    Delta just cancelled June 1 ATL to JNB flight

    Spend some time playing with cost from smaller airports that fly to a domestic international airport first. For instance a Basic Delta flight to Jburg from ATL in August is ~$2300, but if you go from Charlotte to Joburg, the flight cost is $1094. That is the same overseas flight as the...

    Do You Bargain With Your Outfitter?

    I think it all depends on what you are willing to give to the outfitter in terms of shooting. On my last trip, the prices on animals started to go down a little without really asking. If you shoot a good number of animals, and the outfitter is pleased with you, I think comments from them like...

    Has anyone flown Mango Airlines in South Africa in recent weeks as of early March 2021?

    We have an August flight and will use Airlink. We're still waiting on US carriers to make up their minds before making the call though. Im hoping Delta will decide to fly.

    Powder In Stock At Graf & Sons

    I got some Wednesday. It was flying off the shelves. As fast as I could click on one, it was gone. I do like what Grafs is doing by not letting people back order. Hopefully that will slow down the hoarders. Now I just need to find some primers.

    Advice For Ontario Spring Bear Hunt

    I would go with the self guided lodges. The pre bait would be worth it to me for what I was paying. You've got to figure you'll have the cost of baiting and the extra days to do it that closes the distance even more. I killed a toad with a semi guided camp in Savant Lake 6-7 years ago...

    US Travel Bans/Restrictions South Africa

    What about the new United route through Newark? Is that an option? I don't know about flying with guns through Newark. some of the stories are that it is fine, and others are that its a disaster. I have had an August trip planned for 2 years, but haven't bought the flights yet.

    United Airlines Non-Stop Flights

    I have been looking at this route as well. What are the thoughts about flying into Newark when returning? I know New Jersey has some crazy gun laws if you were to have to leave the airport, but getting the guns out of international baggage and rechecking domestic, have issues??

    Buying Flights During COVID

    So as you all know, this year is looking bleak on the hunting front in Africa. I was planning to take the family to the Northern Cape in August, and was days from pulling the trigger on the flights back in early February, but drug my feet and didn't do it. My question is based around the...

    Body Shots On Elephant (Does Caliber Really Matter?)

    I Agree with you. I’ve been working toward planning for elephant as well, and I think it would depend mostly on what your PH preferred and you were comfortable with. Boddington ran some informational videos on YouTube a year or two back. Take it for what it is, but he stated the consensus...

    This was a fantastic account of the hunt. A+. Thank you for posting this. I enjoyed it very much. I know you can’t lay out Mr X’s Name, but I would love to know who the TV hero really is. Would be worth a few giggles.

    Just an update on the shipping. I have had both of my stags and my wife's ram at my taxidermist for around a month now. Everything went very well, other than a little miscommunication on the dates the trophies were shipping. Pricing is very comparable to Africa, Tom at Trophy Shippers took...

    If you are in North Pole Alaska at Santa’s House, you have to go in and see what he is saying about your kids. We thought about leaving a few reindeer hooves in the parking lot, but figured it would give us a bad wrap with the big man.

    Logan has a done a better job of laying out the pre-game than I could have. That means I just get to talk about the fun/after party. I have been blessed to have been pretty successful with my harvests, but the actual animal on one of these excursion type hunts is actually far behind the...

    Tanzania to Auction Hunting Concessions

    Well if that’s true then some areas might be had for less than a 10day Tanzanian 2 buffalo hunt? What stops a “hunting consortium” of AH hunters from leasing it? Does Tanzania require a TZ licensed guide as part of the bid? Obviously there are tons of ways to lose money here, plenty of which...

    Tanzania to Auction Hunting Concessions

    So 26 blocks generate $3.4 million? That is ~$130,000 a block. This seems to be a pretty low number for these concessions. Have these areas been hit that hard by poaching? Are they completely hunted out at this point? It seems like with some investment in the block these could be picked...
