Some basic questions from someone with, I hope, elephant in my future.

1) Is this a malaria area or tsetse fly area?
2) When you say "Victoria Airport", do you mean Victoria Falls Airport, the one that Wikipedia says is 18 km south of Victoria Falls?
3) How long is the drive from the airport to the hunting area?
4) How strenuous is a hunt like this?
5) What is the likelihood of a shot opportunity?
Hi postoak
There is malaria certain times but fairly uncommon. No tsetse fly
Yes Victoria falls airport. Yes 18 km away.
The hunting area is close to airport ten mins. The camp is about one hour drive.
The hunt will be tracking on flat ground for possibly two or three hours at our own pace.
Very good chance we will shoot a bull on the first or second day.

Lin Stanton.

Sounds like you both need to get your deposits sent in and both of you as well as Lin and his crew will all be happy;) You just may want to take some candy with you though... Might be tougher to get in Zimbabwe than elephants :rolleyes:

Just a question, what makes it non trophy?
Is it non exportable? Or is there a size limit?

Hi Jumbo
There is a size limit under 30 pounds. We get a quota every year for non export bulls. They called conservation ele. The meat belongs to people.

Unfortunately this is out of reach for me at the moment, but I would still like to ask the definition of "non-export". Does that mean that nothing whatsoever can be taken as a trophy (apart from photos/memories)?

The tail, an ear, a piece of skin for leather?

Yes that’s correct nothing whatsoever can be exported.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
