Hunt Offered to benefit Pathways Residence South Africa
When life throws curve balls at us (as it does from time-to-time) we tend to focus on our own sorrows and forget about all the positive things we have to be thankful for.
Well, on a personal level, I've experienced my share of "bad luck" this year but at the same time the blessings I received by far outweighed any negative experiences I may have had and Jerome's post about Johnny Vivier and Pathways Residence made me think about this.
I've already pledged 20% of the Daily rates from the next hunt I book through AH towards the Pathways Residence project. Here is a Plains Game offer to go along with that pledge:
One Hunter pays - Observer or second Hunter stays / hunts for Free
20% of the Daily rates for the paying hunter will go directly towards the Pathways fund
Here are the details:
- Arrival Day - $150
- 7 Hunting days @ $450p/d - $3,300
- Tax - $462
- Total - $3,762
So for $3,762, one hunter hunting 1X1 can bring one observer along for free or two hunters can come and hunt for 7 days on a 2X1 basis. Of the total Daily Rates payable, $660 will go directly to the Pathways Residence fund. Should one Hunter and Observer book this hunt, the saving between the two of them will be $1,767 plus they will be contributing to a very worthwhile cause. If two hunters book this hunt the saving between the two of them will be $2,166 off regular 2X1 rates.
The hunt will be conducted here from our ranch in Limpopo Province where we hunt directly from camp on 10,000 acres of land and depending on the species selected to hunt also on other ranches nearby. We do not hunt any small areas.
The deposit required to book this hunt will be $660 - which will be paid directly into the Pathways fund so as to get the money to the project as quickly as possible. The balance of the hunt costs will be payable 30 days prior to the start date of the hunt.
Species available on this hunt are:
Species Trophy Fee (US$)
Blesbok (Common) 400
Blesbok (White) 550
Duiker (Grey) 350
Eland (Cape) 2200
Eland (Livingstone) 3000
Gemsbok (Oryx) 1400
Grysbok (Sharpes) 3500
Hartebeest (Red) 1400
Honey Badger (permit permitting) 500
Hyena (Brown) 1500
Impala (Southern) 350
Jackal (Black-Backed) 100
Reedbuck (Common) 1000
Reedbuck (Mountain) 1000
Wildebeest (Blue) 1000
Zebra (Burchell's) 1400
I hope someone will take me up on this offer and help us to contribute to this worthwhile cause.
