    bluey: According to John Hume, a very successful rhino breeder ( and South Africa's largest breeder), once every two to three years appears to be very safe for the animals.

    Interesting hunt. I would also like to hear more about this hunt when you have a chance.

    Hope the rest of the hunt is as successful.
