1. The last hunt of the Season

Once again we have been blessed to meet and hunt with great people. Our friends were bow hunting only and arrived at Harloo with great expectations. Well... With our excellent staff and a passion for what we do we managed to provide great success.


Please see pictures below of the animals taken with bow and arrow from our pit blinds on Harloo. I also want to mention that not one animal was wounded or lost on this safari with bow and arrow.

2. Important factors to take in consideration to make your bow hunt a success

When you want to make your booking for a bow hunt you must take the following factors in consideration.

  • It is important to look for dates over dark moon periods when you want to make a reservation. Animals tend to drink at night during full moon.
  • The best time for bow hunting is from the 1st May to the end of August.
  • Ask the outfitter what type of blinds you will be hunting from and what the shot distances will be at the blinds. 

The following factors will improve your success?

  •  DO NOT attempt a shot if the view of your target or the flight of your arrow is obstructed in any way.  
  • Know your shot distance. Do not guess the distance range it.  
  • Only attempt shots at the “Vital Area” (Kill zone) of an animal. 
  • Study your shot placements on the different animals you want to hunt.
  • Pick a spot in the center of the kill zone, aim for that spot, squeeze the trigger and follow through.         
  • DO NOT attempt shots at a moving animal. 
  • Search diligently to track down and recover any wounded game. 
  • Respect fellow-hunters / non-hunters / landowners / their property and their rights. 
  • Only hunt and operate well within your level of competency.
  • DO NOT attempt a shot if another animal is standing behind the target animal.
  • Always use new (sharp) broad heads.

What equipment to take with on your bow hunt.

  •  Range finder and an extra pair of batteries.
  • Binoculars
  • Flashlight 
  • Facemask 
  • 2 Dozen arrows and broad heads
  • Extra release (Trigger) if you hunt with one.
  • General repair equipment for your bow
  • We do not recommend mechanical heads but some faster bows work well with them.
  • Good camouflage clothing. Camo is legal. Leafy 3D suits work well for bow hunting in tree stands. Any black or dark top for ground blind hunting will do. 

3. Weather and Condition of our Animals 

Last month (September) was tough on the animals. We did not have any winter rain which we usually get during the season. Because of this, green grass and leaves on the trees have disappeared rapidly over the last month. Fortunately we got some good rain just in time a few week or two ago. It seems that we are going to have a normal season with good rain that will provide excellent hunting opportunity for 2020. 

4. Marketing

We have already secured our booth space for the SCI convention in Reno for 2020 and we are looking forward to see you again. We will be at booth #1190

Dear Friends  - In previous newsletters we have asked a big favour and we want to ask again that you please write something about your experience with us on http://huntingreport.com/enter-hunting-report/. Marketing is a very costly expenditure and business is tough with the political problems and the weak economy. For those who have already posted we thank you. It is truly appreciated!
