    Client safety is ultimately important. I get the easy target perception.


    Bluster and BS may help you get through the occasional shake down. I have also seen a "beer tax" at the road blocks work quite well.


    Why have all the male Outfitters and PH's left C.A.R?

    At some point, in light of people who place little value on human life, your gender does not matter. The machine is a great equalizer...

    Brick, then truthfully you haven't seen much...maybe on the way back to the trucks, we will let the gun bearers carry guns, but never on the tracks..

    Brick, I only saw your post of the youngster with AK after my previous reply, last year in May, myself and my PH in two separate Landcruisers, me in front got caught in an ambush, for over 25 minutes, we got out alive, without any bullet holes through our trucks, first 5 minutes was hell....after that we both even took out our phones and took videos, then with the help of a black in front of us in his taxi, made a break and drove through, would a woman PH be the right material, NO! Being a ph outside SA, takes a lot more than just guiding a client. Lets look at another aspect, we have to build our camps and open about 400km of road every year, do you think the indigenous people will listen to her or have any respect..NO!!

    I tell you my friend that the gender depends very very much down here special in the black community, this people don't see a woman with respect if they do not know her for some years, and she is hard like a rock !!!

    Furthermore if a white person are nice to them they will see this as a sign of weakness, and there is no way in the world this can be changed...

    It's therefore a much higher risk that a car getting highjacked when they see it's a woman driving !

    Just how things are...

    I have watched so much video tape of hunting trips and I tell you I have never seen the PH carrying the hunters gun.
    Maybe they edit it out to make the hunter feel better.
    Maybe you do it. I just have not seen it. The PH usually has their own damn gun to take care of.

    Just like in the videos, you don't see all the bad shots..I have hunted for a few of the ESPN channels, ...sometimes when I watch the edited version, can't believe I was even on the same hunt. As for my bird dogs, they got so confused having to do retakes and shots just being fired into the air, I think they will bite anyone they see with a camera.

    Seriously, my wife would not care.

    You don't need 45 days to demonstrate integrity or a lack thereof.

    yeahhh, , id be hunting hard and showing all the integruity needed aswell
    im of the belief , that we are all human
    and if anyone ,of us , male and female , were on a 45 day hunt ,with anyone , p.h or another hunter of the opposite gender
    and never sneaked a peak , or had an inappropriate though ,in that time , im sorry but I think you were lying , even if you were a poof.....

    and I really have no problem being guided by a woman , as already said , this September , ive already laid down deposit to do this ......

    Plains game hunting is mainly judging trophy's in a friendly environment... Even my mother in law can do that.... Speak yesterday with a old friend and outfitter in RSA, he told me a 30 year old female game guide in a private game reserve ask him if she passing the PH course if it's was possible that she could work for him later on.... He told her that it's not a good idea...

    To me he say that he would never put his business in risk to employ a female ph...

    Perhaps we are a bit more conservative that what you are in U.S and Australia.
