IF YOU WANT A GIANT RED STAG AND DON’T WANT TO TRAVEL TO NEW ZEALAND THEN HERE IS A SUPER DEAL TO CONSIDER.
We work with a ranch in the Texas panhandle that has some of the finest red deer in North America. Years ago he artificially inseminated his females with the semen from some of the largest stags available in New Zealand. That is how he started his self sustaining herd on his place. Since then his best stag that has been his breeder stock the past few years will be available to hunt this December. In 2014 this stag had sheds that scored 460 gross points and this year his rack looks like it will be in the 460 to 480 range. This stag hunt is priced at $15,000 and is a super deal for someone wanting a super red deer. 3-day hunt includes 1×1 guiding, great lodging, meals, wine and airport pickup in Amarillo airport.

This is our top free-range South Africa cape buffalo hunt. It is a special permit normally priced at $25,000 for an area bordering Kruger National Park.

This permit is still good up to March 31, 2016 and has been reduced to $16,000. This is your traditional buffalo hunt, covering country by safari vehicle looking for fresh tracks of old bachelor bulls then following up on foot with trackers hoping for a clear shot. Buffalo come and go out of Kruger Park and there is also a resident population of about 350 buffalo typically on these 21,000 free-range acres. The “Big 5” roam this area, with the lions and leopards keeping plainsgame numbers down. There is only this one permit left so call ASAP if interested in a true trophy spot and stalk cape buffalo hunt.
HCU agent Bob Wodzisz recently returned from this hunt with his wife and good friends Mike & Paula Kovach who celebrated their 25th Anniversary on this trip. Mike took this great 13 year old bull to start their anniversary celebration in grand style. Bob mentioned that the group reported this as a great adventure with outstanding PH’s in some beautiful country where you are surrounded by different free ranging animals at every turn. Bob said this is the proper way to hunt Buffalo just like in the old days where you are tracking free range old bulls.
