Every deer hunter has dreamed of owning their own hunting camp. Most camps or hunting cabins are usually weathered, or shifted, or rotted. Not to worry though, the Maine Cabin Masters can turn a teardown into an almost-new deer camp palace in just a few months. We hash out the details of finding and rebuilding a deer cabin with Dixie and Jedi, (aka Matt Dix and Jared Baker of the show Maine Cabin Masters. And of course, we talk about Matt and Jared’s Maine deer hunting adventures.

Show Sponsor: Big Game Hunting Adventures: We have one opening remaining for a hunt in South Africa in November of 2021. The conditions should be fantastic for the hunt of a lifetime then, so contact me for details on how to take advantage of this unique opportunity! Say you heard about Big Game Hunting Adventures through The Big Game Hunting Podcast for special pricing on your hunt!
What We Covered

4) Best bullets for hunting plains game in Africa.

8) Best bullets for hunting lion and leopard in Africa.
We have one opening remaining for a hunt in Africa in 2021 in early November. Believe me when I say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity: hopefully, we’ll never again shut down hunting for a whole year like that. Fortunately, we got a lot of rain over there this past year, so game populations in general and the numbers and quality of trophy bulls in particular swelled past anything we’ve ever seen in the past. THIS is the year to come over if you want a BIG buffalo, wildebeest, waterbuck, impala, or kudu.
Every hunt so far in 2021 has been outstanding and it normally gets better and better until the dry season ends in late November. So, whoever books for early November should have the hunt of a lifetime. We can do plains game, buffalo, or a buffalo/plains game combo hunt in November.
As always, I’m offering a special bonus to podcast listeners who book a hunt with me. Contact me directly for details at john at thebiggamehuntingblog.com or visit bestsafarihunt.com to check out our hunting packages. Somebody’s going to have a great hunt this November and it might as well be you!
