    While India has been closed, and magnificent biodiversity, a country to the east is not closed. This is a small country with rich culture, little tourism is open to hunting. I managed to get the laws for this country. It is a little hard to understand. Zimbabwe looks like Mexico compared to Bangladesh. Since Bangladesh has 156 million people, you get what I mean. This website should help in hunting South Asia again.http://bdlaws.minlaw.gov.bd/pdf/452___Schedule.pdf

    That's actually really cool. The legal structure seems to be typically British, like what would have been in place in Kenya back in the day, I bet.

    We will have to see if they have enacted authorizing regulations concerning the number of tags etc. It wouldn't suprise me if the funds haven't been there to update the operation of the law. When I get a chance, I will see if I can pull anything up on this. Maybe the consulate can help?

    Nobody has gone here. No wonder they haven't invested in conservation. Most of hunters are city people who have licenses, or (majorly) are poachers. Wildlife is seen as a nuisance. Seem familiar? Like Kenya today, or Tanzania when it was closed. Tigers are currently hunted in SA. If the some tigers were brought her, The population would jump up. Who knows, one day tiger hunting could be legal again!

    I'll put country info here, though I would like help. Since it is a banana republic (really jute/tea republic) PETA wouldn't be that powerful.

    Back when I was in law school one of my Professor's husband was in Bangladesh, teaching the locals not the poop in the drinking water. I wonder how much as changed? From looking at Wikipedia not much. I'll pass on hunting there. But thanks for the information.
