into the states. The lion is one of them. There is a way to do so that is still a bit iffy. It is the enhancement program. Our taxidermy is checking on that. Either way, we knew ahead of time that there was a good chance we would not be able to bring them back in. The hunt itself was well worth what we spent. And contrary to what one know it all said on here it was not a cull hunt. It was a standard male lion hunt to keep the male lions in check due to no hunters in the area for almost 2 years due to the covid crap and the lion population was getting a bit out of hand. If this hunt became available again I would go in a minute.

GNR is right. I have been waiting 3 years for word on my

Polar bear that has been on the non ship list along with several of my African trophies. One of my hunting friends has been waiting almost 3 years for his African lion to be shipped. No word on when that will be. He also has a Bontebok that is at least 3 years old. The anti hunters are pushing for the many countries to put various animals on the embargo list, for no reason at all.

now that R. Anderson mentioned it, I shot a

It is ridiculous that an animal hunted legally in a foreign country can’t be imported because the government caved to some bunny huggers. Let the countries that have the critters make the call on whether they are endangered.

Remember the Government doesn’t think logically,

look at the money lost to the countries involved

figure $85,000 and up for a polar bear, $165,000 for a white rhino, $125,000 and up for an elephant, $85,000 for a male lion and so on. The countries involved could rake in a lot of money for conservation by these animals being taken and imported. And the amount of animals taken wouldn't cause any imbalance in the species, especially if they limit the kill to the old bulls that are not in the breeding herd anymore. Also not that many hunters could afford those prices and if they limited the take to 2 or 3 old bulls a year the money accrued would make a difference. But very few hunters would spend that kind of money knowing they couldn't import the mount into the states,
