Bow Hunts in South Africa

Bow hunts in South Africa are one of the greatest hunts that a bow hunter can experience.  The sheer abundance of game and multitude of differing terrains offers endless possibilities for planning a bow hunting adventure.   Bow hunts South Africa are also one of the most affordable bow hunts for the international bow hunter.  Nowhere else can you take the same amount of magnificent trophies as can be taken on plains game bow hunts in South Africa.  With South Africa having over 25 million animals, it is hard to leave this country empty handed.  South Africa allows the use of all types of archery equipment including crossbows.  South Africa does have minimum poundage requirements for bows depending on the class and size of animal that will be hunted.

For plains game, South Africa is unrivaled by any other country.  The number of available species is mind-boggling and due to strong conservation policies, the quantities of animals that are available stretch one’s imagination.  South Africa’s game ranching industry has developed into one of the world’s greatest hunting destinations for the archer.  Several of these game ranches have converted to bow huntsonly operations andthey offer some of the best bow hunts in the world.  Due to the dry conditions in Northern South Africa, waterhole hunting from blinds has developed into a primary hunting method to facilitate getting archers close to their quarry.  Bow hunts in South Africa’s southern regions require more spot and stalk hunting due to wet conditions.

Bow hunts in South Africa for dangerous game also offer the bow hunter a wide variety of possibilities.  South Africa allows archery equipment to be used for the taking of dangerous game.  Again, minimum poundage requirements are in effect for taking these large and dangerous animals.  A cottage industry has arisen that allows for the hunting of captive-raised lions.  These lions are raised and then released into large hunting preserves of several thousand acres.  South African law requires that the lion be allowed to acclimate to his surroundings for a period of weeks.  Then a hunt is conducted on foot by tracking the lion until a confrontation occurs.  This is an extremely exciting hunt and also can produce lions of exceptional mane qualities.  Bow hunts in South Africa are truly an archers dream

"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!"

"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!."
