This June I traveled down to the Limpopo of Area of South Africa. Ever since a little kid I also had a desire and dream to hunt Africa, and well it came true! I chose TDK Safaris because of the many different packages and animals they had to pursue! The prices were affordable and the accommodations were incredible! I had my own chalet with my own bed, own bathroom, my own house pretty much!! The food was unbelievably good, everything was fresh and tasted great! The hunt was truly incredible, we saw every animal you could think of! It was breath taking! In the mornings we would spot an stalk, then move toward the blinds later in the morning as it started getting hotter, after lunch we would sit in a blind and see literally hundreds of animals! I highly recommend this trip, and highly recommend booking with TDK Safaris for your next adventure!
I had a huge challenge on my hands, while hunting these beautiful creatures tat the good lord put on this earth to hunt, and those animals are the Blesbok. These Blesbok were a very tough hunt, a lot like hunting whitetail deer during the rut. The Rams were locked in with the females, so wherever she went, they went with her as well. Not only that, but both animals both have horns and were very very tough for me to recognize and identify which one was the Ram and which one was not. Thankfully, I had the guide by my side to help through this confusing process for myself! On the fourth day we were sitting over a waterhole, the action was slow, and my eyes were getting heavy. I remember standing up to stretch my legs for a second, and when I did I peeked out of the window and saw an animal coming, I said to my guide “Here comes something, oh wait I’m pretty sure its a Blesbok” He looked through his binoculars and replied back with “Yes, definitely a Blesbok.” I remember grabbing my bow and getting ready for that moment I have dreamed about. I was shaking like a leaf, and kept asking God to calm me down! The Ram came in at 30 yards, he got startled by something and I remember telling my guide panicking “Stop him, stop him” the guide made a squeak and the Ram stood long enough just for me to squeeze off a shot as I watched that Black Eagle Arrow soar right through the lungs. I could see blood pouring out and knew he couldn’t toat that Obsession bite very far. We found the Blesbok piled up not even 100 yards from the blind and I was out of words. These are the most beautiful animals I have ever seen, they are pure beauty. I am blessed to have harvested such a trophy, and cannot wait for it to be on the wall!
