Antelope for Africa Safaris has donated a ten-day South African Hunting Safari for two hunters to the Wild Game Dinner fundraiser. The hunt will be included in the Game Dinner’s Live Auction on Saturday, October 3, at the Blanco County Show Barn in Johnson City. Past high bidders include Leonard and Sean Pruett, Jack Coker, and Wayne and Deborah Dworaczyk. Leonard took a Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Red Hartebeest, Impala, and a Warthog, while Sean took a Zebra, Impala, Blesbok, and Baboon on their very memorable father-and-son hunting safari in 2007. Jack Coker purchased the 2006 hunt and came home with three Cape buffalo, a Blue Wildebeest, and a Zebra. Wayne, better known as “Dirt,” and Deborah Dworaczyk purchased a seven-day hunt donated to the 2005 Wild Game Dinner. A video presentation of their trip will be on display during the dinner. Don’t miss your chance to bid on this chance of a lifetime hunt.
