Poser said:I'll admit to not knowing a whole lot about African Hunting, but what I have seen of it, doesn't look so intriguing to me. I would definitley have little interest in riding around with a crew of 7 people including a guy who's job it is to deploy your shooting sticks. I would also have 0 interest in sitting over a water hole in a pimped out hooch with picture of game on the wall with price tags next to each one.
The only "poor man's" African hunting I have heard of is an acquaintance of mine who is going there for a couple of weeks just to hunt warthogs (that' all he could afford). He said he worked out a deal for $100 a day for lodging and food. He's entirely on his own as far as getting around, hunting etc on a large ranch to trim the warthog population. Curious if there is such thing as or equivalent to DIY African hunts. Based on my somewhat limited observations of it, I think I would choose a lifetime of hunting North American backcountry to a collection of African trophies.
