I signed up since this seemed to be an active site for discussions on African hunting. I look forward to an african hunting trip sometime in my life. As of now, daily finances and a list of North American destinations has priority.
These Days I focus on Western hunting for species such as blacktail deer, mule deer, and elk. Black Bear and Pronghorn are on my to-Do list. I hunt here with a Ruger M77 .300 win mag or a Hoyt bow.
My only exposure to african Hunting has been Books like Something of Value by Robert Ruark, and of course Hemingway, and the movies, Out of Africa, and The Ghost and the Darkness. So I have a romanticized image of Early 20th century Africa.
Are there still hunting operations in Africa which are mobile and change locations? Much of what I have seen on modern hunting shows is ranch hunts over waterholes based in a nice lodge.
Could some of you fill me in on what the range of hunting styles is in the modern day Africa?
