Archery Buffalo

By ButchCoatonSafaris,

I was fortunate enough to see some wonderful new ground and hunt some buffalo with bows! This really is the purest form of hunting I have experienced in my long career. Now with Zim opening up bow-hunting, I hope to do more of this amazing stuff!

Humani Adventures

By ButchCoatonSafaris,

Another great hunt with friends Mike, Carol and Frank on Humani in the SVC. Some excellent trophies hunted between myself and another PH Ian Rutledge. Humani continues to be a premier destination for big leopard, buffalo and abundant fantastic plains game. We swapped around the hunters between the PHs, which is a good way of getting to see how the different PHs hunt and thereby learning more! Excellent marksmanship from the group and a super leopard was taken! 3 great cats taken this year so far and I will be starting next week for the last tag of the year. Thank you, Mike, Carol and Frank, for your continued support!

Hammond Hunt

By ButchCoatonSafaris,

I have not posted anything for ages and am going to try and catch up on the season so far!!
My friends and bow hunting mentors, Jeff and Dasha returned for their 6th safari with me in July. Ross Johnston was our 2nd PH. Based out of Hammond ranch in the SVC for 14 days, it was a hunt filled with highs and lows with a lot of laughs and stories in-amongst all that. Always enjoyable with a lot of hard hunting, long days, short nights, hasty meals, crawling, stalking, frustration, adrenalin filled close encounters and that feeling of hunting at its purest when doing it with a bow…
Thank you Jeff, Dasha and Ross as well as the trackers scouts and camp staff for an unforgettable 2 weeks. 
Till next time! 
Be safe

Huge Hog!
The “big pig”. Well done, Dash and Ross. That was always going to be your hog, Dash!
Jeff’s biggest kudu sport far! A nerve-wracking 30 mins and a great 51-yard shot. Makorokoto!

Last night at no 2…
Dasha was brave enough to let both Ringi and I shoot her “pink” bow. It was a huge success!
My PH for my birthday impala with the “pink bow”. Thank you, Dasha! It was a really good experience being on the other side.
