Interesting to see the Kudu limit.
I was thinking the same thing.
When I hunted Namibia last year, my outfitter claimed there was a rabies outbreak killing a lot of Kudu? We were still able to find a good number of fine bulls to pick from though. I have kept in touch with my PH and outfitter. They were planning post season to use helicopters and fire vacation darts, to hopefully slow the disease on their farms.
Please explain the following:?
"Hunting permits cannot be used to take horns (trophies) out of Namibia. No such export may take place without prior permission from the Ministry of Environment and Tourism," Shifeta said.
Do I need a separate permit to take my Trophies home?
Namibia Professional Hunting Association: Hi Gunnar,
To export any trophies you would require a TROPHY HUNTING PERMIT, which must be applied for by your outfitter at the Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
The above notice is an announcement for the MEAT Hunting season.
Another veterinary restriction is that prior permission from the veterinary services is required to transport warthog or parts of warthog from the place where it was obtained; and for any game meat or product of game meat or game birds to be exported from Namibia.
THE veterinary cordon fence in the northern part of the country continues to hamper the integration of economic activities for the benefit of all Namibians. However, under the guidelines announced by the minister, hunting establishments situated north of the cordon fence, also known as the red line, already start at a disadvantage as destinations for hunters who might want to bring the meat from the north.
“The Directorate of Veterinary Services does not allow game meat to be transported from north of the veterinary cordon fence,” said Shifeta's statement.
However, meat and meat products from south of the fence easily cross to the north and this has justified calls for the translocation of the fence.
Namibia Trophy Hunting Season unchanged
With reference to an article by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism published in last weeks newsletter, we would like to clarify, that this information only referred to the Meat Hunting Season in Namibia.
Trophy Hunting Season for Namibia remains unchanged with the season starting on 01 February until 30 November of each year.
We apologize if confusion was created.

Rabies have done a number in Namibia on the Kudu. When I was there in 2015 you could find lots of carcasses.
