    I thought I'd look into a request for information on Zambia and see if I could find an answer.

    Went to the ZAWA site and found the site a little confused.

    I was shocked by one of the images on the site.

    ZAWA - Zambia Wildlife Authority


    Can you ID the newest African Antelope Species?

    So much corruption going that someone doesn't recognize the antelope from NA on the website?

    What the hell were they thinking??
    :doh2:

    I can see a headline coming already,

    .... New species discovered in Luangwa, thought to have migrated from North America to Luangwa seeking refuge from hunters worldwide... ban on cat hunting increases population of lions... culling of lions essential to protect new species...


    On the other hand, I wonder if it will be on residents quota next year ;)

    If anyone heard the ministers speach in Vegas at the SCI show then you will clearly hear her say that should scientific research and game counts not take place in Zambia then there would be no "lions, Leopards and Tigers" to talk about!! Nope i'm not shitting you, its on you tube for anyone that's interested.

    If you think that was bad, i just returned from a safari in petauke west at Munyamadzi Game Ranch Luangwa. Lovely property with plenty game and the Ph was telling me of an incident at ZAWA where he applied for quota and instead of giving him the 3 roan that he had asked for they wrote a letter to him saying they would not give him the roan but gave him 3 sable instead!! Everybody in Zambia knows that there have never been any sable in Luangwa Valley and are only found in Kafue. When he confronted them about the issue they were adamant there was sable there and said that he should take it or leave it! What a farce!

    No more tiger's for sale... damn, pity about that.

    Were you with Thor at Munyamadzi?
    It is a nice place that, hoping to take a trip down there sometime next year once things here are all settled.

    hi pete, thats right there was two of us, i'm the guy with the beard. It was really hard hunting, we walked close to 15kms everyday in 40 degree plus heat. We both shot a lovely bulls. Its hard hunting that type of terrain and i last hunted that area back in 2001 when it was almost depleted. It is nice to have the opportunity to go back there and see what a lovely job Thor has done there and have the privelege to hunt successfully once again. That 600 was really a canon on the buffalo. I have never seen anything die so quick. My brother is a big double rifle fan and he owns quite a few in range of calibres. He likes getting right up close and using the iron sights and Thor did a lovely job and managed to get us close on a number of occasions. All in all taking 2 buffalo in six days in an upcoming game ranch is difficult, but we were a good team who managed to fulfill our ambitions.

    I think that's a good idea... :p

    maybe a bit of cross breeding on the side to see what happens?

    The biggest mistake anyone can make , when dealing with Africa on any issue what so ever , is to bank on common sense.

    It appears the phrase "Zambia Wildlife Authority" has become an oxymoron.

    ZAWA seems to have 'poached' that animal picture from the Jarret Rifles website.
