Question About Hunting in Africa

A lot of new converts to hunting Africa only bring back euro mounts and perhaps one cape for a shoulder mount which cuts the price way down.

On my African hunt I brought home 5 trophies for shoulder mounts and had one euro done there. My hunt cost $7000 and by the time I was done I was into the whole hunt near $22,000 with $1800 of that being airfare. But this also included all tips and 8 days of touring.

They say Africa is cheaper than hunting anywhere else but the dollars add up after you pull the trigger.

Thanks for all the responses about hunting in Africa!

We went on a photo safari to Tanzania last April. Maybe I'll go back some day to hunt. I posted a video of the trip on another thread, but here it is again:
