Purchase a Bigfoot hunting kit. It does not come with a gun but, I would suggest getting another $500 and purchasing a Marlin 45-70 "Scout" to add to the kit.
1. Fun for the family (hunting together, being in nature together).
2. You get a thermal camera (do I need to say more)? The only thing better than a thermal camera would be a camera that you can look at women with (or a man- ladies)... That show them without cloths!
3. You can spend more money on a very nice gun that is good for hunting in South Africa?
4. If you get a Bigfoot, you will be forever famous! Not like reality TV famous, but like Bear Grills famous!
