African hunts for cape buffalo are far cheaper than a griz hunt in north america.

Yes, it is. I think you can do a week-long buffalo hunt for under $10k.

Cape Buffalo prices range significantly from an all-inclusive game ranch hunt in South Africa to a full blown traditional East African safari. A typical Cape Buffalo 5 - 10 day package hunt cost will range from $9,000 - $20,000. Often the lower end prices are for management bulls. Research your hunt thoroughly to find the hunting conditions that most suit your needs and take note of the excluded extra costs involved in the hunt. On the bigger open territories of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique, the buffalo package prices range from $12,000 - $20,000. Dangerous game daily rates range from $600 - $1200 per day with a trophy fee of approximately $6,000 - $8,500. Note, the latest trend on the South African ranch hunts is to sell trophies by the inch.

The short answer is no.
Would I be happy to have a 348WIN if a bear was chewing on me; yes.

This is what you do.

Come here in mid to late June and bring a tent and a VHF radio and wait for the city or Tribal organization here announce they need a party of bear hunters to hunt down the problem bears in and around the village. Sometimes they will provide the gas.

All bears regardless of race, color, age, and gender will be shot on sight.

Again...Mostly browns though.

I like your sign, Scott. If I could get my hands on a vintage Winchester in the caliber mentioned above I wouldn't hesitate to use it on grizzly bear. More than adequate to knock a bear down, even a big bear.

Posco, it's unreal what rifle calibers were used on Big Bears back in the early days before Alaska's statehood.

I've killed 4 grizzly bears up to near 8 foot with a lever action 308 win. Several moose ( maybe 10). I don't remember how many Blacks ( bears). There, real life experience.

30k hunt. Hmm guess I will have to stick with my expensive public land squirrel hunting. I thought I was spending to much on gas and snacks to drive an hour each way to let the boys shoot a few squirrel. Darn sure is more fun hunting new areas with the large woods vs just on our familiar farm.

Even if I saved 5 years I couldn't spend that for a hunt for me. I would feel bad and do something else with the family. Deer will probably be the only big game I ever get to hunt. To bad elk would be nice.

You know why prices are so high? Market demand. People will pay it. I wouldn't. I'm with you.

Yep As much as I need a brown bear AK has just overpriced themselves I am focusing on Africa. Much cheaper and you get to shoot something everyday If you can live with a skull mount or tanned hide you can save a crap ton of money

Guide license $900
Insurance $1200
DNR camp fee $500
Native Corp Trespass fee $1500
Hunt Report filed with the State $300
Lake and Peninsula Borough $250
My air fare to hunting area $1500

Total $6150

As a guide these are my annual fixed expenses before I add the actual expense associated with the individual hunt. Everyone thinks guides make a fortune, so every governmental agency imaginable has their hand sticking out wanting a cut of the action.

I only conduct one or two bear hunts a year. My basic overhead costs are a little ridiculous IMO.
