    Is a permit required for your bow when you enter Zimbabwe?
    If so how much?

    As far as my knowledge goes... not required to take it into the country but you do need a special bow permit issued to hunt if I am not mistaken, maybe try discussing it with your Zim outfitter they would be able to give you a solid.

    Sorry that I could not be of more help.

    My best always.

    Wow if what I heard $30 levy each way is true, it's cheaper to hunt with a rifle.

    I felt for the outfitters that had to suck up the mid season taxes increases on trophies.
    Thousands of dollars in many cases.

    NO planning or notice, just an announcement.

    A true cash grab.

    True we went through something similar in Moz, a rifle import card is $300 now, and many of the" tag fees" were almost doubled....

    Cash grabbing indeed......, and yet there are individuals out there thinking that outfitters are jumping on the Bots and Zambia situation... which honestly is not the case.... O.... the joys of Africa... (note I am not complaining simply stating... :) :_ :* :) )

    My best always.

    No you don't to the best of my knowledge. I have a copy of the proposed tariffs for National Parks Estates for 2014.
    A plains game bow hunt permit is being levied at US$100 and a dangerous game bow permit at US$1500 for 2014.

    Good, if its only National parks.
    I guess you had better want to bow hunt dangerous game with your bow pretty badly.

    Thanks for clarifying.
