One of my outfitters just let me know that he has one opening left got his 2015 yacht based Alaska Mountain Goat. Goat hunting is never easy but this as easy as it will get. Based from their 50 foot yacht, with hot showers beds and home cooked meals it does not get any better.
Based from the boat you will head out each day glassing the hillsides from the waterways. once a big billy is spotted the rest is on foot. While Goat hunting is never easy this is probably as easy as you will get. I do recommend hunters be in decent shape and you should not have a problem. Average goats are 9.5″ with some great hair. Hunt dates are Sept 30 to Oct 06, cost is $11,500 plus license and tag.
With Buffalo prices around Africa continuing to rise, there are still a few good deals to be had. My outfitter in Tanzania is offering a Tanzania Buffalo hunt special 2015 package for AH members. While Tanzania will never be cheap, the option to take 2 Buffalo on one safari does make it much more attractive. Especially with the cost of a single buff hunt in Zimbabwe right at $18,000.
The area is in the Selous and has not been hunted for many years, price includes: All inclusive wilderness luxury tented camp, 3 course dinner, butler, daily laundry, experienced staff and some of the best PH’s in the business.
The hunt is 10 days and includes all the government fees, transfer and import of 1x rifle. There is also some limited PG available on quota as well, PG is on a TF basis.
10 day 1x Buffalo included $19,000, second Buffalo can be added for $7,000 USD.
Prices do not include additional trophy fees, export of trophies, or tips.
Well this may be the last of the affordable Elephant hunts, with TZ and Zim still not allowed to export to the USA, I really expect prices will continue to rise.
10 day bull Elephant hunt, the area is in the Caprivi strip and the Elephant is exportable to the USA if you are so inclined. The outfitter expects to take a mature bull between the 40-60 pound range.
The are has a good Elephant population and success rate should be excellent. Cost for the hunt is $29,000 USD, if an Elephant is not taken you will be refunded the trophy fee of $22,500.

Esquina, Corrientes is one the few places in Argentina where one can find exceptional fishing and world class wing shooting. From the Estancia, we offer limitless miles of Golden Dorado filled-waters and countless acres of farmlands with millions of Dove. Hunters have the opportunity to shoot around 1500 shells per day and anglers will have shots at 10-20lb Golden Dorado.
Cordoba does boast higher numbers of birds, but the addition of some fishing after the Dove hunt is unbeatable and something they don’t offer. Our Estancia has huge numbers of birds and offers fantastic wing shooting and fishing from the same lodge. With short drives to and from the fields and water you wont spend all day in the car.

The Dorado is a fantastic fish, I did this a few years ago and it was a great experience. If anybody is interested in going, I would certainly tag along.
Every serious angler should battle Golden Dorado at least once. These thick and gold colored fish are not only stunning to behold, they offer a blood pumping thrill to hook and land. Their aggressive strikes and acrobatics are matched only by Peacock Bass. A Dorado’s strong jaws and sharp teeth destroy flies, bend hooks and their strength will find any weak point in your rod.
From the Estancia, we fish 3 different water systems, all of which are undisturbed and teaming with exotic wildlife. With our expert guides, anglers enjoy 9 hours on the water, exploring the numerous creeks and channels that make up the Corriente and Parana River system.
Back at the lodge, five course dinners are served with fresh, regional dishes and fine wines. Non-anglers can enjoy viewing nature via horseback or boat. We even offer high-volume dove shooting within short drives from the lodge.

Here is something a bit different from one of my South American outfitters.
Find some of Argentina’s best Trout fishing while floating unspoiled rivers in solitude. Anglers fish from comfortable drift boats and by wading the shores and gravel bars. Dries and nymphs produce the majority of Rainbows and Browns, while streamers land usually the biggest Brown Trout. Thirty-fifty fish days are common.
Each trip is supported by a baggage boat rowed by our camp crew. Every 2 anglers will share a 4 man tent and sleep comfortably on cots and air mattresses. Each morning, breakfast includes eggs to order, fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt, juice and coffee. At lunch and dinner we dine on appetizers, grilled meats, fresh salads, pastas, fresh baked breads and dessert. Of course, we serve plenty of delicious wines and cold beer. The camp crew makes camp each day and completes daily chores. Your only job is to fish, eat, drink and sleep. With no daily drives to and from the river, you can spend every waking hour on the water.
On these trips, anglers will maximize their fishing time, all the while enjoying fine meals, evening campfires, a helpful staff and the beauty of wild Patagonia.

My outfitter in Saskatchewan has some openings to fill on his Whitetail Deer hunt. Once considered the mecca for free range bruiser whitetail, Saskatchewan has been overlooked for the past few years.
The big Whitetail deer are still there, we have openings throughout the year if you are interested. The area is over 60,000 acres and is home to some big deer. This is Indian land and one of the big benefits of the hunt is the multi species license. With their license you are not limited to just whitetail. On license you are allowed one of anything that walks in front of your stand. You can also purchase and additional license to keep hunting if you choose. License covers one: whitetail, elk, mule deer, moose, bear, bison, wolf or caribou.
The Whitetail hunts are 6 days long and include food, lodging, transportation, heated blinds, airport pickup and trophy prep. The hunt is $5,000 plus license of $500. You can take additional species if you purchase additional tags at $1,500 each.
There is a $1,000 penalty however if you take a Whitetail smaller than 140″.
I am heading up for a hunt this year as well as Steve Scott will be in camp filming for one of his TV shows. We have some openings if anyone wants to join that week as well. We will be in camp the third week of November.
Pickup and drop off will be from Saskatoon airport.
Let me know if you are interested.

My outfitter in New Mexico just leased a new ranch in unit 7B, the ranch is privately held and just over 12,000 acres. The area has not been hunted in 2 years. One one side it is bordered by an Indian reservation that does little hunting and on the other side it is bordered by a government owned are that also does very little hunting.
The lodge is an old bunkhouse, nice and clean, but rustic. meals and guiding are included in the price of the 5 day hunt as well as the trophy fee for one bull elk. the largest elk ever taken off the ranch was by a previous owner and it scored 340″. That is exceptional and I would expect to see bulls in the 280-300″ range as more of a norm.
I have 4 openings for bow season and 4 openings for rifle season. I do expect to see some good numbers on the ranch as well some nice elk taken this year.
Hunts are 5 long, bow hunts start Sept 16, rifle hunts can be done from late October through the end of the season in Dec. Minimum 2x hunters.
Hunts are $4,500 plus NM tax and license cost $569.
I have an outfitter in Namibia with a leftover tag and short notice Leopard hunt. He is willing to make someone a great deal for the Leopard hunt if you can make the dates work.
He is a very small operator and only hunts his personal ground. His area is 12,000 hectares not far from Windhoek. There is a good Leopard population in the area, but its always a tough hunt. If you put in the time and work hard, I’m confident you can up the odds of getting one.
The hunt is baited and is 14 days long. Pre-baiting is included in the price. Additional baits may be necessary to refresh baits. The outfitter uses only Zebra for bait, hunters can of course take the skin home. Mountain Zebra US$590, Burchells Zebra US$1,170.
He also has a variety of plains game available as well.
He has two openings available in his schedule for the hunt, you can pick whatever 14 days suits your needs to make it work.

My outfitter in Northern New Mexico has a couple of openings in his schedule this year for Mule Deer and Elk. The area is 10,000 acres in the middle of a huge very famous ranch. There is a very nice lodge on the ranch with an on staff chef. Of course the hunting is fantastic, with the winter Elk migration running through the property in the fall.
His area is known for trophy Mule Deer and he has two hunts in the rut left for this year. The hunts can be taken in November- December. While this is not the cheapest hunt it is a fantastic one. This is one of the best areas for Mule Deer in North America. 5 day Mule Deer hunt is $13,000 PP plus tax and license.

One of my British Columbia outfitters, just wrote with a cancellation hunt in one of his best areas for Moose. 2 spots open for a Moose hunt that has traditionally been his best area for big bulls.

Hunters are responsible for their flights to Dease lake British Columbia, gun permits, tips, trophy shipping, meat processing and shipment.
The area is 2850 sq miles, only 80 miles from the Yukon border. They credit their proximity to the Yukon as the reason for their success with big bulls.
The area is remote and does take some “getting” to. Hunters fly into Vancouver then onto Smithers, where you will overnight before you fly into Dease lake British Columbia for your final flight into camp, via float plane and then on horses into camp.
The camp holds a max of 3 hunters and on 5 separate occasions we have filled all three Moose tags in a single day. they refer to this as their 3in1 camp. This has been historically a very special camp for rut Moose and we did not Hunt it last year at all. The opportunity is fantastic for the quality of the Hunt and the Bulls.
The former World Record Mountain Caribou was taken very near to this area and we have continued to see excellent bulls here as well. There are years that the Caribou head to the bush during this period.
Regular price for this hunt is $15,200, the hunt is discounted to $10,500 PP, we have two spots open.
Mountain caribou can be added for $5,850 plus tag cost of 267.50, there may e a grizzly bear tag available as well.

Bolivia has become a fantastic destination for wing-shooters, the shorter flight and the numerous birds make it a great getaway. The season is still going strong and runs through November. The number of birds in the air is astronomical, but unlike Argentina the birds lay down during the warmer part of the day, making for a great time to take a siesta. While Bolivia is home to both dove and pigeon populations, we do tend to shoot more pigeon in the area.
3 Day hunts are just $2,065 and 4 day hunts are $2,750. Shotgun shells are $14.00 per box, and gun entry is $50 USD or gun rental $65 per day. Bolivian Visa is required for entry.

Here is a very cool hunting trip, a backpack Mountain Goat hunt in Canada with one of my outfitter has on offer. The remoteness of the area, hiking, packing and conditions, does limit this trip to hunters in good to excellent shape.
The area is in a remote part of the Canadian Rockies and is conducted by pack in only. Hunters should be in good to excellent shape.
Hunt is 10 days, one day hike into the area and a couple of days on the mountain to get to the Goats and take one, weather depending.
The area holds some very old Mountain Goats and receives little hunting pressure because of its location.
Maximum of two hunters at a time, this would make a good father son trip.
Hunt is $9,000 PP plus tax, tag, license, HRPF fund and royalty, total is $10,460 for the hunt.
We can also combine this with Moose, Bear or Wolf, or change areas to his main camp with warm beds, showers and hot meals for Moose and Bear.

We have landed a 41,000 acre ranch north of Houston that is covered in feral swine and coyotes. The owner wants to run a couple of helicopter hunts over the land and thin out or wipe out his growing problem. These eradication pig hunts are the most fun you can have with a gun in your hand.
The pig hunts are conducted from Friday to Sunday, arrive Friday for safety briefing and instruction, then start flying. We run two shooters in the chopper at once with Ar-15’s. Flights are run in shifts of 30-45 minutes (or till you run out of ammo), everyone has an opportunity throughout the day to fly at different times.
Shooters typically run ar-15’s as this is a wooded area and we would be flying above the trees. you can use a shotgun if you wish some of our clients have had good luck with them in the past.
In the past we have averaged from 200-500 pigs in a weekend and usually 12-14 coyotes.
We will be setting up a couple of trips in the spring in February and March, they tend to fill up quickly and if you are interested please let me know.
Regular price is $3,750, but the new ranch does not have a lodge, there is a hotel just 10 minutes away. We provide; food, soft drinks, and beer after the hunting is done, safety gear and instruction, state permits, helicopter, pilot and chopper time.
We do not provide firearms, ammo or a valid Texas hunting license ($55 for non resident)
Price for these eradication pig hunts in Texas will be $3,500 for the weekend.

Hunts start just before dusk and usually run 6-7 hours from there. No limit on pigs. We run 100% opportunity and average about 6-8 pigs per night but we have shot over 20 before in just a few hours.
