Anyone has pictures of trophy lions of Botswana? A friend of mine was telling me that nowadays no Kalahari lions are really wild but I mentioned to him that the lion hunting in Botswana was very good, and the kalahari produced fine trophies, but I don´t seem to find any picture of them, either blond or black maned lions, the pictures I see are from okavango or south african lions.

Why would someone claim that Kalahari lions are not really wild?

Because of the lion hunting done in south africa, many are advertised as kalahari lions, or claimed to be from there.

Somebody is confused....Not only has Botswana got the biggest lions in body weight and manes, Botswana was the first lions that started preying on Elephants.....

Two separate prides of lions in the Okavango delta, Duba plains to be more precise, hunt buffalo exclusively, nothing else, these Okavango lions have much larger and more muscular front quarters as they often hunt these buffalo in the water.....

The Okavango is in Botswana by the way..

Gee, if it wasn’t for the explosion of people I’d love to have seen where that went in a few 10’s of thousands of years.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
