Good question ActionBob, but I'm guessing A LOT!

Am I missing something or is this a really low price? I know it's under a fence and that can raise some serious concerns for a lot of hunters including myself. Specifically when it comes to lion. How do other members feel about this? And has anyone done this type of hunt for lion?

This outfitter has been in business many years. He has excellent prices, I would not hesitate to hunt with him. What you see is what you get...an honest outfitter

How do you feel about hunting lion under a fence? At that price and from what he shows from the picture ( nice lion) this hunt warrants serious consideration.

Well, I think hunting lion with a high fence is appropriate for that cost. A free range would cost significantly more! And yes there are more expensive lion hunts out there. Is it worth the money? Very subjective question, I think for this price, I would go and give it a try. You can hunt on foot.

I have a certain number in my head, if the price is right and time frame works for me it is to do hunt. At this price, you have to compare all other lion hunts to that price. Johan says the lions are roaming around on the property before hand. From watching over the years, this hunt is one of the most affordable lion hunts in RSA. If you want to look at other hunts, great...but ask the question is worth the extra money. This is an honest outfitter.

And remember we are in the final days of lion hunting, the window is closing to USA hunters at least.

Good points. I certainly can't afford the 40 -60k I ve seen for these hunts. I am hoping will will continue to be able to import lions or at least lions killed under a fence. I was planning to to this hunt in a few years.

I'm not sure I can do the lion hunt yet, we will see. Time and money are always concerns.(n) I'm still kicking the idea around.

Time and money....Ah yes!....I don't think I'll be able to think about this hunt for several years, as I have a leopard hunt booked next year and then a plains game hunt booked for 2017....If my wife don't kill me and we are still allowed to bring lion into the country I am going to give it a try then. Johan did e mail me and was very honest about the hunt and the fact the lion's taken in SA are pen raised, but once released into the wild for a given time their natural instincts kick in and will surely kill you. Guess I can live with that...lol.

I don't have room for a mount. I was considering doing a rug mount, if the cost was right.

This looks like a great hunt for the price compared to what I have been looking at.

If I understand correctly the lion has only been on this property for 6 months does this mean it was raised and then released onto the property? If this is so I am sorry this is not fair chase hunting . A lion or a pride of lion on 5000 acres would not survive for long before the plains game species that they prey on would be unable to sustain the lions need for prey species . It stands to reason that 5000acres cannot sustain lion in their natural habitat.if my assumptions are correct it is no wonder that the anti hunters are winning the battle against fair chase hunting.

Just so you know anti's don't like any hunting at all. That maybe big news to you but a fact. Why we lose to them is because of post like yours that judge other hunters by how or what they hunt. If you don't like it don't do it but don't tell me I am wrong for doing something that is legal to do.

Johnny I hunted my lioness behind a 22,000 acre fenced area. Frankly that's a big place! I wouldn't want to walk across it every day. Once I drove through the gate I never saw another fence.
That cat was indeed raised for hunting purposes. As pointed out a free range lion of the size pictured would be higher that $60,000 if you could get a permit. At the end f the day you are still spotting and stalking an animal that could and will kill you if given a chance. My cat tried to hunt me and would have gotten someone in the party had we not seen her move as we walked by her less than 15 yards away. She was in strike mode. It definitely got my blood pumping.

CA...really contemplating a lion hunt for 2107 before my buff hunt. If Pieter from Paw print can find something in the 17k max ( good maned ) and if we can still import I am thinking hard on this. If not I am thinking Buffalo with him or possibly Spear safaris.

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).
