    I am a New Zealander living in Zambia for last 3 years just found this site. Very much like NZ hunt n fish forum. Anyway I Deerstalk back in NZ and want to start hunting Zambia and around Africa mainly for meat and odd trophy. So I are open to any ideas and suggestions as all new to this way of hunting as at home we have access to public land. Thank you.:)

    Welcome to AH.

    Have you approached the local tribes to see if they have permits where they receive the meat and you obtain the horns - skull and hide?

    Not Familiar with Zambia - however, have you tried to find a private land holder (s) to see if you could cull some of there herd.

    Look at the forum and try and see what you could do in Botswana or Zimbabwe. I am not sure you will be able to take the meat.

    Welcome to AH..

    1.5 hours and you get answer. Awesome.

    Have to agree. Tough to go from a place large enough with small populations where you can run around freely.

    Based in Kafue. I work a 6 week on 3 week roster out of Eygpt as a underground mine foreman. So have a lot of time to move around on days off.

    Welcome Glad to have you here on AH.
    I once went down into a mine 1 mile underground, saw the end and said- "been there done that and got out!
    I've lived through too many large earthquakes in California USA to want to be underground :)

    Welcome to AH zamkiwi! wish I could find a job where I would be living in Africa! No maybe not I would hunt so much I would have the USA fish and wildlife putting all african game on the endangered species List. :laughing:

    That is a very true comment, so many animals so little time, My wife laughs everytime we have been on a game drive and people are snapping photo,s and am looking at everything with horns thinking ( I wonder what that back leg or back steaks would taste like):p

    Dear Zamkiwi
    Welcome to this forum.
    Enjoy the planning process of possible hunts in Africa. Why not considering Namibia?
    Let us hear your questions.
    Namibian greetings from Africa.
