    Hello, I was wondering if white rhinos are still being hunted? I've seen green hunts being conducted but haven't heard of a real hunt recently. If so, in what countries and are there CITES to export them?

    This what you want the 416 Rigby for?

    You have been to the CITES website and you can see where there is Export quota on the site.

    Just be sure to hunt males that are beyond their breeding capacity... RSA has plenty of these!

    Wish they would life the restriction on bows for these guys. I am shooting 116 Ft-Lbos of kinetic energy now, but my body will only do that for so long. It would suck if they don't life the restriction until after I cannot muster the strength to take them down.

    At this moment in history, rhinos (black and white) are still huntable. No question about it.
    Namibia and South Africa.

    There is so many aspects sorunding the rhino hunt:
    they are valuable, they are not many, they are prime target for poachers, they are farmers good investement, the antipoaching organisation to keep and finance, they are always high profile animals (for politicians, for game departments, for hunters, non-hunters, antihunters, poachers, etc), there is so much things at stake.
    So each point brings more reason to keep everything under control. (read: "fences")

    There are two questions that comes to my mind, where more knoledgable might answer:

    1) Are there any more trully free roaming - out of fence - rhino hunting?

    2) Is there any chance for rhino hunts to be open in other subsaharan African countries?
    Do their local efforts in coservation bring hope to get the numbers to huntable levels? Are there positive trends in any other country?

    Population increasing in RSA and Namibia. All rhinos are owned by the government in Namibia although many are on private land. I don’t know the specifics of how it all works financially. I do know the only affordable rhinos will be private land hunts in RSA. The rhinos that are free ranging so to speak are very few and will cost you six figures plus.
