The future of hunting in Africa!
There are a few factors that may have a big influence on the future of hunting in Africa. But I would like to discuss two issues that concern me the most.
I would like to start by saying that the future of what we as hunters live for lies in the hands of the hunter himself. Yes we are all human and different individuals with different ideas and ways of doing things. A certainty is when it comes to hunting us all having one thing in common and that is to protect the legacy of hunting and wildlife.
The fact that hunting became a healthy business operation in Africa saved the wild land habitats where animals live in. Without these habitats wild animal populations can not exist! This is something the animal rights movement do not understand and apart from themselves this is the biggest thread to the future of hunting and wildlife in Africa. Ban hunting and these natural habitats will develop into agricultural land or even worse, a mining company will come and turn these habitats upside down.
Secondly we as hunters must be careful of how we do things and the way of exposing hunts that is captured on cameras and DVD’s. Do not give the animal rights movement ammunition against us. We can become our own enemy’s without knowing it.
We must stop throwing accusations to each other and stand together as one big family. Threw ethical hunting and sustainable utilisation we can make a big difference.
