Hopefully Ockert grilled up some backstraps from that Springbok, the man has a talent for that! He did that for us last year when we were there, the boy and I ate that till we were darn near sick.

I can't really remember as I was served such a variety of bush meat, but that boy sure can eat his lamb chops!

Congrats on a great trip.

BTW, James at the Shooting Edge in Calgary can get you a Canadian Export permit in about 2 weeks.

Thanks for the info! The primary issue was getting the pre-approved permits for South Africa....Hunters Support Air 2000 needs all the paperwork 30 days in advance. It was the best $150 I ever spent! On my last hunt, Hunters Support met me on the ramp of the airplane, we jumped all the customs queues, got my firearms permits and I was out of the airport in Jo'Burg within 1/2 hour. I guess it depends how busy they are in Ottawa, but the last time my Canadian export permit was issued within 2 days online.:)

2 days? Early this year I was told to plan on 6 weeks! Thats why I used James. I got it within 2 weeks. I agree that Ann and her crew from Air 2000 Hunter's support are worth their money. We also used a car/driver that they hired to take us around Joburg rather than sit in the airport for 11 hours. He was excellent!

You're right, it says up to 6 weeks on the website, however I worked with Serge Laurier from the export/import office and phoned him directly. He walked me through the process and in 2 days I had my permits. Fortunately it was also Serge that approved my application. The driver that Ann supplied me was Fred and he was also great!

I have had anywhere from 2-10 days, never 6 weeks. fill all out correctly and provide all required documentation and u will be fine. probably 3-4 days.

Hey Gizmo, 2 dangerous game species in one hunt sounds like it will be a fantastic hunt to look forward to!
