    Hi folks
    I thought I would share this with those of you who are un aware of the status on the following species...

    After a Lengthy conversation with our Limpopo based Nature conservation department, this is what I was told:
    Honey badger in Limpopo will not be issued (a hunting permit), and only 1 Brown hyena tag/permit per outfitter will be given per season, this will go for Civet as well

    Those of you (non us based) who would like to hunt the latter in Limpopo should make this clear to your outfitter well in advance to avoid dissapointment..

    Just thought I would give everyone(All the "critter" hunters out there) a heads up

    My best always.

    I am certain that it is based on vast volumes of extensive field studies. Just like all wildlife management decisions around the world. :banghead:

    I find it interesting from the stand point that wildlife conservation is not being used properly. There has to a sustainable population of honey badgers, but they are not issuing permits...so this "sucks"! Give limited permits at least.

    I do not know what their current way of thinking or lack of thinking is. I know the argument before was that Honey Badger has a Cites 1 listing or some extreme listing in Botswana and the Honey Badgers can cross the Limpopo and therefore we should have the same listing on them.

    It is a pity that the leopards of which Zimbabwe has a hundreds of permits probably all cross from South Africa into Zimbabwe that is why they get all the permits and we dont !!!!!!!

    Richard why I posted I had a conversation with another LHLF INDIVIDUAL this afternoon, I have no problem posting it in public..:)

    Kobus Pienaar as well as Gerard De Beer shared this info with my office this morning Uncle Ronnie confirmed... I believe it comes directly from somwhere higher than what they are as you would probably agree... :)

    Please keep me posted on this as well.

    My best always

    As per Ronnie Hayward at today's meeting ..... One ( 1) Brown Hyena, one ( 1) Serval , one ( 1) Civet , one ( 1) Honey Badger , one (1) African Wildcat per Landowner or property ......


    This is definitely good news .... I have no problems with limitations on properties . No limitations per Outfitter or exclusions !!!:rockon:

    All above can still be applied for and hunted !!!!

    That sounds more reasonable, still they should be set up for size of the property.

    I got confirmation both Honey badger and Brown Hyena applications approved . I gave in 2 honey badger applications . I used 2 outfitters , my wife and I for safety sake . I believe the restriction is per property and not per outfitter !!:rockon:
