Rhetorical question, where will the African hunting business be when the boomers are gone?
I turn 65 in September. I will be hunting. I hunt alone on public lands, so do a lot of walking. And it takes a lot of research to figure out the rules.
Shot my first wild hog in January - tough drag, but made it.
I plan on trying handgun hunting with my new/used Super Redhawk.
And I need to buy a lighter weight tree climber - that is an age related decision.
Glad I read this post, it renews my determination to keep hunting.
I agree with you Leslie, I'm not even close to ready to hang it up. "Die First, Then Quit."
There are lots of ways to force the non-consumptive users to help pay for conservation. Historically they've dodged them or resisted. CB
Craig, My son and I really enjoyed the presentation you gave at the KC SCI Expo. I wish we would have known the answers to the many questions we should have asked. But like they say, "you live and learn."
Thank you. One of the best things about hunting is it is a big and complex world and we never run out of things to learn!
Using that 21 million number - people who purchased a license within 5 years and consider themselves hunters equates to 6.5% of the US population. That seems surprisingly small percentage, even for a guy who lives in Florida where hunting isn't as popular as in Texas, West of Midwest.
If all goes as planned, I will hunt up until noon on the day of my funeral.... Interesting statistics, not sure they apply to my circle of friends.
I know in my family there is a whole new generation of hunters hooked on Africa. My father took myself, my brother in law and my cousin this past year and we are all planning return trips. According to my 8 yr old son I should go to Africa whenever I want to. I am thinking that there are 2 new generations of hunters in my family that will do our part to keep African hunting going.
I was going to be buried in a asbestos suit so I can hunt satan. maybe not, as my wife doesn,t think it would be a good idea and he may be hunting me.
I’m the cousin, and my 7 and 9 year old boys have been looking through hunt brochures and watching Tracks Across Africa since we got back putting together their game list for when I take them. When we got off the plane coming home, my 4 year old little girl told me quite frankly the next time I go to Africa she IS going. But first we had to get her a gun so she could shoot her Kudu.
Man, I’ve got to get another job.
