Hi Guys

Some of you already know this but finally I am able to post on AH with the compromised internet service I have.

I am in Angola and all is going well. Miss you guys and will keep in touch. Currently I am assisting with new developments for national parks and agricultur. There might be hope for Angola in the future.

I tried to upload some pictures but were unable to get them loaded.

Regards
Bossie Mostert

Glad to see you could get a post up about you new job. If you get some hunting opened up there I will need to look hard to see what is there to hunt.

hope the family is all settled in and all is going well for all of you.

Hi Guys

All is going well in Angola. I am still here and I am currently down south in a small town called Humpata about 25km from Lubango.
Finally it looks as if I would be able to post a few pictures and tell you about Angola and the current situation.
In the time here I came across some interesting places and people. For those of you, including myself, hoping Angola will reopen hunting, well it's going to happen but it still needs some time and plenty of education.

Currently there is no hunting regulation, firearm licensing system or any type of system that the rest of us are used to.
I have come to realize that it is a free for all except in the National Parks where there is no game left in any way.
I have only heard of it, but from what I was told there is a good breeding project established for the Giant Sable somewhere near Milange, and that could only be good news and the minimum penalty for killing one is 75 Years in jail.

Me out Hunting on the banks of the Lukala River. The area is tuff to hunt and extremely dense. Home to Blue Duiker, Bushbuck, Common Crocodile and a few other critters.

a Bush market between Luanda and Ndalatando where I came across many different species like Bushbuck, Blue Duiker, Bushpig and Harvey Duiker. At this market Bushbuck were selling for 6000.00 Kwanza, Blue Duiker for 3000 Kwanza and Harvey Duiker for 4000 Kwanza. The current Kwanza to USD rate on the black market is 180 Kwanza to 1 USD.

Well I don't want to leave you all with a bad memory. Angola has many very beautiful places to visit and this is just one of them.
The Kalandula Water Falls.

By my calculation, using your numbers, a blue duiker is about US$16, which seems like a lot for something not much bigger than a healthy rat!

You bet Bill, as You, Peter and I have already discussed, we will make this a special family hunt.
Man with the long times away from home one actually realize how important and special those family times are.

Wheels,

You aren't being fair here. I know that sometimes we are told these things get sold at cost, but the outfitter really does need to mark them up and make a profit.

$28 trophy fee sounds reasonable. Don't you think? :E Big Grin:

Great pictures of what looks like a wonderful country, at least it was once, hopefully it can be again. It will take time.

Good to hear all is well Bossie. Angola looks like a beautiful place. Hopefully the powers in charge will realize what wonderful natural resources they have and get a plan in place.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
