    Curious to see what action people are taking for the Coronavirus

    Yes. All hunting, fishing, tramping, swimming, boating or any activity that could require search and rescue is banned until 22 April at the earliest. Will mean there will not be any hunting in the roar this year for deer. Duck shooting also starts in May so hopefully it is over by then.

    Captive Lions For Sale At Safari Club International

    Putting aside people's feelings on captive-bred lion hunting, the main question that needs to be asked is were the exhibitors trying to sell these hunts at the convention? If you watch the video carefully you will see there are a larger number of cuts and questions to try to get the exhibitors...

    The spiral slam and a buffalo on one hunt? What is a spiral slam?

    Here is one list of all the spiral-horned antelopes of Africa. This gives 26 species, 25 of which are huntable in the wild (although the Kenya bongo can be hunted in Texas). I remember reading that in 2015 Rick Warren (owner of the Warren Wildlife Gallery) was the 6th person to hunt all 25 in...

    Record Rhino for Sale

    From Jens Ulrik Hogh on facebook Rhino auction update. The auction is over. Non-hunters showed no interest in buying this problem animal whatsoever. The bull will, therefore, be hunted in the near future and the money from the sale will be reinvested in nature conservation. Once again the...

    Gordon Ramsay sparks outrage by shooting a goat on his new Uncharted TV show

    I wondered the same thing when I first saw the video. A shot like that with no rest and a reasonable distance as well would be difficult for someone who does not hunt often.

    Huntress interview on giraffe scandal and CBS documentary

    I watched the shorter 24-minute version and it was actually not that bad. Remember, this video is not from a hunting organization trying to make hunting look good. I did not like how they kept going back to the person from HSI like she is some expert on conservation in africa.

    A nice kudu and zebra. I have always thought the mountain zebra is much prettier than the Burchells, and the kudu is a nice one also. What an end to an awesome safari.

    Zambian Hippo Cull Program Cancelled

    It is always a pity when governments listen to the anti's, not facts. I can understand your relief at this finally being over though, as no one likes it when their family is threatened. I have seen anti-hunting groups celebrating and sharing this thread over facebook.

    Trophy Hunting May Drive Extinctions, Due to Climate Change

    This article was from November 2017 so is a bit old. Although the author buts a slightly negative twist on trophy hunting, all the professors/researchers seem to support it. Most hunters do only target the older males, which has been demonstrated on here multiple times.

    Hollywood PR Firm Will NOT Defend Botswana’s Proposal to Allow Elephant Hunting

    Canadian High Schoolers On Fat-tire Bikes Hunted A 1,500-pound Bison During A Field Trip

    Great way to teach the students how to ethically hunt and process all the meat afterward. They do something similar in rural schools in NZ where students get taken on field trips and get taught how to trap, kill, and skin possums. Unfortunately, the anti's do not see it that way. There was a...
