My buddy from work went shot a boar, kudu, zebra and a gensbuck (sp).  I dont think he spent over 5G even with the taxidermy.  I realy dont crave to go, for some reason.  He said you could shoot baboons $50 a pop.  That might be fun.

Have never had the desire myself.  I do have a friend that is planning one this coming year.  He is spending 12K on his 8 day trip.

I am with you guys. I just have never had the desire to go to Africa. I love everything about hunting but I just never had the temptation to go. Don't have the money anyway but if I did I would go somewhere in the midwest or Canada after monster buck. For some reason I don't even like watching the africa hunts on TV.
Hunting, I am not obsessed I am possessed.
