    Default Status of Lion Hunting in South Africa?

    There has been a lot of talk about the end of lion hunting in South Africa. Last I heard, the court hearing was to be held in November. Does anyone have an update on the future of lion hunting in South Africa and where we stand with the courts and hearings?

    Hi Mtsewart44

    The whole lion thing has been overshadowed by the Rhino poaching.

    All I know is it is still open and think it won’t change any time soon like in the next year?

    Sorry I could not be of any more help.

    Best Regards

    I just hunted 2 lion there I picked up at the Phasa auction. The day before I arrived, I found out baiting had been closed and is now illegal. This is not well known. Yes, I got 2 and did enjoy the thrill of hunting by tracking. Without baiting, success will drop.

    Depending upon the size of the property I wouldn't think baiting is real necessary anyway. Just curious, how big was the property and how many days did it take for you to collect two?
    There is only one degree of dead . . . there are many degrees of wounded

    Wow........that is about 185,000 acres. Sounds like a great place. Can you please fill me in on what outfit this is because I didn't know there were any places to hunt in RSA with that much land in one chunk. I would really like to get more information on an operation of that size.

    Hello guys,

    The court hearing was last week and the court ruled that hunting of lion will be continued as always. I do not have all the spesific details but only know that it's not being stopped by the government. I will find out more and keep you updated.

    Best regards,
