Wing Shooting Hunts in Africa
Wing shooting hunts in Africa are slowly gaining a reputation as the "Ÿnew Argentina” of bird hunting. In addition to world-class waterfowl hunting, Africa offers high-volume bird hunting for species such as dove and sand grouse that rivals anything available on other continents. Locals have been enjoying the excellent wing shooting hunts in Africa for decades, but it is in the last 20 years that Africa has emerged onto the wing shooter’s map as a primary destination to enjoy the type of high-volume shooting that attracts the serious wing shooter.
Wing shooting hunts in Africa are led by South Africa's burgeoning wing shooting industry. Many of its nine provinces now offer multiple outfitters that offer dedicated wing shooting hunts for international sportsmen. South Africa offers both waterfowl hunting and upland bird hunting. Over 20 species of birds are available for the visiting sportsman. The best wing shooting months are June, July and August. These months coincide with South Africa’s winter, which is also peak safari season for plains game and big game hunters. Most wing shooting in Africa is for two to four days in duration and is added on to the end of a traditional safari.
Common bird species hunted in southern Africa include Sand grouse and Quail. Two species of geese are available to hunt; the Egyptian goose and the Spur-winged goose. Popular ducks include the Yellow Bill, the African Shell duck and the White-faced Whistling duck along with several species of Teal. Upland hunters will enjoy hunting over dogs for various species of Frankolin, Guinea fowls, Doves and Pigeons.
Namibia also has a few outfitters that offer wing shooting hunts for the visiting sportsman. The wing shooting season in Namibia runs from May through November. The best wing shooting hunts in Africa normally occur between July and the middle of October. Most wing shooting hunts in Africa are set up for two to four hunters. Some of the species available include the Namaqua sand grouse, Double banded sand grouse and the Burchell sand grouse. Laughing doves, Cape turtle doves, Frankolin, Spurfowls and Helmeted guinea fowl fill out the roster of available targets. The sheer number of species available along with the volume of birds makes for great wing shooting hunts in Africa.

"In August 2014 I took a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts in the Northwest Province of South Africa. The PH's worked hard to customize the hunt for me as I wanted a challenging stalk ending with taking the lioness at close range by an open sighted double rifle. They exceeded my expectations as 12 miles of tracking ended with me shooting the highly agitated lioness at a distance of 25 yards with a couple of rounds of 450 NE".
"I highly recommend a lioness hunt with Discount African Hunts."
"I was hunting with my son and my batchmate from school. We had an experience of a life time and will definitely repeat the experience again. The weather was perfect. We shot Kudu / Zebra / Wildebeest / Impala / Red Hartebeest / Blesbuck / a day of bird shooting."
"We took back memories for a life time and will surly recommend the experience to other hunters."
"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!."
