    Not really a hunting video but it was taken on our hunting trip while we were in Namibia.

    Looks like fun !!! This is Marc. I'm a hunter and conservationist. My wife and I work yearly with rhinos, antelope, buffalo, etc in southern Africa. (various countries) We've been doing it for years and love it...plus we've learned a lot about the dynamics of African conservation. Opportunities range from working in wildlife orphanages to working with wildlife veterinarians, or doing field research. No pre-training needed !! Anyone interested?

    I was able to pet two back in 2013 that had been darted for DNA sample taking and having a chip put in the ears!

    I was around a pair of white rhino youngsters a couple of years ago. Loads of fun! They were about 1/3- 1/2 grown but boy oh boy when it came to feeding time look out! Even playing, they could be potentially dangerous just from their size and strength. They didn't have an aggressive thought in their tiny brains but could obviously easily break bones, cold cock you or worse with one errant swing of the head. No idea about the more aggressive black rhinos, even when young. I give plenty of room to adults of either flavor.
