    Hello Rocco
    By law the lions only need to be free ranging for 4 days in Northwest Province to make sure they are not drugged. Because we are members of both PHASA (Professional Hunters Association of South Africa) and SAPA (South African Predator's Association) these two organizations decided on a release period of minimum 30 days or longer. We abide by these rules so all the lions we hunt are free roaming for at least 30 days.
    These lions start catching game on day 3 or day 4 after their release. I have seen it time and again.
    So contrary to what the greenies say these captive bred lions can be rehabilitated into the wild and they do have a conservation value.
    The amount of lions on the concession depends on the safari bookings for the following two months.
    Sometimes we have 2 to 3 males with about the same number of lionesses on the concession at the same time.
    Sincerely
    Hans de Klerk

    We have received many questions regarding the lion bones so let me post it here so everybody can see it.
    We have already discounted the prices of these lion hunts because we hope to sell the lion bones to the exporters. That is why our lion packages are such a good deal.
    So far this year (2018) nobody in South Africa was able to sell or export a single lion bone because of legal battles from the greenies who try to stop it. The South African government has therefore not issued a single permit to sell or export any lion bones. So we are taking all the risk on us by already giving the discount through to our hunting clients with the hope of getting the bones exported later which is proving to be very difficult. CITES have allocated a quota of only 1500 sets of bones to be exported and that quota will expire by December 31, 2018 and cannot be used in 2019. As it looks now our time is running out and we might lose the quota for 2018.
    Last year's quota was only 800 and it was completely inadequate as there was many more applications than the quota allowed for.
    Clients normally export the skull and skin of a lion.
    The skull is not really needed for a full mount so if a client is willing to leave his skull behind we can offer the client a further $350 discount for his skull. That is 50% of what I get for the skull. I am however taking the risk that I may not be able to get the skull exported and it also comes with a truckload of paperwork to the government as well as DNA samples of every lion.
    Just thought to clear up the matter as many guys were asking about it.
    Sincerely
    Hans de Klerk

    One of my best memories, is my first morning in Africa waking up to lions roaring in the background at your place. I remember it like yesterday! Hopefully some AH members will do this hunt so I can live vicariously through them.

    Thank you sir. We've had a great season so far and still busy with safaris right now.
    Grateful for that.
    If you are from USA, France or Australia you cannot import any part of the lion as a trophy.
    Such a pity because stopping the importation does not accomplish anything.
    The clients from these countries still hunt lion for the experience of it and take good photos as trophies.
    It is also much cheaper that way as you save on taxidermy fees and shipping fees and you do not have to beg your wife for a spot in the house for your full mounted lion :)

    Sincerely
    Hans
