    I was just wondering what happens financially in an instance like this. I doubt PH'S have a health plan but they have families and I assume must have some kind of health insurance. Or is Healthcare in Africa subsidized by the state?

    So I had this conversation with my PH in Zim in 2014 and this is how I recall it, but note that the conversation was indeed quite a while back.

    To my recollection, there was no "normal" health insurance as we know it. If you got sick and had to go to the doctor then you paid cash, period.

    The PH did have some type of catastrophic event type insurance from offshore somewhere, not Zim, kinda a Global Rescue type deal. It was designed for something exactly like a mauling/goring/ stomping... I think it covered up to $1M.

    @Philip Glass may unfortunately now know more about this and have much more up to date information than I've provided...

    I think there will be some fundraising efforts being made in short order.

    Phillip you certainly have exciting trips. Glad to hear everyone survived.
    Let us know how we can help Scott. I am sure there are several that would join in.

    Thought about the hunt report and next time you decide to go trying to scratch a big cat behind the ears with your rifle barrel, I will let you borrow a double for a couple weeks. One of these days Mr Spots is on my wish list.

    Philip..first off congrats on finally getting Mr Spots! Wished it would have been in a more traditional manner! Lol! If your still around Scott please tell him Wes and Sandy are saying prayers for his speedy recovery. I was fortunate to have Scott as my PH on a Zim safari in 2007. Best PH I have ever hunted with. It doesn't surprise me in the least that Scott did what he did. He is a true professional. By the way, kudu's to you also for keeping a level head when things went South. Very admirable!

    Thanks and I'll pass along your sentiments and prayers to Scott. Yes he is the best in many ways and I will certainly hunt with him again in the near future. He is a great storyteller and that is great on long safaris!
