I hope your hunt went great! Lots of good advice here.
""Concession" became a dirty word for me."
All this talk of "concessions" in South Africa is very strange. You are not hunting on "concessions" you are hunting on Farms and Ranches. With a very few exceptions this is hunting on private land. I have no problem at all with this but it is what it is.
I often refer to large tracts of land where hunting rights are leased by a Safari Company as a "concession" but, I never meant to offend you with it.
In my own defense to the charge of using what amounts to a "dirty word" as you put it, El Dictionario shows many definitions for "Concession, and among them are:
"Lease of a property for a specific purpose, usually to turn a profit."
"The right to do business on property belonging to a Government or belonging to a private person/s."
If that's still a little foggy for ya, take a minute and have a look at the web site:
Perhaps all this talk of South African hunting concessions is not so strange after all.
All my best,
