    That is a nice sable. When you mentioned ranching, is that ranching in Zambia with cattle of game?

    Welcome to AH...We have a some what civil group...

    We will be looking forward to your photos...and stories...

    How big of spread do you operate?

    Do you use a helicopter to bring in the animals to be sold? With the different herds you have do you round-up all of one species at one time or do you select small groups?

    Do you use a computer format to track your herd sires and dams? to track the ones you want to sell? and to control the genetics you want to pass on and produce?

    Or do you raise game animals to maturity and then sell your excess to other game ranches?

    hi James
    our reserve is 3500 hectares - with only 12 km of game fence and 16 km of kafue river frontage for our borders. I do my own caputure - this one is only 3 sable so I will dart them individually
    I am in the process of gathering all data on all game and from this will set our quotas for hunting and live sales. we will only be conducting 2 hunts this season and aim to keep our reserve in a pristine state -only taking off mature trophy animals each season - prefering one hunter to come in and take several species over a week or longer period.
    As for the breeding we have 6 herds of sable (our main focus) and these are free range. I will be doing some genetic research for future breeding but they originated from 4 different captures when they were introduced to the reserve a number of years ago.
    have a good weekend!
