    Cliffy... great topic and something us Outfitters need to know and address from as broad a perspective as possible. I will try make it to the seminar. "What's stopping you?" is definitely something I want to know about - I am personally very keen to know Tanzania-specific reasons that may be a...

    Spike T, they confiscated it at customs, but I know where to get more - so do you... lets plan a party in some better weather :) Staying hydrated is not an issue, staying warm is more necessary and lager is not going to cut it - we need some fire-water in this joint! I thought Texas is meant...

    James, these are the facts we need to highlight... as 'unbelievable' as it may sound, what appears logical to you and me, may be a void to many. The politicians are not going to do the work required to establish the full impact of an industry and will continue to value it through direct value...

    Second Wind, after reading this reply I am beginning to think you are suggesting I AM in support of a possible hunting ban? I would like to make it very clear that I am in FULL SUPPORT of a hunting policy and an advocate to its preservation and sustainability for generations to come. My...

    What I am awkwardly trying to say to all of Africa is this: "I can take you to Silicon Valley or Austin, Texas and show you the future.....You can walk me out on the Serengeti and show me the past." In our rapidly changing World, there is abundant and most probably equal value in both. In a...

    For those who have been following developments and climate of the Tourist Hunting Industry in Tanzania, there are some new indications of a looming cloud over the need for a Tourist Hunting Industry. I would like to express my serious concerns over the current turbulence and superficial...

    James, thanks for the encouragement and glad you will be heading back out this way. The truth of the matter is many "open areas" and "game controlled areas" will fall to the pressure of encroachment. In my Kilombero area, the disaster is complete and it will never return to anything close to...

    No doubt it is not going to be easy... some may fail and some areas may suffer as a result. An opportunity has been presented and those who are serious about years of hard work, sacrifice and effort to get to where we are, need to abandon the politics and get to working for the industry. It...

    I agree with you on sympathizing with some, but we are required by policy to invest and care for areas entrusted to us, irrelevant of ownership status. We should not feel regret or at loss for doing the right thing for the wildlife and its habitat. It is merely a lease, but comes with criteria...

    Thank you all for the warm welcome back into the fold... Things will work out. I am born into this business and am too connected and passionate about the industry to turn away or let anything divert me otherwise.

    CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC: Hunt Report From a 31 Years Old French Hunter

    Lions in Camps (Is Rehabilitation Possible)

    Roaming Africa, i think i get where you are coming from and have also considered such a project. In my research and feasibility efforts, there are two aspects that made me stop the pursuit; land & funds. Introducing them into the wild (of which we have a lot in Tanzania) is not very feasible...

    Lions in Camps (Is Rehabilitation Possible)

    There are many factors to the re-introduction of lions into the wild... at what stage of their development, what type of habitat, proximity to human activity etc. But it is possible to re-introduce a lion into the wild! It is hard work though and does not always succeed. Very time and fund...

    Bringing Back Meat

    enysse, what you experienced is really sad! The people who deprived you of tasting your animals need to be kicked hard in parts that hurt! To me that is just not acceptable and you had the right to bring the roof down! Firstly you have a right to the meat on an animal you shot, secondly it is...

    Biggest Lion in Africa

    Jerome... as beautiful as that specimen is, to me, it is not a LION! That is a PET! For that amount of money, one could have a hunt of a lifetime for a more worthy lion, plus three buffalo, leopard, hippo, crocodile and numerous others all inclusive in a 28 Day Hunt that would blow your mind...

    Best Tasting African Animal

    Monish, it is some of the best meat i have had - deep red, with a unique taste that suggests you do not need to add much salt and very tender for such a muscular animal. But i recommend the rump as i have tried other cuts and do not think they are as good. Leopard i will eat but do not prefer...

    Best Tasting African Animal

    Thomas... there are two animals that will never come close to my taste buds and that is hyena and baboon! You go right ahead and try a hyena if you want, but I doubt there will be any positive reports to make. The animals has a stink that would put a skunk to shame and am sure that stench...

    Best Tasting African Animal

    Eland is awesome - but i can tell you from personal experience that some of the best tasting meat is not from the best looking animal - i think cane rat and porcupine are some of the most tender and delicious cuts out there. For me, Eland is the best, but they are not an easy to get animal and...
