    Welcome aboard Jonathan. On AH you will find all of the resources necessary to plan your hunt. The goal is not to have any "surprises" and proper planning will be more fun than you can imagine. You already know where to make your travel arrangements. If you will be hunting is South Africa start talking to Henry at http://riflepermits.com/ about assistance in clearing your rifles through SAPS.

    Jonathan,

    Sorry for the delayed response to my earlier post in this thread. I am living in a motorhome and have limited access to the Internet so I have been using the app instead of the website to access AH...and I wasn't able to find which thread I had promised to respond to!

    I did a plains game hunt with Blaauwkrantz Safaris in 2015...full report at https://www.africahunting.com/threa...ris-the-best-kudu-hunting-in-the-world.16423/ my total costs for two kudu, a nyalla, a bushbuck, six days of hunting, and one observer was $10,417 (oh and a rifle rental and 7 bullets!). I had my taxidermy done in South Africa by Paul Smith at Relive Taxidermy (you will find many positive reviews for them on the site) with 2 kudu wall pedestals, 1 nyala wall pedestal, 1 bushbuck shouler mount, and a nyala backskin for a total taxidermy costs of $3085. Add in $1250 for shipping and I had a total cost of $4335 in my home and on the wall in 6 months.

    So I am at 41% of the costs of the hunt for taxidermy...to my house...in six months! Let me know if you need any more info!
