    Hello Dolf,
    So what the correct status?
    Is all hunting in Botswana shut down?
    thanks

    Hi Charles.

    No. there is still hunting allowed. Just not in the government hunting areas. One can only hunt on a registered game farm.

    i just came back from an eland and gemsbok hunt.

    No outfitter. Did it all myself and a couple of duddies. We looked around for what there was to be had, booked into the game farm and the rest was history. Just involved a 6hr drive to get there.

    Welcome sir! I do hope you will share some pictures. So you just went to a game ranch and asked what was available and at what price ? So did the ranch owner then take you into the property to hunt?

    Since i am born and raised here (in Bots) and the field of work i am in. That is basically it i booked for a hunting slot and went there. Shot my quoter and had a blast of a time.
    It is not all that big a mission.
