    Thanks! I'm writing mostly, especially on tracking but also a lot of other stuff. I originally trained as a PH in Zim and have spent 22+ years in wildlife and forestry management. I love writing about it and would greatly appreciate any feedback whether positive or negative.

    Fantastic. I am in the strange situation of being a Zambian citizen yet hardly know anyone in the hunting industry here.

    I am writing course material for PHs and PGs in Zim including ethics, tracking, law, approaches on dangerous game, etc. yet am not even a part of the system in Zam.

    I am keen to get involved in Zam with a view to writing on it.
