That also sounds like my dream hunt. I would love to spend 2-3 like that. Hmmm, maybe even Alaska :)

True wilderness hunts like that are still available. I would like to do one myself.

I think a trip like that would be a once in a lifetime experience,kudos Slowpoke,it never even crossed my mind. I would add one item/tool to the list tough,a flyrod,yeah,I think a 8wt Sage will do nicely on a trip like that.

Speak of the devil. It just so happens that I will be in Denver, Colorado the first week of November. It's not quite Missouri, but do you (Tom) have any detail on hunts that time of year?

I am seriously considering staying a few extra days to hunt something. Not sure what would be affordable but that is a problem I can solve. You don't know of anyone who would like to exchange a hunt experience? Something like assist me to hunt a stag/bear/whatever and come over to SA and I will reciprocate with a kudu/eland/zebra/whatever hunt on this side?

Hmm. Your timing should be pretty good actually. Feel free to email me. I don't have any direct contacts out there but might be able to help in some way. Tom

ludwig wrote::shock: :shock: That is quite a lot of dough. $10k translates to about R100k. Just for comparison I compiled a list of animals that I would be able to hunt with R100k. (I used +- Trophy Prices for locals)

Kudu Trophy Bull (R12k)
Eland Trophy Bull (R10k)
Zebra (R6k)
Nyala Trophy Bull (14k)
Waterbuck Trophy Bull (R8k)
Buffalo Cow - TB (R15k)
Giraffe Bull (R18k)
Bushbuck Trophy Bull (R5k)
Gemsbok Trophy (R6k)
Blue Wildebeest Trophy Bull (R4k)
Impala Trophy Ram (R2k)

All the above for the price of 1 Moose?? :shock: :shock: That is stiff to say the least! Now I understand why the International hunters hunt 20 animals on 1 trip to Africa...


A friend of mine has just cancelled on his Mountain Nyala hunt as the outfitted increased the prices again. $75,000-00 was his threshhold! He said that he is only willing to pay up to a certain amount for an animal..... I must say that there is only 1 African GAME animal left for him to take and that's the mountain nyala

Good day Tom.

Can you give us some idea how much a ‘normal’ hunt will cost. This is for Whitetails etc.

And it would help if you can guide me of where in the US it would be and some web addresses will centrally help.

What do we need to hunt in the US e.g. licenses and and. What do we need to do to get these docs done?

And lastly the method of hunt. And what methods can we use or ask for over there.

Thanks

Where you hunt will determine the cost. You can come here and hunt with me and it will only cost you about $60 for a license and the game you take will be free. Or you can hunt with an outfitter and have a chance at taking a trophy animal. As far as those hunts go the sky is the limit. I would say they start at $1500 and go to $10,000 for high fence hunts. If you hunt with me you "may" get a chance to shoot a deer. You will most likely get to shoot a hog. It all depends on where you go and who you go with. If you want more info let me know.

Hey Guys,

Have alook at this website from an outfter in Illinois for trophy Whitetail Buck wich was very informative and made for some intresting reading: www.gallatinbottoms.com

I can only assume it would be it would be pretty much on par for a S.A hunter visitig the USA as it would be for the inverse.
