Default African Safari Auction for Bowhunters' Hurricane/Flood Relief

This has been approved by the Mods...

Auction will close Friday, September 8, 2017 at 8:00 p.m.

Matsuri Safaris

This was a hunt that was donated to the Lone Star Bowhunters Association and the LSBA has decided to use it for hurricane/flood relief of bowhunters. Thanks to Van at Matsuri!!

7 day 2 person bowhunt in 2018 with $2,000.00 trophy fees to be divided equally between hunters, includes accommodations, food, drinks, laundry, professional hunter fees and field prep of trophies

Not included, accommodations arrival date and deoarture date ($200 pp), flights, airport pickup fee ($450.) pickup point for hunt is Polokwane Airport.

All proceeds will go directly to the TBH Harvey Relief Fund. The winning bid will be paid TBH to keep it simple for the winner and transparency.

There have been several TBHers that have hunted with Matsuri, including Bisch, Lip, TradAg02, M.E.B and Brinkley. The Kana Clan will be hunting with Matsuri in 2018.

If you have any questions, please let me know. denakana@gmail.com or 409 739-2630

Thanks!
Dena

Thank you LSBA and Matsuri!

Having never hunted Africa, this is on my bucket list. How does the trophy fee system work and what animals are included in this hunt?

Thanks again.

There are no animals included. There is a $1,000.00 trophy credit per hunter on any animal taken, so if you kill a Kudu which is $2,500.00, your fee will be $1,500.00.

You bet!! Hope it can help some fellow bowhunters in this time of crisis and give a couple of bowhunters the opportunity to hunt Africa.

Is there a date range the hunt needs to take place or is it any time in 2018?

To all interested:

This may be the greatest time to get to bid on a great hunt to Africa. If you have ever wanted to go, this is the time. It will be one of the greatest times you will have on any hunt in your lifetime. Never will you see the number and the variety of animals you will see in Africa. No where in the world can compete with this! Do not pass up this chance! Beside, this is going to a great cause in helping other Texans and possibly other TBHER's!

If you want to know what it is like to hunt Africa, PM me or any of the other many members of TBH that have been. I do not think you will find any that would not say that Africa gets in your blood and you will want to return time and time again!

Someone please bid, I've been with Van twice and prefer to stay married. The first trip two of us killed 18 animals, the second trip 3 of us killed 28. The animals, lodging and food are great. Check his website or search old threads.

Most archery hunting occurs July through September.

Anytime in 2018, but the summer months are the best hunting times.

Thank for chiming in Chris! We have a group of 8 that will be hunting with Van in June, 2018, for Hunter's 18th birthday and graduation present. We cannot wait!

Man....if flights to SA weren't higher that a Giraffes nose, I'd be bidding! Bump for a great cause and what sounds like an excellent deal!
