    I'd beware of this hunt for the price alone...way too cheap. Is the hunt legal?

    We have been conducting the culling for the last 4 year and this is the first year it has been opened to guest hunters, so yes this is legal. we only started marking the guest hunting packages from today(way too late for the season) and that is why we are running a special.

    Renier, Who is the PH guiding this hunt, is it yourself or someone else?

    Do you have a webs site?
    Do you have some pictures from these previous hunts?

    Thanks

    brickburn i made a couple of enquiries and realise i met renier about three years ago in zambia, i knew him as kudu. he is based in mfuwe and we had a look around his operation. he dries the meat and sells to the locals , and the hides are sold for top quality leather, i think he said japan was a big buyer. he had some good ideas about ways to utilise surplus hippo, and also try and reintroduce them where the have been poached out so that they could in a way be used like beef cattle. he had plans for canning hippo meat for longer life and bigger distribution in zambia. i think he did a small run as a test. i think his biggest problem at the time was funding for a cannery etc. the culling was done by himself and i think his sons. i dont think he had internet so i think any replies will have to wait till he is where he can access a computer, might be wrong on that? as i said his plan seemed good but i suppose he is trying to raise the cash however he can. i dont know if he is a PH, or who would guide the hunts. i think if any of the hunting was on the luangwa in a GMA he will get opposition from the safari operators running the GMAs, and i would have thought maybe the lodges in the park wouldnt be happy with people hunting there, as opposed to some one doing a culling operation.... not sure.

    Thanks for some insight.

    Interesting use of the products. canning.

    I will await his arrival at a computer. I have grown to realize that it is not downtown L.A. Sometimes there are delays in responses. Important questions to have answered for sure.

    I would also be curious on the culling. I know that a foreigne can't legal hunt problem animals in Moz and heard it was the same in Zim and Zambia, could be wrong.

    these arent really pac hunts, he is given quite a large quota to cull as excess animals , bit like they used to do with elephant in the valley then utilise the products in a large commercial way.
