About Big Game hunting

Big game is a term that covers most animals larger than rabbits and squirrels that are typically pursued by hunters. Big-game hunting, when regulated and controlled as it is in most countries today, is a highly efficient tool to conserve wildlife. It’s important to understand that well-managed big-game hunting relies on conservative quotas determined by biologists and other professionals to maximize conservation benefits and minimize impact on the species as a whole. Hunters who pursue big game experience a personal involvement in nature and a rare chance to be participants in, rather than just observers of, the land and habitats in which they are hunting. Through this, most hunters gain a profound appreciation of the natural world and great respect for their quarry. Most hunters recall the taking of game animals among the most memorable moments of their lives. But there is far more to big-game hunting than the personal connection to nature it promotes. Hunting generates the bulk of revenues that are used for wildlife conservation across the world. Hunting in less developed regions creates incentives for local people to conserve wildlife and habitat, and provides employment and other economic benefits in rural areas. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service noted in a recent press release, "Legal, well-regulated sport hunting, as part of a sound management program, can benefit the conservation of species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation."

1x1: Eastern Cape Free-range Hunt

1x1: Eastern Cape Free-range Hunt South Africa

ACCOMMODATION: FARM GUESTHOUSE as listed 4 STAR THATCH LODGE upgrades available at an additional fee of $150 per hunter The Ranch sits on an escarpment (2200 feet above sea level) and has four unique biospheres within half an hour’s drive. This unique change in biospheres results in huge animal diversity. the landscape and habitats vary from deep wide valley bushveld with thick riverine bush, home of the Eastern Cape Kudu as well as Cape Bushbuck, Nyala, Warthog, and Bush pig. The sides of the valleys/canyons make for great vantage points. A lot of time is spent at theses elevated points glassing for trophies. On the plateau above the valley lies the savanna and scattered woodlands. This is home to species such as Impala, Sable, Zebra, Waterbuck and Mountain Reedbuck. These plateaus also make great vantage points for glassing and the start of many long stalks. The savanna gradually gives way to the long rolling Bedford plains which were once the place of vast animal migrations across the Eastern Cape. These plains are where Springbuck, Blesbok and Black Wildebeest are found and often ambushed from behind the endless anthills which make for good hiding places. These plains give way to the Kaggaberg Mountain range with valleys and box canyons, home to the Eland, Cape Bushbuck and Kudu.

Leopard Hunt, 1x1

Leopard Hunt, 1x1 Namibia

Due to their secretive nature a successful Leopard hunt will require baiting on a 14 or 21 day safari. The bait, in the form of fresh meat, is placed in a tree, whilst the hunter lies in wait in a blind less than 100 meters away. This is usually done at dusk and if a leopard comes, it will be just before total darkness sets in. It might well be that the first time you see the Leopard will be when he is at the bait, although other smaller animals will notify you of his imminent arrival. Few other hunts will give you such excitement – your heart rate will instantly sky-rocket.
