Well done video. Are there more episodes? Where was this screened?
Please ping us when Episode 2 is available.
I wish I could answer your questions about this video, however I know very little about it other than some familiar faces.
Maybe Louis will chime in.
Great video. Well done. Looking forward to more.
"Preaching to the choir" but very well done none the less. I too am looking forward to future episodes..
great video. I just wish the word trophy was not used and it was based on all hunting and managing of all animals. Be a better message overall I think
These are the people that produced the video.
The following is the text that accompanies the video at YouTube:
"Published on Apr 3, 2018How does trophy hunting benefit conservation? Can hunting animals really insure the well-being of a species? Are anti-hunting organizations really in the best interests of animal populations? These questions and more are answered by conservationist that are living amongst the African wildlife. Hanson Inspired visited South African in May 2017 with the intentions of forming our own opinion on trophy hunting. Neither of our film makers have previously witnessed a trophy hunt or the conservation aspect of ranchers in South Africa. The numbers don't lie. No other form of tourism provides the funding and labor required to sustain or revive wildlife population that trophy hunting offers. South Africa's wildlife populations are thriving with the help of trophy hunting while Kenya, Botswana, and other countries that banned trophy hunting are seeing animal populations plummet."
I must agree with Billc and Shootist43. The word trophy in with hunting does not accurately depict our purpose and unfortunately all us on this site know that the hunting public is the leading force in conservation. It is a good video that is working to get the right message out there, don't know who other than us, is listening!
Looks like Spiralhorn safaris paid for the video.
It's my hope that the choir members here will share this with members of the congregation ( both hunting and non- hunting )
Share it now!
Then, maybe, bring it up in conversation later over a cup of coffee, or a pitcher of beer at the bowling alley, or at the doggie park.
If we don't take the opportunity, who will?
If ever there was a time that hunter-conservationists around the world could do the wildlife ranchers and farmers in RSA a "solid", that time is now.
This video was done in corparation with a few friends.

Great guys who offered their time up for free since they believe in the concept as well.
The idea is to shed some positive light on the South African game farming industry.
Episode 2 is done and will be avalable shortly.
We wanted to be pro active with regards to hunting in South Africa and put a possitive meggage out there.
Louis van Bergen
Very well done. Good words about conservation. I would like to hear more statistics on how the RSA industry grew after the 1992 law giving game ownership to ranchers. This is a fundamental part of the story. Privatization always works better than total government control and they are the proof. I don’t know the numbers but the growth since then has been tremendous.
Here is Episode 2.
Louis van Bergen
How many more episodes are there in this series and/or planned in the future?
Nothing better than more positive information on the web.
We are planning to more episodes.
I would like for PHASA and or WRSA to get behind this.
We would also like to get other hunting/game farming operations involved.
Most importantly we would like to get a segmant from the hunters point of view as well.
