Just got back from Africa & talk about hunters Mecca, We had a group of 5 that went down together, 3 of us for the first time & I think all this making lists for a first time hunter is somewhat misguided in the sence that other hunters I spoke with & the 2 that were with us, were going back to take animals that they had passed up on previous hunting trips because they didn't have them on thier lists. A prime example is the Red Duiker, this little elusive critter is so hard to shoot that if you don't shoot him when you see him, odds are you could be going back many times & never get a shot at one again. I think a better list should be a list of animals you have absolutly no interest in shooting, such as Zebra, which I ended up buying a rug while down thier already tanned cheeper than I could have hunted one. Anyway tell your PH what your after, but if you see a trophy of another species thats not on your (not interested list) go shoot it, bushbuck is another prime example of this, if you see a good one of these suckers change gears & go harvest it. Make another list of the hardest to harvest animals(blesbuck is definatly not on this list) & be an opportunist hunter, not the hunter ancored to my list hunter. After all one of the best things about Africa is the variety, so get em when you see them because the animals are'nt aware that they have to present themselve in the order you have them listed.
