SirI used to be paid 4000 Rupees for a standard package Shikar ( two species ) , 3000 rupees for a budget package Shikar ( one species ) , 5000 for a mega package Shikar ( three species ) and 6000 for a deluxe package Shikar ( four species ) . Trackers would typically be paid 500 Rupees Coolies were paid 200 Rupees.
So in US-Dollars:
80 Dollar for two species

160 Dollar for four species

Mark HunterLooking at the map, location of Darjeeling, i see Bhutan and Nepal are close by.
Question, for Buthan and Nepal: was there then, and is there now any legal hunting?
In my life , l have supervised two Shikars using macchans on top of elephants. One went uneventfully . The other almost resulted in a leopard reaching our client ( l had arrogantly assumed that leopards cannot spring up elephant macchans in real life ). What a horrible day to be proven wrong
KurpfalzjagerVery dangerous animal.
Luckily , in the short time I have been hunting in southeast Asia , I never meet one , always just seen tracks. I's not safe to hunt Sambar deers , the meat of the tigers , if you don't sit on the back of an elephant !
KurpfalzjagerThe elephant does not try to fight with the tiger ?
The african elephants seem to be more aggressive.
