    Default Red Hartebeest in the Eastern Cape

    Greetings from Port Elizabeth (aka Gqeberha)

    My wife would dearly like to hunt a red hartebeest - ideally a representative size bull as I know she is going to want a skull mount, however I am willing to pay for a trophy animal if the price is right. None of the farms we usually hunt have any and my preliminary searches on the "interweb" have not yielded any positive results (meaning a farm offering a South African based price).

    There are plenty available once you head north of the Eastern Cape, although I am hoping to find one closer to home. Preferably within, say 250km / 2.5 hours drive of PE (possibly Grahamstown, Fort Beaufort, Somerset East, Cradock, Graaff Reinet areas).

    If anybody is willing to share a contact or point me in the right direction, that would be great.

    Thanks

    Hi Fish Hunter

    Posted below is the number of an ex Gunsite forum member who is in the area (PE) and may have the contacts for what you need.
    Treeman (his old GS handle), may be able to help you.
    Number is +27 82 414 1818
    Send him a WA or give him a call and chat further.
    His is Dave.

    I checked with him first if I can post his details so he knows that you may contact.

    He should know where to find your hartebeest.

    Hi Fire-stick and Spliffcat
    Thanks, I will contact Treeman.

    (It is a pity Treeman is no longer on Gunsite. I enjoyed his contributions)
