    Too bad you have to sell the hunt.

    Do you know for certain it is transferable?

    Please include a price list for the other trophies.
    The web site does not display them.

    Brickburn,

    I confirmed with the guide that this is 100% transferable.


    I just sent you a PM regarding the pricelist.

    Raleigh, what did you pay for this safari at the auction, vs what you are selling it for? If you make a profit are you paying that back to the body you bought the donation from?

    I am asking for one very simple reason, there are many donation safaris available and many are bought for next to nothing, due to the exact number available, a trend has developed with purchased hunt being offered by third parties on sites such as this and even on EBay.

    IMO profiting from such donated hunts are by no means, shape or form in the spirit of the donations system, if you will. Personally an outfitter would be to happy to transfer such safari, as he would still get feet through camp.

    But my main concern is profiting off a 100% donation, from an outfitter, sold by a chapter or foundation to raise funds and then resold on the black market if you will...

    Maybe it is just me but something never seems right to me when that happens.

    While this May or may not be the case here, I just wanted to mention it.......

    My best always

    Hey Jaco,

    I can see how profiting off a donation can easily become a trend. As a member of the organization I would not feel right profiting from a fun charitable event for a good cause.

    All profits made from this hunt will be donated back to the "Delta Water Fowl Association". In fact, I would encourage the buyer to write two separate checks for peace of mind.

    I paid $2k for this trip while the hope was to auction this trip at the event for $4k. The next day this very same trip went for $14k so that made us feel a little better.

    I hope everyone understands I am in no way profiting from this trip. I will gladly show my original receipt to any potential buyers. I just need this off my hands before my other threatens to take me to the taxidermist. :ballchain:

    You have full transparency on my end.
