    I ran across a book reviewed in Sports Afield that will be necessary reading for you.

    It is called "Game Changer:Animal Rights and the Fate of Africa's Wildlife." It touches on many things we have talked about in this thread. Appears to focus on Kenya's non-hunting policy and compares it to Tanzania, among other places.

    Furthermore, I think it will show the dark side of some Animal Rights NGO's.

    Hi!

    Thanks for the links and suggestions as always. Breaker Morant I've ordered that book; it looks like it could be very useful.

    And Wolverine67 thanks - the link you sent has an email address for conservation force that I could use.

    For the next few days I will (like many of you I'm sure) be off for Christmas so I'm sorry if I don't respond to any posts very quickly over the next two weeks. Hope you all have a good festive season.

    Meera

    By now I have almost finished this book, and I can only say that its an eye opener. Not only to the mindless animal rights and antihunter, but it also point out some facts wich we as hunters should reflect upon among other things when we choose an outfitter for our next hunt. And it enlightened my wiew upon the complexity between wild game and the rural Africa.

    Highly recommended!

    Hello everyone!

    I hope that you've all had an excellent Christmas and new years. I've stockpiled a huge amount of books and articles thanks to your recommendations and my aim for the next couple of weeks is to read them all (though it will probably take much longer than a couple of weeks!)

    Keep them coming though! I shall be in touch in due course regarding the survey, I have a couple of preliminary tasks to do first so it will be a while.

    Best wishes

    Meera

    Meera,

    As a first time hunter to South Africa (2013, and according to my 13 year old daughter, it will not be my only time), but a lifetime hunter your topic sounds very interesting. I know there are a lot of strong feeling on both sides of the fence (Hunting and Anti), but like others here, I feel you need to know both sides of the story to make better informed conclusions. With that, I am willing to take part in your research if needed. You can PM me if you would like.
