Just a curiosity question. I see folks bow hunting in Africa but can you crossbow hunt as well? Neighbor of ours bow and crossbow hunts and has been offering to show me the ropes for white tail...got me to wondering about Africa for the crossbow. Thanks!

Depends on the country/province, but generally yes with the proper permits. (Some jurisdictions do not require permits.)

I'm sure your outfitter can obtain a permit, but I'm not familiar with the regulations other than below I found on the net.

According to the SA Gov gazette 2009:

Agree on what Jaws said, Your outfitter will advise you but I am sure there won't be a problem

Crossbows are legal in some areas depending on the specie. I have guided many crossbow hunts.

Depending on the species, crossbows are lawful in various locations. I've led several crossbow hunts. This manual was read by me. This Guide -->

CM,
That is nice work! I would like that cartridge slide for 50-110 Win. I would also use it for 500 S&W. Six cartridge loops would be perfect for me.

I will send you payment immediately.

Thank you,
