We get letters and sometimes they aren’t written to chew me out. Like this one referencing my claim that you can find an Africa safari cheaper than an Alaska hunt:
I really enjoy your writing, especially about your African safaris. You were a big influence on my decision to go, and you’re right about the cost. I spent 10 days in the Limpopo Province with ESA Safaris and harvested seven animals for half what an Alaskan or Canadian Moose would have cost!
All the best to you and your family.
Ha! Validated and vindicated. I suspect Jay was referencing this blog in which I promised he’d find an Africa safari cheaper than an Alaska hunt: https://ronspomeroutdoors.com/blog/how-to-plan-africa-safari-for-less/

If all this doesn’t fire you up the way it did Jay above, well, you’re just not trying hard enough?
By the way, there’s nothing wrong with an Alaska hunt, but they do tend to be quite pricey. You really can find an Africa safari cheaper. And if you hurry you can meet dozens of African PHs, guides, and agents during this winter’s hunting conventions (2020) and even book hunts right there. Or check out BookYourHunt.com for the lowest prices possible. You might also deal direct with Immenhof Safaris or Fort Richmond Safaris.
