Current events, will they hurt Hunting this Year?
Man there is just a bunch of crap going on everywhere! genocide in Libya, Egypt and other countries in that area are in turmoil. 2 wars still going on. Today 4 Americans killed on there Yacht off Somalia. The stock market here is starting to drop and gas prices are rising. There are protests and division like I have never seen in the U.S.
The TV is just filled with violence at every moment, and as a country we are falling deeper in dept every minute, and I don't feel we have a leader to make people feel comfortable and safe. Usually these times will get people to stay home cancel trips and tighten the belt.
Every time I talk to someone about going to Africa that has never been, they have a ton of questions about safety and security. Most in all honesty would not even consider a trip to Africa right now. I know that Egypt is a long way from South Africa, But RSA and Zimbabwe has its problems also, and does not really get good press here either.Have any of you outfitters or PH's started to get any questions from potential travelers?
On another note: My heart and prayers go out to the people who are suffering from the earthquake in New Zealand, which would be much bigger news right now if not for all the other events going on.
