Glad this got posted. Didn’t think about a shortage of chew on a hunt.

For a 12 day trip I took a tub, tubs stay moist longer, and 3 cans to refill as needed, and during the flights.

I use Longhorn Straight long cut.

Generally a tub will last me 8-9 days, with 2 or 3 cans in reserve.

Thus far, In 2 trips, I haven't had a problem getting thru customs/SAPS.

1 tub in check baggage and 1 tub in carrying on and 2-4 cans on you should be good to get you through your 20 day trip. If not please let me know. This is my plan for a 26 day trip and I hope this works.

I first tasted Cope in the 10th grade hallway from a farmer friend.
The moment I put it in my mouth, I was hooked.
I don't know what it is about Cope, but it had me at hello.
It's not sweet, but it tastes good to me.
The fine snuff cut also made it easy to gut.

If @Glenn Slaven is anything like me, long-cut straight ain't gonna do the trick.

Man, this makes me want a dip again. :rolleyes:

If you have stopped dipping, you are my hero. I use to only dip or chew long leave when I (we) couldnt smoke. I totally quit smoking now if I could only quit dipping; which is harder than quitting smoking.

The flavor of fine cut and I have trouble getting it to stay packed between my cheek and gum.

What is a tub, never heard of it.
A tub is "suppose to" equal 12 cans at the price of or less than a ten can roll.

I pack a "tin", I get 9(+) - 10(+) cans per tub, with enough for 1-3 dips left in the tub after refilling "tins".

Took a pinch of Copenhagen once at work, being around a bunch of chewers, nearly gagged out, worst, most foul tasting stuff I ever tasted. Like having salty dirt in your mouth.
I dont see the attraction at all...:sick::sick::sick:

Try the Longhorn/Grizzly/Skoal longcut mint. It’ll keep you from getting intestinal worms too. They used to give horses tobacco to prevent worms. When my granddaughter asks me what’s in the can, I tell her it’s worm medicine.

They don't call it worm dirt for nothing

I was there 10 days took 6 cans and was good . In duty free you may find it but I don’t think it would be an issue taking 20 cans. But if you use more then a can a day “Seek Help” I use a can every 2-3 days and have used Copenhagen 45 years now. But I only spit it out for meals. I wake up to pee and 5 am and spit mine out. I guess I should have never got clipped so I had a place to put it during brushing my teeth

Packed up two logs (5 tins each, which used to be 10 tins) and a few loose tins for a ten day hunt in Namibia.

Served me just just about right. There will be no questions asked on import in my opinion.

Better more than less.

Couple drops of water it it starts to dry out. If you want to go exotic, add a little bit of your favorite booze.

As a former chewer stopping 40 years ago, it was the hardest thing I ever did!

As a Surgical Oncologist I've made a living by cutting out cancers caused by tobacco for 30 years!
This includes lungs, esophagus, tongues, voice boxes, jaw bones and many other body parts!

Based on the number of respondents here on AH, if I continue to practice for a few more years, and
give a significant discount to afflicted AH members (and I would be honored to care for you) and then still retire I could go on Safari everyday for the rest of my life!

and for those who quit, if you put your daily chew money in a piggy bank everyday, you could save a boat load of cash , and perhaps save yourself a horrible & expensive ordeal and you would have enough money to go on a hunt with me!

I personally think both plans are win-win deals!

Just food for thought for a great group of folks here on AH!

My factory used to adjoin a snuff factory, Bute Snuff it was called. Well uou should have seen what went into that stuff, including some gourds of foul fermented soggy mush. They would then semi-dry it on large open heated pans and I have to admit the aroma was gorgeous at that stage. It must have been highly addictive, he retired well.

If you think that’s bad you should see what goes into hot dogs.

Last shutdown I worked almost all the boys chewed. Stuff is expensive in Canada, 30$ a tin. Found a guy that was supplying us for 90$ a log.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
