that wolf is abundant sounds odd to my ears," said Jens Krenchel (8571) of the wolf numbers in Romania. "But their presence there supersedes anything else I have found in Europe." He hunted with Transylvaniahunt and guide Kiss Attila. "This was my first wolf after five dedicated hunts. It was close to the hunt-of-a-lifetime."

Terrell McCombs took this huge wolf in Alberta.

Of course, wolf hunters often come up empty, but Terrell McCombs (8755) says he has found a good bet closer to home, hunting Alberta with Scott Taylor of Bearpaw Outfitting. "Scott does an incredible job on these hunts. It takes patience and some mental toughness, but you will get a shot at a big wolf. I took a 130-pound, pure white male over bait. Shots can come quick, and the animals may not stop."
