    For those of you who have had the opportunity to hunt rhino, how hard was it to get permits and to import it? I assume it is quite the expensive hunt, so was the experience worth the price? How does the hunt compare to the other big 5?

    Not sure if no one on here has hunted rhino or if they have but do not want to say publicly which I completely understand considering the constant attacks by antis. If you would rather message me directly I would appreciate that as I am very curious about this.

    @Saul I have darted a Rhino so I guess that kinda of counts. It was a very rewarding experience and I enjoyed it alot. It wasnt the hardest hunt, but it was a very intense hunt. Getting 14 yards to a Rhino with just a needle is kind of crazy. Being able to put your hands on Rhino is something magical. You can have a replica mount made and not worry about the permits. Definitely a cheaper alternative.

    Are "dart hunts" still available? I've often wondered if after being darted so many times tbe rhinos become a tad addicted to it: and a bit like a junkie looking for their next hit? :LOL:
