Game Hunting South Africa
The ranch and the concessions with its 30+ different huntable big game species cover over 30 000 ha of pristine mountain, plains and savannah. There are fenced and unfenced areas where both PH and client practise fair chase and share knowledge and reward.
It is a highlight for me every time I see a client and friend taking a trophy. Each moment is different, each reaction and smile unique, each happy moment a highlight.
On a successful hunting day you will be up before sunrise to have a light meal and something to drink, then at first light the hunt will begin. Driving in a 4 x 4 pick up or walking with your Professional Hunter till you see the trophy you want, stalking the trophy and then if you are lucky and have a clear shot, take it. After the trophy is down and photos are taken the Professional Hunter and his staff load the animal on the 4×4 and call camp on the 2-way radio to make ready for brunch.
The Professional Hunter then takes the trophy to the skinning shed so it can be skinned and the horns properly prepared by the trained trackers. Then it is brunch, normally between 11:00-12:00. At about 14:00 you leave camp again to hunt and return to camp at last light to enjoy it around the camp fire talking about the days hunt. Dinner will be served and you can enjoy a well deserved rest.
Man has the right to enjoy the fruits of Gods creation, and hunting is one of his ways and means. It is the oldest known skill, and if it is lost to him through neglect or emotion, or mistaken interpretation of the laws of nature, then man will be weakened. He will have lost one of his attributes. Man is first a creature of his environment, and that was originally the wilderness. He has built cities and can fly around the moon, but if he forgets the art of Gods creation, then he will loose his soul. He will become but a cog in a huge machine.
