I've been looking at a lot of outfitters planning on doing another hunt in South Africa next year and some of these have a MISSED SHOT fee this is were you get charged if your bullet hits a tree insted of the animal. This just happened to me on my wifes first Black Bear hunt the first bear she shot at hit a bush and was caught on film as a clean miss and in 2 days of searching not 1 drop of blood was found, price for shooting bush $300. When looking closer at the details of some of the hunting safaris that I was considering, one or two of them have the same thing. Now I understand Wounded animals will be charged in full, the meat of these animals help to cover the overhead of the farm and there is a chance that even if not a serious wound the animal could get an infection and die at a loss to the farm, but if it is a clean miss then whats up with this Missed shots will be charged at 15% of the animals price. In South Africa if your hunting something like Kudu, Eland or Nyala you could very well miss and hit brush as this is where they live at a cost of 15% over your already $350/$450 daily fee i.e. Kudu cost $2500 miss 15% = $375. Now as I said I understand the wounded thing but in South Africa most of the hunting farms are high fenced these animals are not going anywhere they may relocate to the other side of the farm but their still there to hunt so I don't understand the missed shot policy. Whats your thought on the subject?
