Don't have time to look the information up, but do outfitters have to apply for a honey badger permit months before a client arrives? Are outfitters limited on how many them can take?

In Limpopo not currently yet but with a new draft looming it would probably become nearly impossible to get a permit . I hunted 6 last year . They do limit you to one per property currently and there are talks of limits of one per outfitter per year ....... This while I have 5 on bait in one video devouring my leopard bait ....... Permit needs to be done at least 3 weeks in advance

Happy Hunting !!!

The Honey Badger would make a great trophy. I also would like one. I have seen 1 adult and 2 smaller ones in the bush. However, I did not have a permit for taking one.

If you think you have the option to take one while on safari, check with your PH about obtaining the proper permits prior to going on safari.

I have found it is better to have the paper work in place and not see one, than see one and not have the proper paper work in hand.

On my last PG hunt in South Africa, we saw a Honey Badger on a Caracal bait. My PH wasn't sure if I could shoot it, so I didn't. When we checked with the Outfitter's wife, she said "No way, permits were not available."

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
