Trophy Sable Hunting Methods

Hunting methods for this 5-Star trophy sable bull hunting safari will consist of early morning drives looking for a trophy bull in areas that are known to have trophy-sized sable. The terrain is varied but sable bulls are somewhat territorial and are known to frequent the same areas. Once a trophy bull is spotted, a stalking plan will be made to get you into a shooting position to take your trophy bull sable of a lifetime.

If you are hunting your trophy sable with a bow or crossbow, you may hunt out of a blind. It is also possible that you will hunt the sable by spot and stalk on foot. The outfitter is confident that he can get you your trophy bull sable on this hunt!

"I would recommend this hunt although I would recommend John at Discount African Hunts even more. Areas can get hot and cold but John always knows the hot spots to send hunters." 

"Totally recommend!"

"I booked a plains game hunt in South Africa through Discount African Hunts.  The price was half of what other outfitters were selling the same package of animals for.  After being assured by John Martins that this offer was for real I went ahead and booked.  Everything turned out just like I was told and I took 7 beautiful trophies on the trip of my lifetime.  Don't let the low prices hold you back.  I am sure I will never take a hunt of this quality again at a price like I paid. My hunt was awesome!"
