Big game hunting is not for the budget conscious; permits can cost more than a new car. It just depends on the game animal chosen. In some districts of Africa elephants are numerous and hunting is allowed by permit. The meat is harvested and distributed to the villages and the successful hunter can return to the United States with the trophy, including the tusks, but s/he cannot sell or donate the ivory for as long as s/he lives. Enrichment is forbidden. However upon the hunter’s death the ivory can be sold or donated freely within the U.S.
