    Default Botswana Elephant hunts

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...ban-on-hunting

    Wonder what this will do to the price of an elephant hunt? Especially if you do not take the ivory or trophy?

    The lift on the ban is good. There were many communities dependant on these hunts as a source of livelihood.
