...in the last 24 hours the weather was changing almost every hour! We used a „small window of opportunity“ this morning to hunt for a 2b buck...and guess what? ... I came home not only with a beautiful trophy, but great experiences, learned a lot from the professional hunter in that area and also start to see mountain hunting in a different light....👉🙏...it is very challenging, but also very rewarding! Thanks to the people that invited me to their well managed hunting grounds. The whole story will soon be told again with moving pictures on our YouTube channel. 🎥 #hunting_photo #pdsafaris #peterdafner #snowhunting #mountainhunting #bergjagd #waidmannsheil #waidgerecht #huntingeurope #gams #chamois #hunters #huntingblog #jaktbilder #trophyhunter #germanhunter #oxota #chasse

A couple of weeks ago, I was guiding hunts in Tanzania and outside temperatures were around 35 degrees. Today I was invited to hunt in Germany with outside temperature around minus 2 degrees. My fiancee says I'm crazy, I call it passion ... It's so nice to see people caring about their hunting areas, organizing 1 or 2 big driven hunts per year in order to keep population numbers fair and have little pressure! With that, the game stays very calm and active during daylight hours! The public does not have the slightest idea, how much time, dedication, discipline and money it takes to do wildlife management like that and make it a better place for future generations. Thanks for a wonderful hunting experience. (I missed one wild boar and harvested 3 young boars) #peterdafner #pdsafaris #hunting_photo #hunterslife #jagd #jakt #rifle #oxota #sauer404 #zeissv8 #waidmannsheil #waidgerecht

As with many things in life ...all good things are coming to an end. The same here in the Selous Game Reserve. Last hunt of the season, last hunting day finished and this is the time to say thanks! Thanks to all our clients that made this great season possible, thanks to Tanzania, it’s wildlife and its people, thanks to Mkwawa Hunting Safaris with their great blocks and logistic support, thanks to our Facebook friends for all the comments, likes and „following“. Most of all, thanks to my fiancée Kristine for her understanding, hard work and dedication....in case she doesn‘ t know...I love her👉🙏 As Karen Blixen said „I am were I ought to be!“ cheers from K5...PD

This is still part of our story and adventure from two days ago. Here is the skull of an old Lion warrior, with teeth worn almost like a Hippo. He probably only had one or two more years to live, before a pack of Hyenas would have torn him apart. I am grateful that our efforts to protect remote wildlife areas gave him a peaceful life . Again and again...protecting through sustainable utilization. Thanks. PD

This is part of our story and how it all began.. Hunting a truly wild Lion in modern times is challenging and expensive with very regulated and limited offtake. Did you know that following details are applicable to all Lion hunts in Tanzania and other countries are similar. - only males 6 years and older may be hunted
- not allowed to be hunted, if within a pride..If within a pride that has Cubs younger than half year ...
If mistakes are made there are hefty fines for the professional hunter and if a Lion is younger than 4 years, trophy may not be exported.
This is just for information to those people that think that there is not much to it in Lion hunting. It needs proper management to the areas, good monitoring and dedication. End result: take very few, but safe a lot for the future...
Cheers from K5 Camp..PD

Today is a very special day for our client and myself with emotions going up and down like a roller coaster ...but let me start how it all began a couple of days ago. We heard Lions roaring 2-3 miles from camp and decided to bring out a couple of baits in order to try and get a look at them. Nothing happened until yesterday morning, when we found some fresh tracks of two big males walking together. Baits were changed around, new drags connecting the baits and what do we find late afternoon? These two old guys had killed a 1 year old hippo early in the morning and we only found it because of some vultures in the tree. Quick decisions were made, tied up the hippo to a tree, fixed a trail cam and sat until last light...but no show..:-(
...this morning we walked in with first light and found them both feeding. When my binoculars were focused, I could hardly believe my eyes! The biggest and oldest Lions I have ever seen in the Selous. However, when we made the decision to shoot, they spotted our movement and disappeared into the nearby thicket. Can you imagine my heart dropping down and you did not want to see my face. Anyway, we quickly put up a mobile blind and gave it another try. The thoughts and emotions going through your mind, when sitting in a blind is unbelievable. Eventually at 8.15 both guys showed up again and the rest is simple and clear: hunters pay for conservation and because of these hunters coming to visit, we can protect remote areas and their wildlife. Sustainable utilization of natural resources ...protect for future generation....our dedication. Thanks to Mother Nature. Cheers. PD

We had a bad start this morning!! When we stalked within shooting range of a big crocodile, the client realized the scope was all foggy inside and no chance for a shot! Driving back to camp, get another gun...no more croc🎇
I decided to do a checkup on our Eland area....well check out this guy! Maybe some Giant Eland moving down from Cameroon?!..😂👉🙏

Raining season is coming to the Selous and we battled today to get around...you know what black cotton soil is when it’s wet? Well, we got stuck several times and my sense of humor dropped a couple of notches...anyway, we had to work with what we got and decided to go fishing..👉🙏...a couple of Tigerfish later all were happy again..

We had an exciting day with ups and downs...followed a nice Daggaboy early morning for two hours and busted him twice inside a thicket with too small a gap for a good shot. Later we saw a big Eland and a huge Warthog and both of them got away with heads held high. Late afternoon our luck changed and we managed to get up close and personal with a zebra and a Nyassa Wildebeest...

Today was a relaxing day in camp with fishing along the mighty Ruaha River...we only caught a small tigerfish and lost some big Vundu...:-(...guess that’s why I am a hunter. Tomorrow we move back to K5 and hope to collect some more different species...stay tuned for more adventure. Cheers from R1 Camp

Magic moments again in the Selous today! The last safari of this season produced another great Tom Leopard and I am proud to be part of „active conservation“. Legal hunting always was and will be the future to wildlife! Sustainable utilization of natural resources ...not more and not less.

The rainy season starts slowly. Luckily it rained only last night. This morning the air was fresh and the tracks well visible. We saw a lot of game. A hartebeest killed and an old leopard in the tree. This afternoon the cat did not come, we'll try tomorrow morning ...

After two days in town, I feel my batteries are fully charged again. Today, one client and myself are flying to the Selous for 17 days of adventure 1 x1. Only a few species and some fishing is on the wishlist, but I am sure we are going to have a good time. Let nature guide us....👉🙏 #peterdafner #pdsafaris #hunting #prohunter #jagd #jakt #ethicalhunting #huntingblog #outfitters

Flying to Dar es salaam with clients, because we finished early, gives me the opportunity to catch up with some office work and seafood platters at selected restaurants. I also enjoy watching the dhows crossing in front on the Indian Ocean, which throws you back in time....tonight it shall be Lobster, calamari and prawns with a nice bottle of South African Sauvignon blanc...cheers from dar.

Team Dan M. two more Buffalos, team PD one Hartebeest in the salt, Zebra wounded and lost (unfortunately that happens) ...I think with 6 good Buffalos in the bag for two clients within 3 days, that it is safe to say: " our management plan of the areas, the way we hunt (50% daggaboys) is going the right direction! Hunters pay for conservation! We strongly believe in sustainable utilization of natural resources! Cheers. PD
