If you had to choose any of these amazing Trophies to hunt, which one would be on the top of your bucket list for 2022?

From: Chief 419

I want to hunt baboons and monkeys on my next trip.

From: StickFlicker
08-Feb-21
Sable will be at the top of the list on my next trip, along with perhaps Nyala or a black Impala at some point.

From: Highlife
08-Feb-21
Warthog ,bush pig, nyala, greater kudu oh yes buffalo not necessarily in that order. As it's Africa ya take what she gives you ;)

From: Ambush
08-Feb-21
If I ever get to make a second trip, bushbuck is top of the list! It wouldn't be if I didn't screw up twice. And definitely baboons again!

From: Bowfreak
08-Feb-21
Kudu would be number one for me and for some reason I would love to shoot a giant warthog.

08-Feb-21
Bowfreak, that’s normal. Everyone wants a big warthog

Of course another Buffalo. But for animals I haven’t killed. It would have to be an Eland Bull with rounded off, worn down horns. And so muscled up he looks like his skin is going to explode.

From: t-roy
08-Feb-21
Black wildebeest is near the top of my list.

Bowfreak.......when I go again, I’ll probably try and shoot 4-5 warthogs. They are a blast, AND cheap! I know Bake loves hunting them! ;-)

08-Feb-21
Who doesn’t love warthogs they are a riot to watch

From: Kurt

Black Wildebeest and Gemsbok

Chief, baboons are tough with a bow. More skittish than turkey. I managed to take 3 while over there.

I really like Nyalas. Kudos are great, so are Impalas....? But Nyalas have got to be tops for me.

Baboon, bushbuck, and another buffalo.

Both wildebeest's and a Zebra. TMBB

(South Africa, Limpopo) = Bushbok, Big Impala during Rut, Kudu.

(Namibia) = Springbok, Gemsbok, Hartebeest.

(Zimbabwe) = shell of its former self - SAVE Valley Dangerous Game.

(Mozambique) = Buffalo.

(Zambia, Luangwa Valley) = Leopard, Lion, Hippo, Hyena, Cookson’s Wildebeest.

(Cameroon) = Lord Derby Eland, Western Roan, Savanah Buffalo

Man SpiralHorn, about the only one you haven’t hunted is Uganda

From: Spiral Horn
09-Feb-21
If I had my choice on where to go it would be Ethiopia for Monster Leopard and Mountain Nyala. Ethiopia is not at all like what comes to mind when most westerners think of Africa. Lush forested mountains and incredible game. But nose-bleed expensive.

From: Spiral Horn
09-Feb-21
To get the thread back on track. Dries has a wonderful reputation in South African, and especially as a premier bowhunting operation. Every time I see his brochure the animals always impress.

BTW - the Impala pictured is an absolute slammer. This is a very underestimated prize as Limpopo has some of the best Southern Impala available anywhere. Hunting them during the rut is a blast/

From: Bou'bound

lots of great animals, but one of the smallest is worth considering where available. it's tough to beat a big dik-dik even if they only weight 10 pounds or so.

From: Raiders
09-Feb-21
Roan, Bushpig, Hyenna and bushbuck are my top priorities for my August trip

From: Rob Nye
09-Feb-21
Is it just me or “Tough to beat a big dik dik” sounds kinda odd? Lmao

From: t-roy
09-Feb-21
Rob......I’d certainly be proud of a 10lb dik-dik, but only if it was mine! Otherwise, I’d rather not look at the trophy photos.

From: Scoot
09-Feb-21
A 10 lb dik-dik is a heck of a lot of dik-dik! :) I'd be very happy with a 7-8 lb dik-dik.

A leopard would make me very, very happy. Never going to happen for me in my current life, but a guy can always dream...

Not the best picture of my “Big Dik Dik” but I will tell you for a fact that it brings a lot of attention from the ladies and it makes me happy!

BPM.....you generally get better quality trophy photos of your dik-diks if you take the time to wipe the blood off, first. Also, make sure the tongue isn’t visible, either ;-)

Looks like BPM found his dik dik in a very bushy area.

Rob, If you trim down the bushes, I've heard it makes the dik dik look bigger. Was told by a friend.

Hunted Africa once for Buff....decided to jump into what I really wanted to hunt most

From: badlander
10-Feb-21
If I ever went back, impala would be #1 on my list. String jumping bastards caused me fits last time.

After that, sitting a tree stand for bush buck, and a 10# dik-dik would probably complete my list.

From: Chief 419
10-Feb-21
jstevens61, I've taken a baboon and monkey with my bow. That's why I want to go back & hunt them again! Other than baboons and monkeys, I'd like to shoot a zebra. I didn't target them. There are too many critters to hunt. 10 days go by quickly.

Zebra’d out on my trip. Took 2. Next trip would have to be a gemsbok and black wildebeest.

Jstephens That’s another smart, weary animal

None. I don't trophy hunt. I hunt for food.

But I have no problem with those that do trophy hunt.

My dad and mother are headed back yet again, either this fall or next, he is primarily targeting Sable, bush pig, and bush buck as that’s the package he was top bidder on. Those were my only wish list animals.

Between my dad and I before his next safari we have 21 African mounts..

If or when I should go back again, It will only be after I’ve taken all the animals here in Alaska I’ve not done with a bow.

From: jstephens61

Stix, zebra is a pretty darn good meal!

From: BIGHORN

Hey MathewsMan, also I'm getting a price on hunting a Leopard on this trip too. Should find out in about a week if it's a go but it won't be in South Africa because it is illegal to kill a Leopard there now.

From: pav

*IF* I ever make it Africa....Cape Buffalo would have to be #1 on my list. There's not even a close second!

I've read that the 'Bongo' is a particularly elusive critter.

From: TrapperKayak

1 kudu, 2 cape buff, 3 warthog. I already got a blue wildebeest and an impala but it was with rifle.

From: midwest

I don't have a real desire to go but I think elands are freaking cool looking and heard they are fantastic to eat. Would love to have a zebra rug, too.

Good luck to the guys going!

Dreamed of Africa for at least half my life. Based on all I have learned about it, the Africa of my dreams doesn’t exist any more. Still would love to go see it and would love to fish and hunt many species. Tiger fish, Nile perch, Buffalo, kudu, eland, and many more if budget and time were not a factor. Don’t see it happening though...

From: TrapperKayak

Eland is by far the best eating animal I ate over there, out of 10 different ones or so. Next, for me, was Cape Buffalo. Rich, hearty tasting dark meat (Buff). Eland was light and tender, full of wonderful flavor).

From: Highlife

Kudu and springbok eat good as well

Mountain Nyala, Bongo, and Cape Buffalo.

A bigger bull than the one I took when hunting with Ken Moody

12-Feb-21
The problem with Africa is That you can’t go just once. Ken Moody has Buffalo at $ 9950 all inclusive. People pay that for whitetail.
