Is Rock Hyrax a legal game animal?
I'm going to Zimbabwe this June with my dad and among some plainsgame animals, I'm interested in hunting a few more unusual species. I'd like to take a Rock Hyrax for fun but we're confused about whether it would be legal to export it.
We will be possibly hunting in two plainsgame areas, one of which is private land. Originally, our PH said that we couldn't take hyrax because it wasn't on quota. However, after talking further, we might be able to visit the private land where it is at the landowner's discretion whether we can take hyrax. Our PH said we could hunt a Rock Hyrax there, but it's still not on "quota" so we might not be able to take it home.
Is it a Zimbabwe law or US law that hyrax is not exportable? The Hyrax is not listed on the AH's article for hunted animal species in Zim.
It's not too important for me to hunt one, but I'd like to know for sure whether or not it's legal.
