    Paul,

    I hate to sound like a buzz-kill, but could you post more details on this hunt? Dates, outfitter, trophy exportation (CITES requirements), etc. Also, unless I've completely missed it, hasn't Leopard hunting, regardless of method, in Namibia been suspended through 2010? If I am mistaken on this, please correct me. Is this a PAC hunt?

    pinotguy to answer your question, here is the official statement from Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) to the Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) regarding Leopard and Cheetah Trophy hunting in 2010. Still no word as to when the Moratorium will be lifted, we just know that it has been extended beyond February 2010. Of course there are rumors that they will announce the lift of the moratorium by the end of January 2010. Along with these rumors, people are saying that they will be reopening Leopard hunting however not Leopard hunting with dogs. Rumors are unreliable and purely speculative...


    Dear NAPHA,

    Kindly be informed that the Ministry of Environment and Tourism will extend the moratorium on the hunting of cheetah and leopards beyond February 2010. The moratorium will only be withdrawn once the new regulations have been gazetted. We are uncertain as to when that will be, but the Ministry of Justice is already working on the regulations.

    Warm regards,

    I just spoke with the CEO of NAPHA at the Dallas Safari Club show and it is not expected to re-open for Leopard or Cheetah until after the 2010 season. They are also saying that hunting with dogs will be banned in the future.

    Your best bet for a Leopard is Zimbabwe. And yes it is safe to hunt in Zimbabwe.
