Bow hunting African dangerous game packages
What to expect

Bow hunting African dangerous game packages are for bow hunters who have hunted most of the African plains game and are looking to push their bow hunting boundaries. Bow hunting African dangerous game (and for that matter bow hunting any dangerous game anywhere in the world) takes nerves of steel and better than average bow hunting equipment.

At times authorities make decisions that we do not understand. However, in the case of bow hunting African dangerous game, the legal requirements make more sense than not. In potential life threatening situations, it is to the advantage of the bow hunter to make use of specific quality bow hunting equipment. If not, it may cause the bow hunter his / her life. Common sense dictates not to use mechanical broad heads for bow hunting heavy-set dangerous game like Cape buffalo. Mechanical broad heads work extremely well on soft-skinned dangerous game like the African lion.

Of the African Big 5 dangerous game animals, we consider the Cape buffalo as the most dangerous game animal to hunt. They are just mean, ornirary and vengeful and it looks like they hate you personally – as per Robert Ruark.
