Bill, The hunting industry is extremely competitive especially in South Africa there are over 10 000 PH's in this country but only about 2500-3000 Outfitters roughly and then to top it all between 4500-6000 intl clients per year to be split by all. Now more than 70% of these PH's and Outfitters don't depend on their hunting profit to earn a living that is the issue where some can charge way below normal average rates as he only wants to keep his PH and Outfitter permit running. You need to book ceratin amount of days in order to keep registered. Some areas are much cheaper on their native game than others so you can't just compare the pricelist but you should actually break it up in regions as well. In the end go with someone you feel comofortable with as well as their rates its your hard earned money so spend it well.
