I'm planning my first trip to South Africa in June. I wanted to see how much snuff I can take with me.

Take as much as you will need! There is non their! I personally had 15 cans last trip I did.
5 in carry on, 5 in checked bag, 5 in gun case.
Never had a question asked on either of my trips in 2018 and 2019.

Not sure on chew, but last trip I had way more cigarettes with me than you are supposed to, no issues at all. Nothing makes for very happy trackers than American cigarettes, filterless Camels were a big hit.

This next trip, I think I am going to do loose leaf and papers.

Thanks guys. I plan on taking 15 or 20 cans with me. I wasn't sure if there was a limit or not

You can ask your PH, but I think you would be far better off with cigarettes for gifts.

Also, not to jump into your thread too much, but I have to tag @gizmo for a hilarious story about giving a guide chew. This is simply too on point to pass it up.

Youre good with taking a log..... take plenty, as they don’t sell it over there!

One of the truly vile, awful, and truly disgusting habits on the planet. :E Sick: Ranks right up there with scalp scab eating. Be sure to bring a bottle along (preferably clear) to collect the spit in so everyone else can admire it. :A Vomit:

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
