    What Will Banning Of Trophy Hunting Result In?

    Great video that visually shows ...with emotion....why hunting is so important to rural communities. Now, if we could get everyone to watch.

    CBL Debate Over, CBL Loses

    I'm afraid too that it is the lions that will pay the real price. Such a complicated and complex issue.

    Trophy Hunting Undermines Conservation, Right? Wrong

    Thanks so much for sharing this. It has some great stats I can use for a talk I am doing at the Serengeti Park Zoom next week (via Zoom). I'm afraid that I'm stepping into the lions den. I'm not sure they knew the message in my book before inviting me. Sue

    Big Elephant Reportedly Taken in Tanzania

    You have a valid point. We put all of our faith in the PH's and outfitters. It is conceivable that the hunters didn't know.

    @Scott CWO Those are definitely valid points. There are no easy solutions that is for sure. Sue

    Big Elephant Reportedly Taken in Tanzania

    I understand your point @Wishfulthinker580. Please see the excerpts from APHA and Danny McCallun for their opinion on this issue that I posted replying to @Scott CWO . Thanks so much for voicing your opinion. This is such a touchy and controversial subject....but it has huge implications for the...

    Big Elephant Reportedly Taken in Tanzania

    Scott, I do agree with you. They shouldn't be habituating elephants to people but how do you stop in in national parks where I'm assuming it just comes naturally? Either way, the hunting of these big tuskers is detrimental to the hunting industry. It may not be fair but it is the reality of the...

    Big Elephant Reportedly Taken in Tanzania

    Regarding this big tusker, a person (who shall remain anonymous but DOES support well managed hunting) contacted me to set the record straight regarding this big tusker. The elephants that wonder into Tanzania from Amboseli National Park are habituated to humans. Hunters can literally drive up...

    Hello from Nevada

    Hello from rural Idaho. I am so excited to hear you are going to Africa for the first time. Have you heard the quote by Richard Mullen. "“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa - for he has so much to look forward to." Well, I can relate! There is nothing like the first...

    Big Elephant Reportedly Taken in Tanzania

    This was already being circulated on Instagram with the normal comments to go with it...trashing hunters. Honestly, it made me sick to my stomach. Not because it was a bad hunt...but because I knew the antis would use this like another Cecil. I was relieved when it went almost a week before...

    Thanks for the info Mark. Yes, we order a lot of stuff from Amazon too, especially with the free shipping which is a HUGE saver. I hate using Amazon so much (I'd rather use smaller retailers) but when you live an hour away from everything, it is just easier. You are lucky that you have a sister...

    Sue Tidwell's book on audio

    @flatwater bill, your comment made me laugh out loud. I'm with you. I LOVE audiobooks these days. It allows me to "read" so many more books because I can do it while walking, cleaning, driving, etc. Unfortunately, many of the African books I want to read aren't in audio. Therefore, that stack...

    Sue Tidwell's book on audio

    @MarkB I'm so glad to hear that you loved the book...and that you sent a copy to your sister. That is exactly what I hoped hunters would do (share it with others). YES, the shipping out of the country is HORRIBLE. Luckily, it's not too bad in the States using "media" mail...and on Amazon, it is...

    Thanks for the feedback @Milo. I did worry that some people would not enjoy the sounds of the animals....but I was trying to make people feel like they were there on safari with me...especially people who have never been to Africa. I tried not to overdo it, but maybe I still did. Some people do...

    YAY, thank you so much @Firebird! I appreciate the awesome picture with the book....and for resubmitting the review to Amazon. They are terrible about reviews...and (in my opinion) look for any reason to deny them. It means so much to me that you took the time to edit the picture and resubmit...

    Thank you so much @Dewald. I've read some of the books on the list but many I have missed. I just listened to West with the Night and LOVED it! The scene about the lion encounter with the Morani is one of the best I've ever far. I don't speak Afrikaans or German so those would be off...

    Thank you @Dewald. I'm piggybacking off this list you made for @Redheadkentuckian. Do you have them listed randomly...or in the order you enjoyed them? One thing for sure: my book list just grew BIG TIME! Thanks again. Sue

    Awesome! Hoopla is in audio. Correct? I have the audiobook in a distributor service but honestly I don't know exactly how it all works. LOL. I hope you like the animal sounds. Happy listening! Sue

    Hello, I also loved White Hunters and learned so much from it. Even though some people say that Peter Capstick embellished a lot, I still loved his book Death in the Long Grass. I also loved Ruark's Horn of the Hunter. Here are a few other ones that aren't necessarily all hunting but they offer...
