Lion Hunt in South Africa
There are not many free ranging Lion hunting opportunities available in South Africa - this we all know.
But... occasionally Lions do escape fom the Park and permits are issued to hunt them. These are not "raised" Lions# In other words - they don't have na#es - nor can you pick one from a catalogue### So the downside is that whoever decides to have a go at hunting them will not know how old the Lion is or how big the mane is before he/she has actually seen it###
With this being said - a Lion has become available for hunting in near Hoedspruit next to Kruger National Park# Based on the tracks that we've found it appears to be a mature male but other than that I'm afraid I have no more info in terms of size or age# I can get a permit to hunt this Lion and this could potentially be your chance to hunt a wild Lion in South Africa# The caveat is that, even though the trophy will be legally exportable - technically speaking this is a problem Lion - hence the reason for having a permit issued to have it hunted# This implies that the hunt needs to take place ASAP #as in YESTERDAY## There is no guarantee that the Lions will stay in the area that the permit has been issued for and for this reason it is important that we start baiting immediately and whoever does decide to take me up on this offer must be able to get away on short notice#
Free Range Lion hunts are expensive - that we all know# Typically you'd be looking at a 14 - 21 day hunt #depending on country# at anything from $1,300p/d upwards + a trophy fee of several thousands of Dollars - in the event of the hunt being successful#
Well, I'm going to stick my neck out on this one and offer this hunt at reduced Daily Rates and a higher Trophy Fee# #This would reduce the risk to the client #should the hunt not be successful# and serve as motivation for me to ensure a successful outcome to the hunt# Does this sound fair?
This is the offer for one client hunting 1X1:
7 Days @ $850p/d = $5,950
Tax on Daily Rates - $833
Total Daily Rates = $6,783
Permit Fee - $1,000
Lion Trophy Fee - $25,000
Total cost of hunt - $32,783
Arrival day + transfer to hunting area from OR Tambo Airport #JNB# or Eastgate Airport - Hoedspruit
7 Hunting days incl:
Accommodations, meals and beverages
Daily laundry service
Services of PH, Trackers, Skinners and Camp Staff
Field preparation of trophy
Transfer back to Airport on Departure day
For more info please contact me.

Nice offer and as we know the lion could return into the park, however probably not anytime soon. This could be a great opportunity for some one.
To bad another park in South Africa decided to kill off 45 of their 100 lions this year. Entire prides were killed to reduce the number of lions in the park. I guess the birth control the tree huggers are advancing was not working. Park name slips my mind rite now.
So i take it South Africa will use professionals to kill game not wanted in the parks. The stage has been set and in the near future there will be more of this culling in national parks by professionals rather than let hunters pay to have the opportunity to have a try and controlling animal populations.James Grage - New Mexico

Great offer Chris.
I hope someone form AH can jump on this.
Moving the cost of the hunt onto success really looks after the hunters interest.
There is no doubt about what the outfitter is working for: The hunter is successful the outfitter gets the reward.
Wild Lions are not a gimme!
Good luck with this offer.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!
