    tom mentioned it in his moz croc/hippo hunt offer. it was talked about in reno, but at the time the people i knew didnt know the reason.game depts not keeping their cites paperwork up to date causes problems, zambia had the same thing with crocs a few years ago for awhile, and there are plenty there ,but the game dept hadnt filled in their paper work and that was it till they managed to correct the "oversight".........problem is it didnt get sorted overnight so i hope the moz lot get this sorted faster , but i wouldnt hold my breath.

    You have to ask USFWS to let you in on this stuff.

    This issue seems to be due to Recommendations of the Standing Committee at CITES.
    According to a "Notification to the Parties" Geneva, 25 September 2012.
    http://www.cites.org/eng/notif/2012/E059.pdf
    It appears this recommendation will affect the exportation of Hippo trophies from Mozambique and Cameroon as well?

    Hunted Africa...are there other continents to hunt?

    I am in touch with some "people on the ground" (my Moz outfitter and trophy shipment people) and there is some optimism that this will be handled in short order. That might be wishful thinking but I am a positive guy. And I think it' affects more than just the good ole USA, CITES trade suspension would affect all countries who participate in CITES....

    Thanks Nathan. Yes is is frustrating. Hopefully they will have it sorted out before too long. The biggest frustration lies in the attitude of USFWS toward the American hunter. What they have been doing with foreign trophy shipments for the last year or so is not only causing frustration, it's affecting the whole industry, especially for Africans dependent upon hunters from the states. Alot of people are looking at staying at "home" instead of hunting in Africa and dealing with USFWS to bring their trophies home. In the long run, conservation efforts suffer.

    What do you expect from USFWS...it is controlled by the administration in power. They would like nothing better than to stop all hunting and gun ownership, conservation be dammed.

    Agreed. The SOB is making no attempt to hide his dislike of hunters and gun owners.
