I don't think we'll have a full grasp on what pricing will do until show season this winter. Yes, some have already advertised for next year (2018). And in researching the pricing between 2017 vs. 2018, there has been an increase, but not much in the grand scheme. If I had the money & time, I'd be booking a trip to hunt with Nixon & Simon in Gonarezhou. A true chance at an 70 lb. - 80lb. bull for all in under $40k.....You can't beat that with a hedge post!!!! As an aside, last August on the way back from RSA I sat next to a gentleman who had been buff hunting with Nixon & Simon in Gonarezhou. He saw the replicas of the 120+ pounder taken in 2015; said they would blow your mind when seen in person.
