Tell Me About the Wing Shooting Area
The hunting concession, which is just south of Namibia’s Etosha National Park, is about a 5-hour drive northwest from Windhoek. The nearest town is Outjo. The wing shooting concession consists of a mixture of thorn bush, savanna and some mountains. There is also a good population of plains game in this area and plains game is also available on this hunt.
What Wing Shooting Hunting Methods Will be Used?
The hunting day will start with coffee, tea or other beverages of your choice and some light food items. You will then proceed to one of the waterholes, arriving before 8:00 am and settle into some good concealing cover with enough ammo to experience the hundreds of sand grouse flying from all directions. Sand grouse fly at high speeds and make for challenging targets. At about 10 am the sand grouse stop flying until late in the evening. It is almost as if a switch is turned off, as it happens so suddenly. Then you will go back to the lodge for a delicious brunch.
The balance of the middle of the day will be hunting the riverbeds and open savanna from the truck while sometimes venturing into the thick bush on foot. On occasion a stalk will be done on birds that you have spotted.
Late in the day you will return to a water hole to enjoy the evening sand grouse flight before heading back to the lodge to enjoy some drinks around the fire pit and savor a top-quality meal. It just doesn’t get much better than this!
What will the Wing Shooting Lodge be Like?
The outfitter built this 4-star lodge with his own hands over a period of years. The hunter accommodations consist of individual chalets situated for privacy so that you can enjoy the sunrise or sunset from your patio. Be sure to bring your binoculars and something to drink! The chalets feature either a double bed or 2 larger single beds. All chalets have in-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. There are hair dryers in the rooms and daily laundry service is provided throughout your stay. The paths from the main lodge to the individual chalets are illuminated at night for safety. The camp has permanent power and there is both cell phone and internet service available in camp.
The food is just what you would expect from a 5-star lodge and the evening’s meal will surely be one of the highlights of the day, only rivaled by the hunting and the time you will spend in the Namibian bush.
