Hunting Destinations

Unread post by TikkaT3 » Mon May 08, 2017 3:01 pm

Hi,

Winter is here and biltong is needed. Looking for a farm that has a strip on it, or close-by? Not looking for anything fancy, we're looking for a self-catering destination. Not keen on the USD yanky trophy hunting thing - we hunt for the pot.

Myself and a buddy plus our 2x missus' in a C182, sending a bakkie by road for all the gear and to bring the meat back.

Anyone with any info please can you advise/contact me?

I dont know. Maybe ask the animals you are going to shoot at 100m with a high powered rifle with a scope. They might tell you Afganistan, North Korea Iraq or Iran. Those guys shoot back. There is a challenge. Throw in a rhino while you are about it.
Maybe buy your biltong at the spar?

Really? And you expect a contribution like that to be taken seriously? Where do you buy your biltong or your sirloin or chicken or do you believe that the only ethical food comes out of the ground?

You should visit an abatoir one day and then decide which is more humane. Just saying.

Different strokes for different folks.
Guys believe rhino horns make them virile, elephant tusks look great on the mantle, shark finning for soup, pangolin scales for medicine and wholsale slaughter of dolphins in a Japanese bay because they eat the fishermans daily bread.
Just where does an individual draw the line? Personal taste I suppose.

Sure shooting for biltong is Ok, just not convinced the biltong is more enjoyable than the hunt.
I see pics of Dads proundly showinng pics of their sons with a bloody animal corpse around their necks.
Sorry doesn't do it for me.
I do believe in the long term some animals will only survive if farmed. To do that requires revenue and and most of that will come from hunting.
Bit if a catch 22.
Anyway guys, no offense meant and lets go back to aviation.
Enjoy your flight though I think the biltong will cost more than the preverbial R1000 hamburger. :D
