The Shooting Show — South African buffalo and Huntex 2013

Following last week’s ostrich and blesbok hunt, Bedfordshire rifle supremo Paul Childerley is out in pursuit of one of the Big Five, the formidable buffalo. But he’s after a soft-bossed cull beast as a way of keeping the herd strong and securing all the excitement of a big-five safari at an affordable price. We first get behind the scenes of a leading outfitter as Mugaba Safaris’ Patrick de Beer dispenses his hunting expertise to Paul and the camera. Then we head out for a sweltering stalk amid the bush, with the elusive buffalo bull awaiting at the end.

Staying in Africa, we visit Huntex 2013, the continent’s biggest hunting and shooting expo. With a mixture of big African names and some European companies you’ll recognise, it’s a show for everyone – and we make the most of it by searching out the best of the show. A South African taxidermist tells us what to look out for when you’re getting your trophy mounted, a new African hunting magazine is launched, and we meet one of the country’s best known wildlife artists, plus much more.
