From where? Sable and Roan are quite a recent introduction.
Were these stock originally imported from Zambia?
Quite right and I did assume. Jaco I am convinced that if this jerk worked for you that you would have fired his ass. If you are travelling...
Jaco there are some very fine PHs out there and many who are famous. BUT confirm you can get your license having attended a simple course? That...
Beauty and the beast. My first foray into the Kafue Flats for a couple of years. The madam did very well indeed.
Apologies billc and considering the high standards that Namibia sets I simply presumed this jerk to be from across the border?
To become a PH in RSA is easier than passing your driving test.
A truly free range Sable in Zambia is very expensive indeed and the prices are going up. South Africa maybe out breeding it's market.
So who is the real deal and who is the impostor?
Absolutely sir. Blundering around in the dark looking for a cat is always unnerving for a PH and he must have been relieved that you made that call.
In Zambia we are bound by a code of conduct and ethical hunting standards.
At least you are honest. Good luck on your next attempt.
Any PH that recommends a .22 for a cat should be avoided. To leave a valuable trophy over night and possibly wounded is another no no in my book.
Good report and some fine trophies. Personally I would move on and seek a better calibre of PH in your quest for Leopard.
Never seen that one before? Probably Namibia or Bots where problem Lions were allowed to be hunted. What facebook page does this come from?
And now we have our cats back on quota. Me with the late John Rex with a good Kafue Lion.
Roan in open savannah are a bitch. Very big crocs are also wise. My most physical hunts have been for Buffalo where they are scarce and harassed.
Bruce if I have a cancellation then I might have a place for you on a group hunt in the Luangwa valley.
Hunting the Kafue Flats. Getting close having crawled on our bellies. The front Lechwe was in excess of 30 inches. The lad on the sticks is a US...
Good attitude mate.
Send me an email and I will send you a high resolution image of that.
Chaps the Luangwa has always had a huge concentration of Leopard and the prime valley areas are well protected by both the Government and...
Use of electronic equipment is illegal in Zambia nor do you need it.
I have seen some big leopard come out of this country and the trick is to carefully chose your outfitter and PH. Good luck by the way.
Are you still looking for a location and outfitter? I might have something.
What with Zambia recently lifting the cat ban this destination must rank along side the best of Zimbabwe and a couple of areas in Mozambique as...
Restricted quotas of Leopard have been issued for this hunting season and Lion for 2016. Here there be monsters.
Proper safari that.
Your first hunt should be in remote dangerous game country on the banks of a famous river. Did I mention Zambia?
Guess I have been lucky or can afford to be choosy. When you hunt vast open concessions where animals are free ranging then there are absolutely...
Disagree with all of that. I entertain lengthy correspondence with all my clients and the gentlemen and ladies that I have dealt with have never...
What a load of bollocks and as a PH you have every right to put down a suffering animal and this is dictated in our Code Of Conduct and if this...
Like 'when I' purchase the first round of beer?
Women as Professional hunters? - My only concern in rural Africa is that men do not respect women and here you may experience problems. Being a PH...
In Norse mythology, Thor (/θɔr/; from Old Norse Þórr) is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength,...
And let us not forget some of the more common species.
What about this mate? PH Richard Bell Cross with the current world record taken the other side of the river from us.
Absolutely agree and your safari should not be a frantic. Good hunting and I very much look forward to a report. August is a prime month and the...
You may never go back to Zim once you have experienced Zambia. If I could afford to hunt then I would be exploring and hunting buffalo with...
Whilst Zambia has just witnessed a two year ban on Government concessions during the interim there has been some excellent hunting that was had on...
Not so much price but location,location. Zambia is another brilliant option and there are a good deals being advertised on a number of forums.
I would say the attraction of hunting other countries such as Zambia for buff is firstly there are no restrictions and secondly you get to hunt a...
And some recent heavy fellows from my Kafue block in Zambia. What they lack in width they make up in mass.
Another brute but broken on one side
An exceptional Reedbuck taken at Royal Kafue Zambia
I might have called that 60 .
Tokkie, You obviously know your stuff and as you have stated a 60 inch Kudu is in a league of its own. Mannlicher has posted two Kudu photos and...
I maybe wrong and it might go 50.
