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

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.

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!

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
