Welcome to AH.
Wow, this is from a year ago and I had to stop and think about it for a moment. The original question was about a leopard and elephant hunt. While it did not specifically mention Zimbabwe I assumed it was the country the original poster was considering. For the most part Tanzania and Botswana have priced their selves out of the market, no ivory import in to the US from Moz, very limited ivory import from Zambia. With Chifuti being mentioned, it is a licensed Zimbabwe company.
To hunt Zimbabwe you must be a Zimbabwe licensed PH. That I know of Bullet Safaris is not a licensed operator in Zimbabwe with its own concession and quota. In my view of the world if you are sending clients to Zim you are working with a licensed Zim PH and licensed Zim company. I have always consistently stated if you hunt in Zimbabwe booked with a Zimbabwe outfitter, if not, you are using a booking agent.
If I have somehow overlooked your Zim license and concession my sincerest apologies.

Welcome Nathan good to find you on here especially after an Epic dinner in Reno.... I understand where you are coming from, there are professional hunters in every African country I know that you are fully aware of the fact that when hunting Zim you need a licensed Zim Professional I have also in the past received offers from Zim (reputable) outfitters to bring my clients over, and I am fully aware of the fact that Zim outfitters release quota to non Zim outfitters.
As you I also have a problem with suddenly being named a booking agent instead of a fully operational Professional when venturing into Zim, after all they are NOT the only professional hunters on the continent, I believe professional courtesy can go a long way, and personally do not see anything wrong with following regulation, I for one as you have been very fortunate in this aspect as we have been involved with our clients safari in Zim this can be contributed to the professional courtesy granted to us by Zim ph's. Whilst still following regulation and Law.
The origin of this is clear for all to see due to some rotten apples operating under false pretenses (illegally) which has damaged all of our reputations almost irreparably, as always I always say that everyone can not be tarred with the same brush.
One fact remains there is a right and a wrong way to do things, you are a professional in every sense of the word, as is Martin Pieters, and many other well respected individuals no matter where you might take your clients.... Just my opinion, if you have a client wanting to go to Zim, Tanzania, Mozie or SA if you have the resources and the know how.... Why not.
Keep well and I hope you have a roaring season...
My best always.
