    Gourmet Table Fare Or Just Quality Meals, WHat To Expect?

    I don't think anywhere you go you will have an issue of the food being horrible. But obviously were you go and hunt with will make the difference. Although the best is the wild game you shot grilled over the fire each night.

    Glasses vs. Contacts

    Wear whichever one you usually wear each day and hunt in. if you always wear your contacts or glasses hunting than stick with it, no need to throw your shooting and comfort off. Just keep spare contacts with you while out if you go that route.

    Brown Bear Hunt Cancellation Price

    Is it the total of 7 bears per person or for both hunters? Either way that's quite the offer for an Alaskan bear hunt!

    Gator Hunting Who's done it? Need advice

    What do most people do taxidermy wise? Unless you shoot a small gator most people don't have room for a full size gator. I'd think head mount is a good way to go but who do you go to for the making of belts, wallets, etc with the rest of the skin?

    Lion mount help

    I agree that the look of jumping to nothing doesn't fit to me. Add another animal to it and its great though. I think the original idea photo is great with a snarling/slightly opened look would be awesome. So it shows the teeth and the aggression I think your looking for. I think the mouth in...

    Zimbabwe Goverment Lists 23 White-Owned Farms For Seizure

    The government removed the white farmers who were educated and knew how to run a commercial agriculture farm and replaced them with uneducated black citizens. With removing all of the knowledgeable farmers the new ones have no one to learn from. I'm guessing Zimbabwe doesn't have schooling for...

    Hybrid Buffalo?

    It has the color of Afrikaner or N'Dama cattle. To me it doesn't look much like an Asian buffalo as the asian buffalo has a dark color similar to Cape Buffalo and the horns are angled back more without the curl like the cape buffalo. If it was a mix of the two I don't think it would give the...

    What are your thoughts on culling?

    I don't see the issue. As long as the price is fair. A lot of times on cull hunts you can take trophy animals as well, no one wants to be cull hunting and find the legendary 65in+ kudu and have to pass. Its just normal hunting to maintain proper animal populations.

    Botswana bans sports hunters after Cecil killing

    The greenies really don't understand much besides emotions. They say hunters brutally kill animals but any death an animal experiences in the wild is much much worse as death from old age is basically unheard of. Its either starvation, disease, or predators. Which all are prolonged and painful...

    He does contradict himself. The only hunting allowed is private properties yet he says they will continue on game farms, aka private property? It may not be anything new but a publicity stunt.

    Botswana bans sports hunters after Cecil killing

    I believe last year was the last for public land hunting and this is ending the private property hunts. Probably need a Ph/outfitter in Botswana to clarify all of this.

    Zimbabwe Parks " New Ruling"

    That was my first thought. Makes the anti's happy and more money in their pockets. Their will probably be plenty of paperwork fee's. I can deal with this, I just hope they don't pull an even more stupid move like Botswana.

    Botswana bans sports hunters after Cecil killing

    What a shame. We've lost Botswana and Zimbabwe is not looking good either. Where are the hunting companies P.R. firms trying to combat this onslaught from anti-hunters? I hope Botswana doesn't go down the tubes like Kenya did.

    Zimbabwe Parks " New Ruling"

    This could screw up some hunts but everything they said was stopped could still be done with written permission. Its probably just being done to make the sheep happy until they forget about this in a couple weeks.

    PETA on hunting dogs

    I found this on PETA's website and couldn't believe this garbage.

    Death of Zimbabwe’s Best-Loved Lion Ignites Debate on Sport Hunting

    Quote for Yahoo story on the pros/cons of legal trophy hunting in Africa

    Bill, I'm sure you can find many knowledgable individuals on here who would be happy to answer your questions. The problem is if their name will be held anonymous. Those who we refer to as anti's are known to make threats and be very harassing.

    Is this really hunting?

    I do think we all need to be sure we aren't being too quick to condemn the outfitter or hunters. I do feel the use of aircraft in this scenario was wrong and I hope the outfitter/hunters understand where our criticism is coming from and can reflect. Besides the one usage of aircraft most of...

    Is this really hunting?

    To me this isn't hunting. We need to judge other hunts/hunters by two criteria, ethics and legality. I don't know if this hunt was legal or not. But what I do know is this is ethically wrong. If a hunt is legal but is morally and ethically wrong then we should not be supportive of it. I like...
