Hunts of a life time.

There are many hunters out there who are getting older, or just don't want to hunt hard for their game. With the Safari Club International, this is the perfect opportunity to chase your dreams. On these ranches there are many different types of species such as buffalo, antelope, elephant, leopard, lions, rhinos etc you can hunt.

Many wealthy hunters will pay the money for a trip of a lifetime to tag one of these amazing animals. These hunts don't come cheap. The prices range anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000 depending on the animal you want to hunt. This hunting can be very dangerous. In fact, in 2012, two professional hunters were struck and killed by two cape buffalo.

It cost $10,000 to hunt Minaret Station. Trophy fees range anywhere from $5,000 to $19,000 depending on the size of the bull and the size of the antlers. This is not including tips, food, housing, and guiding.

Also the more money it is to harvest a trophy animal, the more protection the animal gets because a most people will flat out not pay that kind of money to harvest big game. But for a wealthy hunter this can be a positive thing because they will definitely get a good quality hunt that they pay for.
