    My guess: attempting to pump out PH's like they are Lollipop's.

    I thought they were transforming Mesomorphs.

    Couple of things guys. For instance being aproved for the PH course but never handled a rifle before... The list is long.

    Yes it is pumping out PH's everywhere, but its always been like that. And the price of the course is ridiculous.

    Just my two cents. Still a great effort, well done.

    Hey, my guess was pretty good about the Lollipops.

    Does PH'ing alone provide a good living, or is the money in being an outfitter?

    1. Botswana I made some money as a PH, but not a work if you want a family...
    2. Mozambique you can still do, but yet again long periods away from you family...
    3. RSA, no. Because we are to many...I also will not appoint a non experience PH because I cannot take the change with him with clientele. You even get them today as qualified PH's but they never had any formal rifle / weapon training... now, think again you cannot send such a PH out with clientele...this then becomes a liability and not an asset you your Outfitting company. I however can employ him as an appi to train him but yet again some of these guy's doesn't want to work at all...so the best today is to do the PH course, and if you father has a ranch; registered as an Outfitter to make money...and sometimes / most of the times this is not the case...they underquote on packages and leave the outfitting business in a year or two when started...just my 2cents!
