Please remember that passports are
absolutely necessary. You will not be allowed to cross the
border without one.

permit at the end of your hunt for all the animals you might have
Hunters will be with guides at all times. Our guides are very
experienced at scoring "in the field" and will try to get
you to the top of your chosen category.
Our primary goal is to get your expensive, irreplaceable skins and
horns to you in excellent condition. All capes will be skinned
off, cooled and then frozen. If you are driving up and are
planning to haul back your trophies, bring along extra coolers for
your frozen capes (to keep them frozen). Also bring extra
coolers for your meat. If you are flying we have coolers
available on the Ranch for you to purchase at wholesale price.
With proper export
papers from us you will not encounter any problems at the border

also needed for hunting items such as rangefinders (not necessary as

client to collect the trophy bull elk of their choice and
dreams. After you have your elk, please discuss with us any
further hunts you may wish to partake in.
