Hi guys I know this is an old thread but I plan on hunting Caracal next year and I'm doing my research. I've never hunted anything that required a cites before and didn't realize that I needed to take care of this before the hunt so anyone that can point me in the right direction to apply for a permit would be a great help. Also I heard that you can no longer hunt African Wildcat in South Africa does anyone have any info on this the only thing I can find on the internet is that they require a cites permit. Thanks Bob

This the one you are talking about?
Black-footed cat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
If so this is a Protected species under RSA TOPS and CITES Appendix I.

"Appendix I includes species threatened with extinction. Trade in specimens of these species is permitted only in exceptional circumstances."

I think this is the one:

African wildcat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The black footed cat are a diff. specie. The African wildcat are closely related to domestic cats. The southern ones are a subspecie of the north African wildcat as the European one are.

from IUCN:

In North
Africa they occur discontinuously from
Morocco through Algeria, Tunisia, Libya
and into Egypt. It has an extensive
distribution across the savannas of West
Africa from Mauritania on the Atlantic
seaboard, eastwards to the Horn of Africa,
Sudan and Ethiopia; southwards it is
present in all East and southern African
countries (Stuart et al. in press) where it
is replaced by the Southern African
Wildcat subspecies F.s. cafra (Driscoll et
al. 2007). At present the boundary
between the two cannot be determined
by available genetic samples, but
morphological evidence suggests the
break to occur in the south-east, in the
area of Tanzania and Mozambique
(Yamaguchi et al. 2004a,b; Kitchener and
Rees 2009).

Yes this is the one. Does anyone know if this one is still huntable?

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
