years ago, i had several experiences that didn’t sit well with me – bird hunting trips where money was paid, then more money when i got there, then more money when i left. it’s called “nickel and dimed”. when an outfitter does that, it leaves a sour taste in one’s mouth about either that type of hunting or the outfitter. when this occurs, it makes one either quit hunting, or change outfitters. i chose the second. i offer "all inclusive" packages. you know what it will cost before you buy. usually everything is included except tips (which most like in us dollars) and extra shells beyond the package. no games, just great wingshooting.

    The flights got changed which meant our outfitter was at the wrong terminal of the right airport. It took us several hours to get past that, but once on our way, the hunting went very smoothly. We stayed at a hotel our host had lined up, and while probably okay for most Hungarians, it was a little below what Americans expect. The food was in local restaurants or in the field and was very good. The shooting was very good, but a lot of the birds were quite low which meant no shooting. We did have a few spectacular drives with good bags. There was a lot of old world charm, and not, as bringing guns through the Budapest airport reminded me of and old war movie. Overall a good hunt for the money.

    Doug and Jackie Coe have created a quail hunting oasis in South Georgia at Pine Hill Plantation. Here you ride a mule drawn wagon or ride Tennessee Walkers to enjoy the dog work and scenery. This is a show built around great bird hunting. Wonderful food, wonderful lodge, and the hosts are first class people in every sense of the words. This is fine Southern Quail hunting in a luxury setting if there ever was.

    The Webb Farm is owned and operated by Bill and Debbie Webb, and run by Debbie and her capable staff of chefs, dog handlers. guides, waitresses, and farm manager. You hunt from a Kawaski Mule, rigged with high seats and a dog box so you can see all the action of the brace of dogs hunting the southern cover. The birds are not put and take, but rather raised scientifically on the farm and number anywhere from 5 to 10 thousand when the season opens in October. Your driver is your guide and safety is paramount. It is gentlemanly hunting as it should be.

    Having shot Western Europe, I wanted to give Eastern Europe a try. I booked a hunt through Ben Meike of Shooting in Slovakia and certainly was happy with the results. We were met at the airport in Vienna, bringing in our own shotguns was a breeze, and we took a wonderful ride through hill and dale to Chateau Bela, a completely restored, magnificent structure, and our home for the next three days. The rooms were the best I have found in Europe and that is saying something. The staff could not have been more accommodating, and the shooting was fantastic, especially for the American shooter, unaccustomed to the 'high' bird shooting of Western Europe. Here the birds were 20 to 40 yards high or higher, and while challenging to some extent, an average shooter could hit all he wanted, and/or wanted to pay for. There were some excellent drives with challenging birds and some easier drives to make sure the inexperience got their chances as well. Great lunches in the farm house on the grounds. Overall, a top notch quality outing.

    Argentina continues to be the wingshooting paradise. With friendly people and a dollar friendly environment, you can get a 'lot of bang for your buck' both literally and figuratively in Argentina. I have been going there for 25 years, and will head back there twice this year. While I don't shoot the volumes I used to - 1,500 shells a day -I still love the doves as far as you can see from horizon to horizon, and no, that isn't a joke. 150 to 200 pigeon limits are fine, and 25 to 40 ducks, depending on your location, make for excellent hunts as well. Research your outfitter and the meals and accommodations will be first class as well. Don't scrimp. If you only do this once, it is worth the money; and if you become addicted, like I have, you will be planning your next trip before you reach home.

    We arrived in Jo'berg where we were met by our PH, Henk Engelbrecht for 7 days of the finest wingshooting I have enjoyed, and after 45 years, I have enjoyed a lot. We stayed at Lechwe Lodge where we were surrounded by plains game and the occasional Cape Buffalo. Our shooting was morning and afternoon with a break in between, and we shot doves, Rock pigeons, Egyptian and Spur Wing geese, several species of ducks, driven guinea fowl ( a great treat), and francolin and quail over pointing dogs. The total cost, not including airfare, was about $3500 US, a bargain for an incredible South African wingshooting experience with one of the top outfitters there.
