Namibian reference – David Vance USA – Virginia.

Just returned from a hunting trip to Namibia with AfricaPredator and his crew. The area just outside of Okahanja is vastly wild beyond belief.  It holds the largest cheetah population in the world within 150 kilos of the town. The general area is extremely dangerous with Lion, Cheetah, Hyena and Leopard.  AfricaPredator and I, along with François his brother, Nick, walked within 100 yards of a growling Leopard while tracking an Oryx.  Nick also had a Cheetah pass within 20 meters of him.  The walk through the bush gave me a rush like no other I have ever experienced.  I knew that danger lurked about and we were constantly on guard.  A Leopard had been spotted in the area three times within the last two days.

Results were an absolute blast, literally, more than I could have imagined.   It is a pleasure to call with professional people who know what they are doing. Watching the team work together in total darkness without even speaking, says something about precision and calling ability.  I came away with lots of education in the way it is done.  We called at night and due to the moon, our first night’s worth of calling was 2 hours before the moon made an appearance. The second night yielded about 2 1/2 hours, and the third night approximately 3 hours.  So, in total we had about 8 hours calling time.

We called in and shot 26 Jackal and a cat, but due to safety reasons of getting too far away from the truck at night, and an odd miss or two, we could only find 17 of the Jackal.  I was constantly warned of dangers in the areas and never wondered far to pick up Jackal.  In fact I never went alone to retrieve any.  That was left to Africa Predator and his crew.  On one particular hunt, we called for about 10 minutes and had 5 Jackal respond to the call, and we got all 5.  Average shooting range was about 40 to 110 yards.  In the light, it seemed a lot closer.  The Jackal seemed to trot continuously, and offered only little standing shot opportunities.  They circle downwind as coyotes do.

Our basic setup consisted of placing camo material completely around the truck.  We had more than one person manning rifles on the same dog as to cut down on escapes. Between the hunts, we socialized, drank coffee and talked on both day and night hunts.  At night, we kept the lights on around the truck.  In the wild at night, one needs to be aware of what might be lurking about.

In addition to predator hunting, I took a fine Wart Hog at an African water hole.  I used a 308 which yielded a one-shot kill.  The distance was approximately 140 yards.  The hog had very nice tusks and was a good specimen. As well, I took a very respectable Springbuck, again with the 308.  That one was taken at 280 yards.

Some other critters I hunted were Dassies and crows.  Dassies are rock chuck-like animals and are found in very rocky outcroppings.  Due to time limits, I was only able to shoot a few, but thoroughly enjoyed.  We were warned about the area where we hunted them.  A lioness and her cub had been spotted at that place just a short time before we hunted there.  So, my entire trip was full of suspense. I personally skinned the nicest Jackal taken during the trip and will have it tanned and shipped to me.  The black back on a decent Jackal is a beautiful thing, and it will make a great addition to my trophy room. 

One thing I found of interest was the fact that I was constantly drinking water, yet rarely had to go to the bathroom.  Gary commented that on the Wart Hog stand, he watched me drink about three or four bottles of water within a three hour period, and still I did not go to the bathroom.  The climate there is hot and dry at this time of year, and the body uses the water almost completely.  I was able to capture most of the hunts on film, including the night hunts.

Of other interest were termite mounds, some of which were over 8 feet tall.  All were facing North, due to the pull of gravity.  We counted 85 termite mounds within eye sight as we sat at the water hole.

The variety of animals there is astounding.  We saw several species during the hunt, and at night while calling, and on the way back to camp.  One of the most unusual critters I have ever seen is the locally named Karoo Kangaroo, but true name is Spring Hare.  This little critter looks like a rabbit’s body, hops like a Kangaroo, and has a long black tail.  That is the strangest thing I have seen.  These little animals were constantly fooling us while calling.  Many times they would come to the call and appeared to be a Jackal at first sight.  As a result, it’s important to identify the target before shooting.

This time of year is a great time to hunt in Namibia for predators.  It is Jackal breeding season (late April), and it is also lambing season for sheep, and that spells great opportunities for predators – as long as the moon is good, as it was.  The one neighbouring farm had just lost 80% of it’s live stock due to Lion, Jackal, Hyena, Cheetah and Leopard.  So, we knew we were sitting in an area with high predation numbers, and with a good location, success was basically guaranteed.

This is the finest hunt I have ever been on, with lots of shooting opportunities, not to mention the cautious nervousness of knowing I was in Lion and Leopard country.   All I can say is that I am looking forward to the day that I might be able to return.  There is nothing like it.  You owe it to yourself to try a hunt like this.  You won’t regret it.

If you require bigger more dangerous game please enquire.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE;    We do NOT market CANNED or hunting from trucks for antelope and such game, it is walk and stalk, keeping in mind that we market Namibia, and safety must be of our strictest concern due to larger predators. On booking any hunt your medical clearance must be submitted to us with any medication you are cleared to consume as well as you blood group must be marked on your pants visible to all in case of emergency.

Prices for package deal are not binding as from the time you enquired till your booking it may have increased, so you will need to confirm the prices quoted. Drop me a mail here sellis@telkomsa.net for other information you may require. The very best times to hunt predators in April to July it’s a breeding period and a good time to call.

Price per person from Friday to Monday is $5500-00

We would need to have all relevant information regarding allergies etc before a booking is finalized. We also require a letter from your doctor confirming your good health and stating whatever medication you are subjected to.

In South Africa / Namibia our predators are under severe persecution and it is just about impossible to call them in the daylight hours, so predator hunts will be conducted at night. We use the very best hunting equipment the world can offer and we have excellent success rates.

See below for information that will need to be submitted to us.

Thank you for your enquiry – your interest in Feather & Fur is appreciated.

For references on our hunts we can provide you with names and contact details no problem.
