    Thumbs down BOTSWANA: Looks like they are locking us out in 2014

    From SCI

    "As was confirmed by His Excellency the President in his recent State of the Nation Address, Government has decided to indefinitely suspend commercial hunting of wildlife in public or Controlled Hunting Areas as from the 1st of January 2014. This comes as a realization that the shooting of wild game purely for sport and trophies is no longer seen to be compatible with either our national commitment to conserve and preserve local fauna or the long term growth of the local tourism industry." SCI received this official statement from Botswana's Embassy in Washington, D.C. SCI will continue to work with the Botswana government and other non-government organizations to reverse this policy, and return Botswana to sustainable-use wildlife management and rural economic development.

    Much to the delight however of other surrounding countries who will continue to allow hunting and will reap what were once Botswana hunting dollars.
