Bow hunting is typically a dry season endeavor as much of the hunting tends to be done at waterholes. However, if you are willing to use some strategic thinking you can have a very successful hunt even when there is water everywhere and the bush is thick.
Firstly the bush creates extra cover for getting up close on a stalk. Secondly animals like to use seasonal water points and there are plenty of game trails on the way to these water points. The trick is to spend a day or two surveying the land and deciding where to build your blind. Our current intrepid bow hunters erected these blinds well away from usual water points.
The first on an exceedingly well used game trail. The addition of salt close to the blind created a point to get those animals to stop and linger for a while. A zebra was the first animal taken with a bow by the builder of this blind! How’s that for true hunting spirit?
