Favourite Big Game Animal

Recommended Posts

 

 

blue tick hounds are used in N america also, for black bear ,cougars and other nasties

There good fun as well, Ive hunted Bobcats, Coons, Wolverine and cougar with dogs, Bk and Bn Bear and a few others in N A, if only I could post pics on here.

 

 

Why can't you post pics? Do you not know how? It's easy enough and plenty of us would love to see them!

 

No I don't, I have tried but to no avail.

what dogs do you use for cervil hunting.

They are hunted with blue tick hounds, the same dogs are used for Caracal, Leopard and pigs etc, all very exciting stuff if your into dog work and shooting.

 

It just so happens I am.

So, thanks for the tip for posting photos.

Some south African skulls and some beasts shot with dogs last winter in the snow, the moose another poster posted on this thread reminded me of the Elk hunt last winter..

One or two more African skulls under the Roe and a mix of African and North American mounts. I will try and sort out better photos of some more of the collection.

Thank you very much...yes that was a very nice lechwe, with a very good curl on his tips. Sometimes you get then very high on the head, but the tips dont curl all that much

moose are huge animals

i shot a yearling calf and that weighed in just under 400lbs dressed out.

these bulls can weigh in nearly 900lbs or more

 

we get them walking through the town every now and then.

 

you dont want to hit one in a car as you are lucky to live after

I've hunted South Africa four times and have just returned from Namibia. I've taken mot plains game species from this part of the world. And whilst I'd like to hunt a cape buff one day for now I'd say my favourite big game animal to hunt would be kudu.

It never ceases to amaze me how an animal so big can disappear so readily. It's no coincidence that they're nicknamed 'grey ghosts'. I took my first Eland bull in Namibia very recently too. They're a lot of fun to stalk as were the Oryx (gemsbok).

Good post. Have you hunted Impala? I'd have to have a bash at those, they interest me but don;t know why particularly, lol. Warthogs look cracking fun too.
