“If CITES does not really help us to conserve our wild animals, but frustrating those that are doing good, I think there is no need for us to stay in CITES,” Shifeta said.

Best thing we could do, the way it is going....

I doubt if I ever hunt an elephant or a rhino, but I am all for the "have countries" exiting! And staying out!

It might be a wake-up call for CITES, but unfortunately other countries can still impose sanctions on trophy imports. I could see the fools in the US even restricting travel or hunting for US citizens if they want to make the point that they control the CITES agenda, not African countries.

Before they leave and have it do U.S hunters any good, there would have to be some kind of favorable importation rulings by the USF&WL specifically for these countries.

USF&W hierarchy is too politicized to do much about Africa. Their record speaks for itself.

I think leaving CITES could be a great thing for African wildlife, but I don’t see it helping American hunters at all. The attitude here seems to be that we can bully other countries into accepting our terms, but if they can no longer get away with that they’ll find another way to interfere in wildlife management. That means interfering with hunters directly. Tree huggers never quit.

Slippery slope.

Curious if any native North American animals come under the CITES convention.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
