Hello all, I'm new to the forum and to hunting outside of the normal deer population in Massachusetts. I was wondering about Africa and the amazing hunting safari's a few friends have talked about going on in the next 5 years or so. I'm a hunt for food kind of person, and love eating "exotic" things. so naturally, the thought has come across my mind. an 800 lb Eland or a several thousand pound giraffe or even just a couple hundred pound impala, does the hunter get to keep a majority of the meat they procure? I'd love to spend a little extra to have most of the animal brought back, thinking of all of my chest freezers being full of African Game meat. But I've also heard people are forced to give most of the meat to the communities, (not that I have a problem doing so, just looking for information) or giving it to the camp or whatnot. any help would be greatly appreciated!
