Default Cull hunt @ Dare to Bowhunt South Africa

With the little one on the way in just a month, there is no way I could in good conscious go and leave the wife with our baby that soon, but the temptation of it is killing me (especially when the wife tells me to just go.....)!!!! Anyhow, my buddy and PH Lammie from Dare to Bowhunt picked up some new ground that is overloaded with critters and has a put a cull package together that is unbeatable. Preferred time for it would be latter part of summer, but he still has several dates open throughout the season.

Package is for 2 hunters, 6 nights stay and 5 days worth of hunting, and includes 15 impala rams, 2 warthogs, and 1 nyala bull for $2950....So basically, $1500 a person for the entire hunt!

I've hunted with Lammie 3 times in the last 2 years and can vouch for him and his operation. He is a die hard trad hunter that knows what it takes to be successful with archery gear, and especially trad gear. I've been wanting to go to this new place since he picked it up back in the fall and have been getting teased with trailcam pictures regularly. It's been basically been unhunted for many years and has never been bowhunted. I can promise you will not be disappointed one bit!

Yes sir, they have them! My last trip was a cull hunt because of the bad droughts they had been under for basically 2 years straight!

Thanks for the well wishes. We are excited for him to get here! We are hoping he comes when he's supposed to (April 22nd) so we can get some turkey hunting in before his arrival! (And that's mainly my wife's hopes!!)

Basically from end part of April through mid September of this year.

And yes, I know what ya mean about Buff and the "push" he can give ya about Africa ....I'm still blaming him for making me jump in head first because of his trophy house, stories, and the basic allure Africa has always had on me. I promise ya, once its in your blood, you can't get it out!!

And she really doesn't need your help with getting him here. Now with what comes after, that will be when you need to be ready.

Definitely plenty of time for that!

LOL you are correct sir, but I'm pretty sure I'd never hunt again if I missed our first childs birth!! I think I could much much more easily go on this hunt then miss the birth!

Haha, yea if it comes to anything hunting related, but especially a cheap hunt, I'm a BIG sucker!
This is by far and above an unreal deal, but his normal hunts are much more affordable than most would consider. His starting package is $1990 for 6 days 7nights for an impala, blesbuck, and warthog.

Not at all. As long as it's got a string an pushes an arrow, it's good to go.

Just posted over on this side since it's where I know the most folks and it's a trad hunters dream to hunt. He sets up most everything for shots around 15 yards or so with 20 being a long shot

Could we add other animals to the list if we pay for them? Like a kudu or zebra?

Shiloh: just looking at Dare to Bowhunt's website and noticed that you and your impala are featured in the "First Time" package picture of their Zululand hunts. Great animal there and a happy looking hunter, as well!

Flights are anywhere between $1000 to $2000 depending on when and who you fly with.
My trip last August I shipped back 5 skulls and 5 capes and have roughly $1100 total getting it here with cleaning/dip&pack, and air freight.

They are a bow only operation (one of only a handful in SA) so all archery tackle is welcomed with open arms.

Since this package is only 5 days hunting, I would definitely add some days. I personally believe that 10 days is minimum, especially if it's your first African hunt.

More days is definitely a plus especially if you get a bad weather day in the mix.
And with this package, 18 critters between 2 guys in 5 days is very do-able here if good shots are made on everything, but having an extra day or two would make it even better.

Have met resistance with my partner on this. Maybe in a couple of years. Their regular rates make the whole prospect of AFRICA seem practically do-able.

Yes sir, it's much more reasonable than most would think or expect. Their big deal is they want to try and cater to the average working class folks so they have a chance to experience Africa at its fullest.

I am thinking about that flight ! But the price is diffidently good. On the cull hunt do you get to keep your capes and horns? Do they pic you up at joburg? Or do you have a layover in Africa? Arvin

The flight isn't all that bad and definitely worth every second in the end! You know that Arvin!

Yes, you can take all the hides/horns/skulls back with you. Depending on flight arrival time would depend on if you would need to layover at a hotel, but they do pick you up in Joburg and no other flights are needed from there.

Just depends on how big the boat is! If its one of those little row boats, you may be gone for a while and rethink the whole not flying thing!!
