    Thanks Sylvia,
    I just love dogs espically the working variety. Cooling down in the mud is my favorite pic.
    When i get my fill of plains game hunting Lepoard with hounds is definately on the list.

    Keep in mind when planning you hunts for hunting Leopard and cheetah with hounds that Namibia currently has a moritorium on hunting Leopard and cheetah totally. It is also expected that when they do lift the moritorium that hunting with dogs will be banned totally.

    The sad thing is that all Namibian outfitters know this fact yet some are still out marketing the hunts in Dallas, Houston and Reno.

    Don't look for Leopard and Cheetah to open for 2010.

    Another thing to watch out for is the Zimbabwean's or South African's who offer hunts in Namibia. They are not licensed to hunt in Namibia. They can not be licensed unless they are Namibia citizens. If you hunt with a outfitter or PH that is not licensed and you get caught you risk losing any trophies that you shoot as well being reported to SCI. The Namibian Professional Hunters Association has well as the government ministries have taken a hard stance on this. There are already some investigations in process regarding illegal hunts taking place.

    Another thing when hunting Leopard or Cheetah in Namibia make sure that your outfitter has taken out a license to hunt that species prior to the hunt.

    Hi Wildcat, I hope you dont smell like a cat or my hounds will be all over you if you leave a trail anywhere in my neck of the woods.Since we can't hunt leopard in Namibia with our hounds for now anyway we are back to our home territory and running our hounds on what they were always used to hunting "CARACAL ". How long do you want to spend trailing these cats ? This is about all I do, 5 - 6 days a week.Makes no difference to me if you and your buddies want to join us.I have two teams of hounds and handlers.You can watch hounds and listen to hound music all you want and take some caracal trophies as momento's of your experience. Contact me or look at my add in the " Great hunting deals " on this site. Yours sincerely, Roy Sparks.

    Mr. Wagner sir, you are wrong.Not all South African's hunting or offering hunts in Namibia are doing so illegally !!Some of us have registered safari companies in Namibia ourselves.A South African can have a company in Namibia and be 100% shareholder.He can then employ a Namibian registered PH to work for him. A South African can also become a partner in a Namibian company.He is then totally within his rights to advertise and promote his business.Your's faithfully, Roy Sparks.
