This is after all AH, the thread was about "shot opportunity" so lets rather get back to the topic and not be like the other site where bashing people is the norm.
Here's my take on all of this: AfricaHunting.com encourages (through advertisement) thinking that leads to all sorts of problems like this. .............. .
@rookhawk not everybody can afford the luxury of a "PH marriage"Jumping from PH to PH without good cause from trip to trip is nothing more than "safari adultery"
24 beers before lunch.
Is that a challenge, or a recollection of the facts? Lol.
I hope these guys weren't loaded all day? I once had a sip of beer between shots on a sundown sand grouse shoot and felt like I had just committed a cardinal sin. 24 beers...that'd make any man invincible!
Good point, it may simply be a matter of language which can easily be clarified. I know a lot of the outfitters and PH's in Africa are working in 2-4 languages which may not be their native tongue and translations have been problematic since the Tower of Babel.Certainly the contract language as originally presented by Brickburn would need to be clarified. I think this issue is more of a concern when the Client (hunter) and the Outfitter/ PH don't know each other. Both parties are entitled to their own realistic expectations. These need to be fully discussed and understood by both parties PRIOR to the hunt. From my limited experience it seems that Outfitters/PHs will bend over backwards to satisfy a client. Repeat business and or recommendations is the name of the game. Neither will happen if a client feels that "he" has been cheated.
