Eric Schell's Mozambique blue duiker.

The smallest prize.  Another member of the tiny 10, the blue duiker is a real collector's item and the smallest member of the duiker family. It is hard to get, too, and is known for dashing around its forest haunts at top speed. When this tiny fellow appears in one of our subscriber reports, it always get a nod of respect. Just ask Tim Maier (9298), who hunted Zambia with Charles Harvey of Zambia Hunting Expeditions. He found plentiful game and exotic trophies including lechwe, puku, sable and sitatunga, but the blue duiker escaped him. “They were smarter than me,” says Maier, who enjoyed “a totally different experience and the wonderful colonial atmosphere of Shiwa.”

“Taking a blue duiker in the traditional manner of calling” was a high point of Erik Schell's hunt (9273) with PH Anton Smit of Marromeu Safaris in Mozambique. “This hunt takes you into what is often described as 'Old Africa' at a fraction of what you pay in Zambia and Tanzania. Very strong game numbers and a phenomenal location for collectors.” Vitor Vaz de Oliveira (9593) also hunted with Anton Smit, who put him onto his duiker. “I got the blue duiker I have always wanted, and other great game. High level of professionalism from the camp staff, trackers, and PH made this categorically one of the best safaris ever. Marromeu works 365 days to curb poaching, and it makes a big difference.”
Poachers can cause trouble in blue duiker country, and the best solution may be to get far away from villages and into a deep forest safari, like T.D. Kelsey's (9252) hunt with Congo Hunting Safaris. “Best forest hunt I've been on, period. Abundant animals for the forest, and three species of duiker; blue, yellow-backed, and Peter's duiker.”


Don Detwiler, along with cat and dog.

Here, Kitty, Kitty. Calling a bobcat out of hiding is hard work, so you may have to get a guide with cat-like hunting skills (or dogs) on your side. Dwight Van Brunt (9560) says he's found a big cat specialist in Bruce Duncan of Selkirk Guiding and Outfitting. “I cannot recommend them highly enough for bobcat, cougar, or a combination hunt. I took a wonderful old tom cat in one of Idaho's most scenic areas.” Also, see Van Brunt's report (9051) on a mountain lion hunt with Duncan.  

In BC, Don Detwiler (
8616) took a repeat hunt for bobcat and mountain lion with Ram Creek Outfitters, after being stymied the first go-round due to poor snow conditions. “Far better results with the better snow, and a second enjoyable trip with a great outfitter. Watching the dogs work was a new and interesting experience.” BC has opportunities for bobcat as well as larger lynx, and George Blankenship (9555) scored on a combo-hunt there with Bart Lancaster of Lancaster Fraser Canyon. “BC has abundant cats and they grow quite large. Bart Lancaster has a great team, and hunting with them was a blast. These guys are absolutely the best at getting these cats.” Don't wait, go bobcat hunting and keep the reports coming!


John Searles takes a big night-time boar in Turkey.

Wild boar tour. A charging boar is a formidable quarry, as is a pack of boars scurrying every which way. Plus, boars are nearly everywhere, making boar hunting the ultimate pastime for traveling hunters with time to spare after their main targets are down. And for real fanatics, there are chances for shooting many animals in one hunt. “The driven hunt for wild boar is one of the most exciting hunts in Europe,” says Marc Roberts (9226). He shot eight boars while hunting in Hungary with Hunting and Sporting Scotland Ltd. “Take a lot of ammo and practice before the hunt,” he recommends. An English-speaking country with plentiful boar: Australia. Richard Bonander (9399) took three “very old boars” with Simon Little of Australian Big Game Safaris, and Daniel Soliday (9301) hunted with Muckadilla Safaris in Arnhem Land. “Shooting boar happened whenever we spotted one. During our five days in the field there was always something to see.”

Down in Patagonia, Mark Pawlowski (9230) had a close encounter while hunting boar with Algar Safaris. “I shot my wild boar at 55 feet!” he says, adding that “Jack Atcheson & Sons has been pushing this hunt for 20 years. I can see why now. Five star ranch, tons of boar and deer.” There are many ways to hunt a big boar. Take John Searles' night hunt (9284) on the coast of Turkey with Shikar Safaris, which included a 24 9/16 boar. “The outfitter's attention to detail from start to finish was a total delight.” Evidently, chasing boars is a good way to see the world. Tom Harrison (9545) took a gold medal hog in Spain with Fernando Saiz-Spain, and enjoyed a “personal tour of the Spanish countryside at no extra charge.”
