    Hi there DXT you need to figure out first in what price class you are interested in.

    The best place I know of is Zambia Luangwa Valley South I hunted for an Outfit up there who have a 100% record on both Lion and Leopard for the last six years and it just amazing over there. The only draw back is the price witch could be a big one but if you really want that Leopard with the Bow it would be the place to be.

    You might have a look at RSA as well the Leopard population is doing well in the Limpopo province more specifically, but make no mistake hunting Leopard with the bow is no easy matter. The advantage is that the hunt might be bit cheaper but you will defiantly have to allow for the full 12 days of hunting to make sure you get the cat.

    The best thing that you can do for now is figure out what your budget is and how much time you will have to hunt the Leopard then start to look at a place and time of year.

    Hope this helps?

    Just bare in mind that Leopard may not be hunted with a bow under the new regulations in South Africa!

    I am not sure about other provinces in SA but you can hunt a Leopard with the bow in Limpopo you just need to acquire a special permit to hunt the Leopard with the bow and comply with the bow specifications but other than that you will be just fine.

    NATIONAL Regulations in SA

    BIODIVERSITY ACT,
    2004 (ACT 10 OF 2004) in respect of THREATENED OR
    PROTECTED SPECIES were published to provide a greater
    degree of control over the hunting and game ranching
    industries. For the first time ever certain restrictions on
    bowhunting became law. These regulations were due to
    become effective on 1 June 2007, but the effective date was
    then postponed to 1 February 2008 after strong objection from
    lion breeders (who are apparently taking government to court)
    and also from some of the provincial governments.
    Bowhunters should note that, in terms of these regulations, the
    following animals will not be allowed to be hunted with a
    bow:
    White rhino (Ceratotherium simum)
    Black rhino (Diceros bicornis)
    Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus)
    Elephant (Loxodonta Africana)
    Cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus)
    Spotted hyena (Crocuta crocuta)
    Brown hyena (Parahyaena brunnea)
    Wild dog (Lycaon pictus)
    Lion (Panthera leo)
    Leopard (Panthera pardus)

    Well now I am very confused the wildlife official in Ellisras told me we can still hunt them with bow if we follow the guidelines. If anyone has got some more info on that I would like to hear about it.

    Also see the South African Bowhunters Association (SABA) website by clicking here.

    They have also published it on their web site. This all has to do with the new norms and standards and the TOPS regulations/ Biodiversity act

    I know this is confusing though, but what can one say?
