I certainly forgot that there would always be some problems working with affairs and guns... So either than that I know if you have the right outfitter it can be done with no problems at all. Sometimes it could mean a HUGE trophy for you. I got a call this week that a +- 80pound elephant has been seen in a concession area in South Eastern Zimbabwe. If a client could be here in a few days and do not worry about the fees of the hunt he could have shot a BiG elephant.... Also I just had a couple of Australian folks who booked a hunt a week ago and they will be here from the 2nd of July. So it can definitely work for people that would like to do it this way.
SW I am like you and if I want to do something I cannot stand to wait even a month! lol If you need any help in planning the trip don't hesitate to contact me at anytime!
Hope everybody has a fantastic weekend!

I booked a cancellation hunt in RSA this year in mid March and hunted in May so I had two months to prepare. It couldn't have worked out better. I got a good price on the day fees, ended up with reasonable airfare, and had a great time. I'd do it that way again. I should add that I used the ph's spare gun but will not be doing that again unless absolutely necessary.

Not to rain on your parade, because I love your enthusiasm, energy and attitude towards life. Just make sure you have a good taxidermist and shipping agent....and that PH is going to fill out the permits for your hunt....otherwise you will be caught in legal limbo land. Having your outfitter be a member of PHASA or some other professional organization, helps. Check references very carefully. The worst thing you want to happen...if you go hunting, get great pictures and the animals never make it home. There are other problems too....on leopard hunts and other dangerous game hunts. Plains game hunts are a lot easier to plan for in the short term.

If all the stars align a short notice booking can offer an excellent opportunity. I think what some people don't realize is that if they pick up a cancellation hunt for instance they are buying the hunt and dates that worked for the client that cancelled. They are not buying necessarily the best hunt and dates for themselves. If you have the flexibility to come and go as you see fit from your job than you also can do the research and book the best hunt at the best times of year for the species you want. I think this is the best plan and you could also be ready to take advantage of a really good deal if it came along. You are in an enviable position that few people find themselves in.

You should be looking for hunts right now. There is a hunt special out there for a 7 day buff hunt in Zim for $6,500. As you know, there are several Moz specials right now as well. Now is a good time to be a guy with some loose change in his pocket.Tom

Do we need an export permit for our rifles? I'm in SW Ontario and didn't know that. What's involved in getting that? I'm thinking Namibia next year?

Yes, the short answer.
I sent a post earlier but for some reason it did not come through.
I figured Jerome would dump the link on you quickly. Thx
The Canadian government requires an export permit for all firearms, scopes and ammunition except when you are going to the United States (then the USa requires a 6NIA form to be completed for temporary import)
Also, make sure that you have you transit permits in place.
