    Hi Tap

    This offer can be booked in 2013 for 2014.

    Should we not be able to export lion in 2014 you will be refunded your deposit in full.

    I have a number of clients who want to do this in 2014 but we would just have to see what the USFW outcome will be?

    This is for a good quality hunt not the bargain of the year but the hunters who book this will defiantly get what they pay for I have done a number of lion hunts on this property and it is truly a hunt not a shoot.

    Hunting plains game on the 160 000 acre reserve is also something really special.

    Thank you for your interest it is appreciated.

    Best Regards
    Louis van Bergen

    Mexico is CITES member. So, technically yes. Might have to get a citizen to do it for you.
    No any little guys running across the Rio Grande who might carry it across for you?

    Most of my employees are from Mexico or have family in Mexico. They aren't worried about helping out. It's not like border patrol is looking for a curio that someone bought in Juarez that isn't attached to drugs.

    What age class lion is the hunt for.I always have been told lions sale by age class is that right.I can never tell looking at picks what makes the big difference from a 20,000 to a 25,000 dollar lion.

    Good job on these hunts Louis. I think that your having a 10,000 acre hunting area will make the hunts for lion behind fence far more palatable to a lot of hunters. Your prices are very good, especially considering it includes the charter flight. People wanting a lion should be looking hard at these hunts.

    Hi Billc

    The lion is sold on the same class as the one in the picture, age does not play as big a role as genes do it would be possible to get a black mane lion with hair running all the way back that is 4 years old, then another 4 year old would have very little mane it is more about the genes than the age.

    In saying this these lions are 6 years old or older, we also release the lion as soon as we have a deposit this leads to the fact that there are more than one lion on the property at any given time. I would say that this adds quite a lot to the quality of the hunt hence it not being a bargain of the year but instead labeled a good quality hunt!

    Thank you Kelly we are trying pretty hard to deliver good value for money on this one!

    Thanks for all this interest thus far.

    Best Regards
    Louis van Bergen

    Well gang this is a great deal, I had such a great time last year on this same hunt I am still grinning, so get yours while it last. I already booked back for this year going for Leopard but bringing a buddy who will be going after the lion and I heading across the street to hunt in the preserve. The quality of animals on that 150,000 acre preserve is just over the top. So I plan on taking home couple more this year. We shot Kudu, Gemsbuck, Elan and red wildebeast at the preserve and everyone has told me our throphies from the picture are over the top. The lion hunt is hard work but rewarding to say the least. I promise ya you will have to walk and stalk so sign up with the best outfitter and owner I hunted with ever.

    here is a link to my video on U tube, as you can tell I had a blast, the 40 minutes on the sticks waiting on the lion to calm down while he was roaring and acting crazy in that ticket was something, to hear but not see was OMG.

    Thanks

    Gents thanks again for all the interest!

    Just on a side note you can add a Cape Buffalo to this hunt for $10 000 and have one heck of a time.
