    Bob it is a great price, and yes a chance at a 50lb is realistic, but I rather work on 40lbs there about. I will probably have 6 available for 2014 all depends on what happens before the show. Regards Wayne

    Hi Jeff, sorry for the late reply, I have just come into town for our annual quota setting AGM , anyway I am currently still on a hunt , just took another Elephant on the 3rd day of a 14 day hunt , so have time to do other things, my client is looking for another Bull which is non exportable so I will most likely be out of town for the rest of the month and back in the office mid September as I have 3 guys coming in to hunt Elephant on the 15th August and straight after that I have a Leopard hunt. My Elephant hunts are conducted in Rural council land Umgusa and Kusile which is adjacent to Forestry blocks Umgusa and Ngamo Forestry. I am situated basically 180km from Bulawayo towards Vic Falls. I have 3 camps ( all personally built ) to operate from depending where most of the Elephant movement may be.

    Wayne,

    Hi. I'm not a hunter but am interested in the products you offer. I get into 'discussions' with anti hunter types and would like a little more first hand info to back up the case for this type of hunting. Could you help me out with a few questions I have?

    I presume the trophy fee is paid to the government. Is that the local community? If in part, how much would the locals receive? I presume the local community gets the meat. I don't know how much meat would be on the average elephant. But could you tell me the weight and value (roughly) the meat would have for the locals? Also I expect local people do get some employment from accommodation of the hunters and maybe working in the field too. Would you know about how much they would benefit?

    Other benefits locals would get I figure must include safety for themselves, their crops, fences etc. Hard to put a value on. Can you think of any other benefits for the local people?

    My interest is partly selfish. I'm a farmer with cattle and I know that animal rights types will come after us more if they ever get done with you. So I see us as allies of sorts. We can't sit back hoping the crocodile will eat us last so every thing's OK.

    Thank you for your time and any info you can pass along.

    Whoops, I just noticed I wrote my name as Normal. Should be Norman. Too late now I guess.

    This would be better posted as a thread rather than on advertisement.

    I can help a little bit though but definitely recommend moving these questions to a thread. The trophy fee is in fact paid to the government, but I don't know how much goes to the local communities. The locals do indeed get the meat and an elephant can weigh 7 tons. Although a lot of it is bones etc it is still a lot of meat. It takes a small village to butcher an Elephant. The local people do get a lot of employment from hunters, in many villages besides cattle it is the only source of income and in many areas you are required to employ the local villagers. They are paid salaries plus tips and are easily making more money than any others in some villages. The main benefit to the villages is the meat as they are not allowed to hunt the animals (although many poach) and it brings in a lot of money. The trophy fee also goes towards conservations and is used to stop poachers, maintain national parks, monitor animal populations, etc.

    April 3, 2014 was the last day an American could shoot a Zimbabwe elephant and be able to import the ivory. I was fortunate that mine was shot the end of March. I still won't feel comfortable until everything is in my home.

    Hope USFW changes their mind soon. I'm not holding my breath.

    I believe Namibia and RSA are the only places that an American can import ivory from now.

    Hope this helps.
