It is true that a lot of outfitters list their Leopard trophy fee as P.O.R. however some do publish the trophy fee on their website's price list. The price range would have to be determined by country between all outfitters offering Leopard, a task that I have not undertaken... I have seen Leopard trophy fees as low as US$2,500, however the trophy fee is not what determines the cost of the entire hunt, one needs to include, if applicable, other expenses such as daily rates, number of hunting days (usually a minimum is set by the outfitter), trophy fees of other species, Leopard quota tags or special permit charges, concession fees, charter flight, pre-baiting, baiting during hunt, hounds' team, dip/pack, trophy shipment. The success rate for Leopard hunting should also be carefully considered when choosing an outfitter. I would say that the beginning price point for a Leopard hunt with a reputable outfitter who is knowledgeable and experienced in conducting Leopard hunts with a good success rate and in a good area for Leopard would be around US$13,000, all inclusive except for airfare, dip/pack, taxidermy, trophy shipment. To answer your question I am in Southern California!

BTW, Philippe is French, yes? Are you American born or did you come over at some point?
Helluva gusty Tom ,taken well with 4 shots , tremendous footage & lucky hunters . Were the 12 gauge buck shots (LGs or SGs) used on him ???
Monish, A Namibian PH sent me this video, I do not have any information pertaining to this hunt!
Wow! Thanks for putting this video up Jerome. It seems that everyone in the vehicle lucked out that the leopard didn't like the feel of the vehicle or something. Imagine trying to deal with one of those inside a vehicle.
bwanawannabe, Here is for a Leopard half way in the cabin of the truck!
That has to be that rangers worst day of work ever. It looked like the cats weight maybe pulled down the window further and prevented him from rolling it back up.
