Nestled near the Caprivi Strip, Eldoret Safaris’ vast properties border the unfenced Bushman tribal lands that contain several different ecosystems. This is a classic African “on foot” plains game safari behind bushmen trackers. Well known as some of the finest in the world, they will not disappoint. Each morning starts with the search for fresh tracks or following up on the tracks from the last evening. Most days will result in slow tracking 6-12 miles, but nothing quite matches the excitement of tracking a free ranging Eland, Kudu, or Big Bull Giraffe. Every evening, fresh game tenderloin along with local favorites and a cold Windhoek lager await your return.

After a successful hunt in the bushmen lands, you will travel less than two hours to spend the next few nights on the banks of the Okavango river. You’ll be comfortable in our well-appointed bungalows with open air Brie’s during your river adventure. You’ll spend two days fishing for the the mighty Tiger Fish along with many other unusual river fish. Making up the border of southern Angola and North East Namibia Hippos, crocs, and massive amounts of bird life call this river home. This adventure is a rare treat of unspoiled Africa in one of the safest countries on the continent.

MINIMUM BID: $2,500

Hunt Black Bear in Canada| Four Corners Chapter SCI Auction Items

Black Bear Hunt plus Wolf – High Level, AB, Canada | Silver Fox Outfitters

Black bear hunting with Silver Fox Outfitters in High Level, Alberta, Canada. Two hunters may hunt for three days. This event includes one bear each. Hunters will hunt from tree-stands or blinds.

The outfitter will provide transport to and from stands or blinds. Meals and outfitter tent accommodations are included. Hunters may add one bear tag per hunter for $750 USD. Wolf may be added for $150 USD per hunter for the license fee. The hunt may be upgraded to a five-day hunt at $425 USD per day per hunter. Additional hunters may be added for $3,125 USD per hunter. Non-hunters may be added at $150 per non-hunter per day.

Not included: Travel to and from High Level, Alberta, Canada, taxidermy, shipping, import fees, packaging, booze, smokes.  The license fee of $400 USD is not included.

This hunt is for spring of 2019 or 2020.

From Silver Fox:
The Silver Fox Outfitters “two tag” hunters have averaged more than a 150% shooting rate for close to a decade. This is one of the highest success rates in the province. We manage this by regulating the number of hunters we take, using fresh quality bait hauled to the hunting area in our own reefer trailer, setting strategically located baits, and by ensuring that our guides know the area we hunt. Our past success rate speaks for itself and when compared to the possibly less than 50% hunter success in other provinces/states, it’s easy to see that Alberta is the place to be for fantastic bear hunting. Eric Rauhanen and the Silver Fox Outfitters “team” are the right choice for you.

THE BEARS

Our area has one of the highest trophy bear populations in North America with about 10 to 15% being color phased. Light hunting pressure allows us to produce a higher percentage of larger, older boars for our hunters. This is representative of a mature population. Bears are so plentiful here that each hunter is allowed two tags.

BAIT HUNTING

We use beavers, butcher scraps, bakery scraps, restaurant grease, oats, molasses and specialty bear lures for bait and it’s hauled to a site and stored in a 28 ft reefer trailer. Our baits are set when there’s still snow on the ground, several weeks before your arrival. Maintained regularly they become the bear’s primary food source. Baits are accessible by four-wheel drive trucks, all-terrain vehicles or jet boat. As nocturnal animals, bears are hunted primarily in the evening. Hunters are taken to active bait sites in the late afternoon. Portable tree stands are the preferred method in our area. They are 12 to 15 feet up and 15 to 20 yards from the bait. We are quite far north and the sun sets late. We are normally finished hunting by 10:30 p.m. and out of the bush by midnight.

SPOT & STALK

Few things can compare to the excitement of stalking trophy bears. We offer both five-day as well as the recommended ten-day hunt. They are normally restricted to one hunter per guide to ensure a maximum number of opportunities at quality bears. Highly mobile spike camps are utilized, allowing the hunter to instantly move to where the game is and to cover more ground. Hunters that have spot and stalk hunted know that nothing compares to taking a trophy bruin from the ground.

BAG LIMIT

We hunt a two-bear area; each tag can be purchased individually. Your second tag can be purchased optionally at any time during your hunt. We have crippled bear policy i.e. it cost you a tag.

WHAT TO BRING

Hunters are responsible for their own personal equipment. A complete and detailed list is sent several weeks before your arrival, or Silver Fox can e-mail you now if you’d like. It will include such items as a camera with lots of memory, warm quiet clothing, rain gear, rubber boots, sleeping bag and personal effects. For entry into Canada, you need a passport.

Senate Passes Act, Recognizing Sportsmen’s Access Priorities

Senate Passes Natural Resources Management Act, Recognizing Sportsmen’s Access Priorities

Congressional-Sportsmens-FoundationFebruary 12, 2019 (Washington, DC) – The Senate approved the Natural Resources Management Act (S. 47), which contains many longstanding priorities advocated by the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF), on a bipartisan vote of 92 – 8.

Introduced by Energy and Natural Resources (ENR) Committee Chair and Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC) Member Senator Lisa Murkowski (AK) along with Senator Maria Cantwell (WA), this comprehensive package of legislation includes numerous provisions that will improve access for sportsmen and women and will provide resources for habitat conservation programs. Following introduction in January, nearly 50 organizations submitted a support letter urging Senate Leadership to consider S. 47. Some of the priority sporting provisions in this bill include:

  • Authorizing the transportation of archery equipment through National Park Service (NPS) Units.
  • Directing Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) lands to be open for hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting unless specifically closed.
  • Directing the NPS, BLM, USFS, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to annually identify lands where sporting related activities are permitted, but where access is currently unavailable or restricted.
  • Permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund with 3% or $15 million of annual appropriations made available for the purpose of securing additional access for hunting, fishing, recreational shooting, and other outdoor related activities.

    SCI posts (1)

“The Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation applauds the Senate Leadership for bringing this important legislation for sportsmen and women to the floor for a vote,” said CSF President Jeff Crane. “This is common sense legislation that is the result of years of negotiations with Congressional champions to get to this point, and CSF will work with the House of Representatives to pass this legislation and get it signed into law.”

Sen. Murkowski provided a statement on the Senate floor. “This package contains huge wins for Americans.” She continued, “It also expands and enhances access for our sportsmen and women on federal lands for hunting, fishing, and other outdoor activities.”

During his floor speech, Ranking Member of the ENR Committee and CSC Vice-Chair Senator Joe Manchin said, “This package enjoys the support of numerous stakeholder organizations across the political spectrum. For example, the National Wildlife Federation and the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation are two of its strongest and most dedicated advocates; and I thank them for their support.”

He continued, “The Natural Resources Management Act will enhance and expand sportsmen’s access by making federal lands in West Virginia and throughout the nation open unless closed for fishing, hunting, recreational shooting, and other outdoor activities. As a hunter myself, and as Vice-Chair of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, I know how frustrated sportsmen’s groups have been trying to get their bills passed the last few years.”

###
Since 1989, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) has maintained a singleness of purpose that has guided the organization to become the most respected and trusted sportsmen’s organization in the political arena. CSF’s mission is to work with Congress, governors, and state legislatures to protect and advance hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping. The unique and collective force of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus (CSC), the Governors Sportsmen’s Caucus (GSC) and the National Assembly of Sportsmen’s Caucuses (NASC), working closely with CSF, and with the support of major hunting, angling, recreational shooting and trapping organizations, serves as an unprecedented network of pro-sportsmen elected officials that advance the interests of America’s hunters and anglers.
