seems like you can find plenty of pictures of proud hunters sitting next to a massive bull with a heavy set of ivory, but pictures of people with there tuskless animals are much less common. lets face it, most people cannot afford a $25,000+ elephant hunt and the USA isnt exactly allowing importation of ivory from many locations so the tuskless elephant is usually the more practical option.

lets see your tuskless elephant pictures!

From that deal that was offered..... I want to see the photo of 3 of them stacked up like wart hogs!

People don't seem to realize that where there are good populations of elephants, there are usually too many of them and hunting by properly equipped and skilled trophy hunters is the absolute most humane and economically benificial way to manage those populations. Not to mention to positive social and nutrition value that properly hunted elephants provide to the local human populations.

Tuskless is a great affordable Ele hunt, it might be the most dangerous of all of the DG hunts as anytime you associate with a cow calf herd anything may happen. You will see more Eles as you look for a Tuskless and your approach can be much more difficult than a couple of bulls as you have that many more eyes and ears in play.
Would do it again

Yes, if you intend to bring back a few panels of hide my suggestion is to have them tan it "over there" you will save on shipping weight.

No elephant parts including the hide are allowed to be imported in to the US from Zimbabwe.

Prior to the ban, every tuskless hunt I remember was a non-exportable elephant.

When I shot my Tuskless in 2012 I was able to import the hide if I wanted..
Was under the impression that the current ban was for Ivory only

Edward if you know about Zim you would know PAC elephant hunts in Zimbabwe are ILLEGAL for tourist hunters which means us.

The April 2014 ban is far all elephant parts from Zim to the US.

This is the latest letter from USFW. It is an update from the already in place from April of 2014.

http://www.fws.gov/international/pdf/enhancement-finding-March-2015-elephant-Zimbabwe.pdf

Again every tuskless hunt I have seen offered (not to mention the four tuskless hunts I have done myself) in Zimbabwe was not exportable prior to the ban.

For some reason there may have been a few exportable ones here or there but few if any.

Since the ban I would STRONGLY advise not even trying to take an elephant hair bracelet in the US.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
