    Negative Head Line this Morning - Hunter Photo

    I agree with you but personally I also found the picture in question tasteless, but hey who am I to judge!

    Hunting with ankle problems - Help picking outfitter

    No matter which outfitter you pick, talk to them in advance about your physical limitations. Most will bend over backwards to ensure you are able to hunt comfortably. Everyone on this forum will give you a recommendation for their favourite outfitter, I hunted plains game in S.A. this past April...

    Any Surprises While On Safari In Africa?

    The only surprise I got was a 6-7' cobra that came between me and my downed Wildebeast, lol! Next time I'm bringing snake chaps!

    Bringing wife on safari...On the fence

    My wife went with me this past April and really enjoyed it. So much that she's looking forward to going back. She hunted for two days and that was enough for her. The staff at Umdende did an awesome job lining up excursions for her after that. Talk to your outfitter and see what he offers for...

    Not keeping trophies on first plains game hunt?

    My VAT was included I was under the impression that extra was charged if you did not export your trophies.

    Not keeping trophies on first plains game hunt?

    That is something I've been told. If true then 14% of a $1000 trophy fee would in most cases cover the cost of a skull bleach, or very close to it. Personally if I'm dumping that kind of money I might as well throw in the difference and keep the horns. I don't believe this applies to cull...

    Not keeping trophies on first plains game hunt?

    Correct me if I'm wrong but do you not get charged the 14% VAT in South Africa for any trophies that are left behind?

    My next trip to Africa I will probably do less as well, but for a first trip I felt the need to export some stuff!

    Check out Highveld Taxidermy or Universal, both quoted me prices under $300 per skull. I'm having a Blesbuck shoulder mounted for $598 and a Gemsbuck for about $200 more!

    Where in Africa are you hunting? I just completed my first safari in SA and have quotes for 2 shoulder mounts, some European mounts in shields and some tanned hides for around the price you were quoted for your skulls.

    FB News feed and Passing of Theunis Botha

    I don't think you'll ever change the minds of the zealots no matter how much positive information you put out there. I have a hard time controlling my typing finger when I read the nasty, evil filth that spews from some of these people. You either have to make a conscious decision to ignore the...

    More problems with the Germans and held three hours for not having proper permit

    We just came back from SA and flew through Munich. Bags were checked right through from Winnipeg and there was no problem with rifles or ammo, until Canada customs on the way home.
