    Wow that is a great deal. I really wish I could take you up on the offer now, but like CAustin, I am looking more at a 2016 date (2015 if possible). I hope you have more elephant hunts scheduled in the future for this price.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but approximately how long and thick would 40 pound tusks be?

    And when hunting this beast, what happens if it is 42 pounds after the fact? Or 45, etc.?

    CAustin, this will be a once off offer. With the closure and restriction of hunting and CITES more apparent, I predict the prices of Elephant hunting to increase. We will only receive confirmation of prices and quota for 2015 by late 2014

    ActionBob this is the PH's call on many "parks" areas we often have to operate according to SANPARKS protocol and on many of these areas there is a limit on size, set by parks.
    For example Mtimkulu and Letaba ranch use to have a 70lbs per side max, other "reserves" such as Balule had different limits.

    To be frank (while I am still Jaco :) ) the call lies with the professional hunter and is for him to sort should a dispute arise after the fact.

    If there is the possibility of repercussions to a hunting client he/she should and will be informed of this prior to finalizing the relevant hunting contract.

    On certain areas (and I am not referring to Alex's post) 40lbs a side could be the most probable size and hence it is marketed as such.

    With all this been said, great offer Alex and your summary of the situation with regards to Elle and Elle pricing is spot on.

    I hope that this clears it up slightly.

    My best always
