Prices are steep.
Those prices are high
I saw a couple of outfitters on a FB page going on about how important it was for a client to book right now as prices were guaranteed to go up in 2019! Better save while you can!
Of course one of the guys said a couple of years ago that Sable and color variants would keep going up too .
I received the 2019 catalog in today's mail and wouldn't you know it I won the same "prize". No thanks, I'm sure I can do better at the DSC show in a couple of weeks!
Wow, those are steep prices.
Be cautious of auctions too.
Yup; They can be great deals, just have to discern whether that is a deal for the buyer or the outfitter
The “grand prize” probably includes some ocean front property in Arizona...
And this is where AH helps, this thread being a case in point .
At those prices on trophy fees, the day fees Better be a Free.
Hell, at those prices, the hunt ought to come with hot and cold running maids in your room!
Of the animals on the list posted that I have taken on my two trips over, all but one was at least 100 percent more than what I paid. The Burchell's zebra was 50 percent higher than what I paid at Paw Prints.
Barber sheep-Barbary sheep or Aoudad perhaps?Or sheep with very short hair??
Hybrid Mouvlon Sheep-Mouflon perhaps? crossed with something?
Simitar Oryx-Scimitar Oryx perhaps or crossed?
Tamara Sheep-Damara Sheep which is basically a tame sheep with big horns?
Ferral goats- Feral Goats perhaps? @US$2650 each!!!! Holy crap!!
I would just walk away to be quite honest.....
You've got that one all wrong...
This sheep is dangerous game.. he carries scissors and a straight razor...
If he gets really pissed he will come after you with a beard trimmer!
You mean one of those cut throat flip open jobs???
The Middle Eastern variety is even more dangerous. They use fire too.
(I used to visit a small town barbershop in Lebanon, and the guys would finish my neck hair with fire)
Not bad if your after a monkey, jackal, and baboon!
Prices are about 30% higher than many other good outfitters. The hartebeest price is the highest I've ever seen!
I also won a "FREE" safari once and it was the same extremely high trophy fees, it was a well known outfit with a good reputation but very high trophy fees!
My advice is to pass on the hunt, there are better and safer options out there.
It’s not necessarily a scam. Many outfitters are only emailing Trophy fees and not listing them online for various reasons.
As has been said do your homework!
