Ngiyanibingelela from Virginia
« on: December 12, 2007, 06:08:18 pm »
Rider in the great commonwealth of Virginia..
 Firstly, I wish to extend an invitation to any ZA riders traveling to the east coast of the U.S. .. Please consider riding the mountains of Virginia and all states touching. it is beautiful country full or friendly people..Plenty of great canoeing and kyaking that is 99.9% croc and hippo free. Fishing is pretty good too.
 I have a cabin in the mountians of Virginia on the banks of the Shenendoah river and will host fellow riders.. room and board with a boat thrown in for good measure. i can probably dig up a motor bike  in a pinch too.
 Secondly, I am on my way back to your Beautiful country in late june For Safari and hopefully some good riding.. I would like to find some riders willing to have a fellow rider from across the pond tagalong for a couple days or help me secure a GS to ride about.. I could go for some good no nonsense info about bike renta or touring companies that have a locals stamp of approval..

What you going to hunt?
I have done quite a bit of that up in the N-TVL.

This time the only thing i really want in the bag is a nice Gembock... then whatever looks good.. i think a friend here in the states wants a zebra but we will see.
 i really want to do a lot of riding. acouple friends caught wind of my plans and might tag along on a bike trip. Now i just need to find a few bikes to rent and maybe a tour package... the tour package is low on the list though.. i have found sofar the people of your country to be quite beautiful... hope for a great trip..
  what do you usually hunt when out?

Some days its whatever I can afford, others its whatever stands still long enough for me to get a good shot.

I've taken almost all the common species in the N-TVL , Impala, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Red Haartebeest, Gemsbok, Warthog, Bushpig.
No Eland as yet, but then that too much meat for me to handle anyway.

Each year I try do one plains hunt and one bush hunt.

Tree hugger. Mmm. I dislike hunting as a sport. Does that make me a tree hugger? I much prefer to shoot animals with a camera lens. I like to see them alive.... to see them move... and then capture that moment.

Why do you enjoy shooting "whatever stands still long enough for me to get a good shot"? This does not seem like "the thrill of the hunt" that I have read about, but more like the hunts of earlier colonial times I have read about. Or am I misunderstanding something?

Sometimes conditions are really bad. I said good shot.
I have hunted for 4 days after one type of game and not had success before.
At the end of that 4 day stint I went out looking for anything I could find that was edible.

Hey now.. yall don't hijack this thread and turn it into an ethics forum....
 kejago do you eat meat?
 if you do the whole anti hunting thing falls on deaf ears... killing is killing in my book.. a cow is a beautiful animal and i hate to have to look at it for a while and then help loose it's mortal coil just for a burger...
 grave.. bahave and stop baiting.. Bad boy!!!!!
 i eat what i hunt i give away what i dont eat and all the people invloved  be it A PH, Skinner , tracker and processor all share in the wealth... enough said about that now..

  Now we can concentrate on the important matter at hand which is (and this can be a group project) how I (Loftus) can have a rockin good time in your beautiful country on the back of a bike for about 7 days.. :D..

Yo bloochdog, i just moved to NC (Apex) this month. Maybe we can get together for a weekend trip up the mountains? My Family and me. I've been to the Virginia mountains and would love to take my fam there. But not to the "Deliverance" people.  ;)
