African Safari

Recommended Posts

My buddy just got back from an African Safari!

He took a number of trophies, including a Hartbeest, an Impala, one other kind of antelope and a Kudu that he said will rank about #80 in the world record book, out of 1500 that are registered.

I'm sure he is going to have alot of interesting stuff to tell me and i'll try to pass some of it along.

I'm sure if you could afford it, it would be fun! Lots of different game to shoot and a totally different experience. I've read some nice stories in Bowhunter about African hunts. Maybe if I win the lottery tomorrow nite...

I've been seriously considering refinancing my house and adding a few $ to the ******** for a trip to Africa. It's not as expensive as one might think. A person can hunt Africa for a 5-7 days and come home with 5 plains animals for around $7500 maybe even less or about the same as or less than a guided Alaskan Moose hunt!

This guy is the real deal! It did'nt surprise me when he went on Safari...yes it did, I had'nt heard from him for awhile and got a little worried.

He gets into so many situations, it is unreal! He built his own kit Helicoptor and flys around the Mora area, he can take his 300 plus pound body and do a wheelie on his motorcycle beginning from the time you see him, until the time you can't!

I'll bet that anyone from the Mora area that reads this post, knows who he is to and I'm proud as hell that he and I are friends and have been for the last 26 years!

    • Sounds like next year you need to get ahold of Jonny P at Red Lake Remote Ice Fishing & Sleeper Rentals @RedLakeRemote. He can get you out there and move ya around! 😉  He may be full this year already then. 
    • I've been visiting Upper Red each year (annual trip) for the past 7 years.  I have had "success" in catching fish....but never really a "great day".  From conversations I have had over the years with other anglers I know that there can be some better days and some phenomenal days on Upper Red....and I realize you can't force a fish to bite. I've spent way more than I know I should have on lures, jigs, etc.  But always wanted to make sure I had anything the fish could ever want. I'm only able to fish Walleye once a year so I don't get a lot of time for practice.   Lets get this out of the way - I fly in from out of state.  I can only bring limited gear, so I am basically confined to a sleeper house.  No tents, machines, etc. to help me be mobile.  And since I am in a sleeper - I am also limited to the time I can come based on safe-ice.  Usually the week between Christmas & New-Years. So - knowing that moving farther from the crowds, being more mobile, moving more often etc. is not an option, are there any tips you can offer to catching more fish from a fish-house?   I use a dead-stick in one hole.  Usually with the usual spoon and a live minnow.  Or sometimes just a plain red hook and minnow. My other rod I jig with a minnow head and one of many jigs, lures, spoons, etc.     Does my jigging need to be constant or jig, pause, jig pause?   I just need some basic tips or guidelines so I can get a few more fish on the line.   I've watched all the Ice-Team and other videos I can possibly find.  I've read everything I can find from Northland as well as everyone else.  Not much out there specifically showing or explaining what to do or how to fish in this kind of situation.  Most are about first-ice and/or they are mobile.   Anything you could suggest would be greatly appreciated.  I look forward to this trip every year....would just like to make it a little better of an experience.   Thanks! Rob
    • And what would there version be?
    • and a couple pretty good running backs too!!!!!!!!   bring on the Tide!!!!!!!!!!
    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.
