    Default 8 Reasons Hunting Africa Ain't What it Used to Be

    Hey fellows, I just ran across this article written by Craig Boddington and thought it may be worth sharing with you all. I have only had the time to read his first couple of "reasons" but it looked to me like his usual no-nonsense, call it like I see it style that I have come to appreciate through the years. One thing for sure about the Colonel is that with over 50 African Safaris under his belt, he has truly been there & done that.

    here's the link, hope ya enjoy:

    Every year thing change, you just have to look at pheasant hunting in South Dakota as an example...The 50 and 60 were a hay day in birds and limits...then it went down to only a few weeks and a bird or 2 limit...

    No difference in the political landscape changes so does the country...more people less land for see the same near big cities in the USA where land development is present...

    So, what s new, the world changes.

    Compare Boddigton s experience with that of James Mellon, go back to Teddy Roosevelt, John Hunter, John "Pondoro" Taylor or Robert Foran.

    Hunting around 1900 was nothing like today, however, we can t go back. And it will only get worse, less open spaces, more regulations, more ranch hunting.

    Darwin - was right. This applies to animals and humans as well.

    It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.

    In the struggle for survival, the fittest win out at the expense of their rivals because they succeed in adapting themselves best to their environment.
    When I am not hunting, I am thinking about hunting....I think I'll go hunting.

    The Cape Buffalo is considered by some to be the most dangerous of all of the Big Five in the world. While he seems docile enough when viewed undisturbed in the herd, when agitated or wounded this bovine can be extremely aggressive, vindictive, and cunning. Found all over southern Africa in varying sized herds, the Buffalo can weigh up to 1800 pounds. He is primarily a grazer but an occasional browser who must drink every day.
