JJ Hack is absolutely right.

Every year it gets harder and harder. I remember when my father went to Tanganyika (now Tanzania) and elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, and rhino were on the general license. Except for buffalo, most of us are now limited to plains game even with higher fees.

The Africans are multiplying like crazy, and despite all the rhetoric about the game paying for itself, Africans and game don't mix.

South Africa will be the last because of the large ranches owned by Arikaaners. But already their children are leaving the country. They can't get jobs due to affirmative action on steroids. How much longer can this last?

Go now.

Throw in the UN small arms treaty into the mix. One issue will be traveling with ammo. We all need to get involved as this is not going away.

JJ, so once the hunter dollars dwindle off, you don't think adjustments will be made to get that industry rolling again?

No, there is to much strife which include affirmative action, land taxes, well taxes, gun regulations, it's crumbling slowly but surely

If Africa is a dream for you, it's time to go. I shudder to think what the next 10 years will bring.

Well revenue drying up tends to make some rethink their policies....unless you are a CA liberal.
