    Do they not do darting in the normal course of animal well being tests (blood samples, etc.)? Described above is the "hunter" participates in the darting of the rhino for DNA, tracking chip, etc.... What's the full regulation on green hunting in Namibia? Not just a one sentence statement.

    BTW, this was done last year also.

    Back in early 2011 I contacted NAPHA about someone selling dart Rhino hunts in Namibia and no one got back to me.

    Thank you to the forum and its members. After seeing this thread, I contacted our SCI Alaska hunt coordinator and they pulled the hunt from the Saturday night auction.

    Can you believe Namibia makes this practice illegal? First of all you used to be able to actually dart the rhino. Now in RSA you stand behind the vet and shoot s stupid vitamin dart and say that's your trophy? Sorry I don't get it.
