I'm just starting to plan my next hunt in RSA ans I'm thinking of hunting a hyena. Have any of you guys hunted hyena before? If so, how did your hunt go? It's the spotted hyena I'm wanting to hunt. Pictures would be appreciated.

It is worth it, you should do it.
I hunted for hyena in 2009 in dande south in Zim, we shoot some baboons averyday and used them for bait then hunted for a few hours everynigth waiting for a hit that in my case never happened while we were on watch at nigth but in all honesty just being in the dark of the nigth in the dominion of simba and chuy is worth it. You will never forget the experience of the nigth watch.

I have tried thrice now with no success. I have seen them in Tanzania and Botswana but wasnt hunting them then. Be sure you ask any prospective outfitters what they offer as you may find when you get there that "hyena" means brown and not spotted. Must ask.

Nice mount. Jerry does great work and is obviously quite fast too.

That Hyena was taken in 2010 but Jerry is quite fast. He did quite a bundle for us that year and will have our stuff from this year as well when it gets here.

I could have taken a Hyena on the Zim side of the Limpopo river in broad daylight. It was mid morning and we were looking for Kudu and Eland and saw one sunning it self on a rocky out crop about mid morning. The shot would have been around 150 meters, but alas Hyena was not on my want list so it lived for someone else. I am told that this is quite a rare opportunity, and we enjoyed watching it for about half houre before continuing with the hunt.

I believe Brown are non-importable into the US

Brown Hyena cannot be imported to the USA . They should be able to be imported but Fish and Wildlife have their own rules !!!! It is a potty as they make great mounts !

Hyena is a very challenging hunt. They're more wary than what most think...

We have good success hunting Spotted Hyena in Zululand and also next to Kruger National Park.

Best,

The Hyena I'm talking about is a Brown Hyena (not importable into the USA I'm afraid) and he is on bait right here on my ranch. No teasing - here is a pic from my trailcam taken last month. I've been hunting away from home so haven't downloaded pics from the last month but he's been coming in religiously since May...
