    In the wake of this latest news, by accident I saw yesterday an article in The Sun magazine, blasting against UK hunters hunting zebras -
    - with one of our sponsors here.
    I did inform their rep on the forum, on this point, and I hope the outfitter will give a strong answer. (they were asking for comments from outfitter).

    The Sun, BBC, Guardian, telegraph.... I do not remember ever reading any hunting supportive article. It is very strange how they are negatively biased, I wonder where does it come from. And certainly it is not from long and rich British history.

    When it became apparent that African hunting outfitters would be attending the show to sell hunts, the antis, social media idiots and those who don't like people hunting protested, signed petitions etc and the host venue of the show stopped African outfitters from attending.
    This is the bullshit we have to contend with here.

    This total stupidity is only killing the real and only wildlife left in Africa, with current population boom and politicians sitting in their chairs and keeping the masses happy, it won't be long before the vast areas in Africa are overgrazed overun and the only roaring lion would be heard in a small Zoo that managed to keep their doors open.

    Blues Brother after two consecutive unsuccessful Leopard hunts in Namibia I'm going to take a break and try for Cape Buffalo next.
    I took my wife this year and hunting side by side with her for leopard baits was the best hunt of my life even without a Male hitting the bait for two weeks.
    So she wants to hunt something big and dangerous with me. We've booked a two on one Cape Buffalo hunt with Ken Moody Safaris.
    I've Been to Namibia for two years in a row now it's time to see a different part of Africa.
    Congratulations I see you finally got your Tom Cat.

    Such a sad day in the UK, and sadder for Africa. politicians worldwide will destroy Africa’s wildlife with their supposed well intended bans. Theses bans have nothing to do with saving wildlife it’s only to support their base for re-election. If it were to support wildlife ALL anti hunting organizations would accept hunting as a viable tool in conservation. But we here know it’s simply emotion based bullshit.
