Trophy Plains Game Hunting Methods
Hunting methods for this 5-Star trophy plains game hunting safari package will consist of early morning drives searching for suitable game. Once suitable members of the species you are targeting are spotted, you will begin a stalk on foot until a good shot opportunity is presented. Some walking and glassing will also occur.
If you are bow hunting, the months of June – September during the new moon are the best times to go. It can get hot in some of the blinds during the middle of the day, so appropriate clothing should be worn.
The Kudu Rut
If you plan on adding a trophy kudu to your package, the best time to hunt with a rifle is during the kudu rut. The kudu rut in this area is from late April until the middle of June. Big kudu are also taken in the dry winter months of July-September by sitting on waterholes similar to what would be done when bow hunting.Trail cameras are used to identify areas that have daytime activity by big kudus.
There are some exceptional plains game trophies on these concessions. Pricing for additional plains game animals along with select dangerous game may be viewed via the link below:
Most hunters will overnight in Johannesburg at the Afton Guest House and then the outfitter will have you picked up in the morning and transported a 3-hour drive by vehicle to the hunting concession, where you can settle in and sight in your rifles in preparation for the next day's hunt.
You will have the opportunity to visit an excellent taxidermist before you head home. They will also handle your dip and pack and shipping should you wish to ship your trophy to your taxidermist in the US. This outfitter uses the only taxidermist that I would recommend in all of Africa!

"This was our first time to Africa and it was incredible. We were able to harvest all the animals on our wish list and they were fantastic quality trophies. I would recommend this hunt as you are only about 2 hours from Johannesburg. Thanks to Discount African Hunts we connected with an awesome outfitter and took some great trophies!."
"Best advice I can give is don't let the word DISCOUNT scare you. I was skeptical but I have hunted all over and I can tell you these trips are top notch! Everything was described accurately, no surprises. I took 9 trophies - almost every one made gold medal. I would highly recommend John Martins and Discount African Hunts. I already have another trip booked with them and I am looking at 2 more. I got everything I wanted and saved thousands doing it!"
"This was my first trip to Africa and can positively say it will not be my only one. Words simply can not describe the events of the hunt. I hunted with both longbow and compound and took a total of 12 animals. I speak volumes to Discount African Hunts. These guys know the ins and outs. Thank you for my first Amazing African Adventure!"
