There’s a new video series out that explores hunting in remote locations. It’s a wild look at just how adventurous and exciting it can be to branch outside of regular hunting spots. The show is called WILDCraft, and offers a look at hunting in the mountains of South Africa.
Famed gunmaker Mossberg sponsors the show, which is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video for its first season. This gun company has a hundred-year-old history of making exceptional firearms of all different types. It probably goes without saying that the shotguns and hunting rifles used on WILDCraft will be Mossberg made. Let’s look at some additional details about this new and exciting series which will make you feel like you are hunting in some exotic locations.
The first season consists of four episodes that explore hunting in the great plains of South Africa. The cast includes a variety of sharp shooters with unique game hunting experience. Wildlife writer Richard Mann, and Geoffrey Wayland who is a professional hunter, host the show. Each episode they have different people from the hunting and shooting world come and join them for the fun in the Northern Cape of the South African mountains. Some of those people include, Joe Arterburn, a writer for Outdoor Life Magazine, and Alfredo Rico, who is writer and photographer from California.
They hunt during the day, and at night sit around a campfire at their remote tent site to chat about the day’s events, what they nabbed, and the wonder of it all being that far from home. Some of the animals they are hunting include warthogs, the spiral horned Kudu antelope, and the Blesbok antelope.
Fort Richmond Safaris is the outfitter that is helping the gang go on these types of free-range hunts in unfamiliar territory. One of the guns they use on the hunt is the Mossberg Patriot, a bolt-action rifle that is known for its accuracy, affordability, and ease of use. It has a patented Lightening Bolt Action (LBA) for a trigger system that is user adjustable. Overall it’s just a terrific model to use all around for any type of hunting.
In the second episode, the men also visit a taxidermist in South Africa to explore the different kinds of animals this famous shop can make for hunters to take home after their adventures.
The show isn’t just about the sport of hunting though. The series also talks about how hunting tourism affects each region that the show visits in a positive way. If you are ever in the market to go on a safari hunt in South Africa, WILDCraft show will give you a realistic look at what it takes and how enjoyable, but challenging, an experience it truly is for the hunter.
Get outside of your backyard and into the wild for a journey you’ll never forget. Or at least watch WILDCraft from the comfort of your own living room.
