Yep the locals eat the hooves and intestines. Nothing goes to waste!I did a plains game hunt in the Karoo area of South Africa in 2012 on a 56,000 acre ranch. Absolutely NOTHING goes to waste! What the outfitter didn't keep for himself, his family or crew was sold locally. Parts of the animal that most Americans consider inedible is used. Nothing and I mean NOTHING goes to waste..
Everything is expensive these days but you can harvest several animals in Africa for the price of one in US. We went several times with free flights United Milage Points. The Package Hunt was fairly inexpensive, but then the Taxidermy and shipping the mounts back was as much as the Hunt.Not sure Im on the same subject or not. But......Does anyone know what the cheapest option is to go hunting in Africa?
A cull hunt, taking pictures and a skin or two that is done there rather than mounts is about as cheap as it gets. You can always add one trophy animal, with or without mount and not ramp up the cost much. There are some excellent taxidermist in SA but there are also some really bad ones.Not sure Im on the same subject or not. But......Does anyone know what the cheapest option is to go hunting in Africa?
