Lifetime titanium benefactor
As someone who both provides hunts as an outfitter and books hunts as a hunter (sees both sides of the industry), I would advise you all to ask your outfitters before booking (especially when booking well in advance) as to how long the lease where you are hunting is in effect and if it expires before or after your hunt. Seems it is quite common in Africa for outfitters to accept bookings well in advance even when their leases don’t extend that far. That’s probably acceptable if they let you know something could change and have a fair refund policy. If they persuade you to hunt another ranch or concession, that’s fine but you should know where you are hunting before your trip.
Something to add to the BETTER QUESTIONS thread.
