Lies, Bloody Lies and Surveys - Game Numbers new item

In recent days, two surveys have been brought to my attention which make sweeping and major statements about hunting, conservation and game ranching in this country. In the one instance the statements were based mainly on interviews with one quarter of 1% of the game ranchers in this ...

Lies, Bloody Lies and Surveys – Colour Variants 3 new item

To be honest, there is so much twaddle written on this subject by so many people that should and often do know better that I normally ignore most of it but the recent press release by Professor Peet van der Merwe of the Potchefstroom Campus of North-West University begs just too many ...

Colour Variants and Canned Killing – The Namibian Policy

Last night my attention was drawn to a speech by Namibia’s Minister of the Environment and Tourism at the NAPHA AGM last week and I thought it so important that I have taken the unusual step (for me) of blogging about it the day after my previous blog was produced. Please read it and you will ...

Some Roan I Remember

MARCH 2016

Some Roan I Remember new item

I like hunting roan, especially in West Africa. I think they are harder to hunt than Lord Derby's eland, for example, because the big, lone roan bulls seem never to stop walking - they feed as they walk - and then, by mid-morning, they start looking for a shady place to stop, ruminate and while away the ...

Zebra - Pyjama Clad Horses? new item

It is sad but true. We have had a few hunters - or should I say "so-called" hunters - who visited us on our game ranch who had no love of wildlife, its conservation or, in fact, of hunting itself. Their driving force was inches. Inches which determined whether the horns they sought qualified as a ...

The Five Huntable Hartebeest on Licence in Africa Today new item

It was my second visit to the 10,000 hectare game and cattle farm near Ellisras in the old Transvaal. The four of us hunters stood with our backs to the white washed wall on the broad veranda of the well-kept, traditional, old farmhouse with its red, corrugated iron roof, sheltered from the nippy ...

Leopard Lunacy

Leopard Lunacy new item

I was 27. Been a PH for exactly three years and an appy for five years before that. Why five years? Firstly, on $30.00 per month I could barely afford the costs of the exam and, secondly, I was determined to pass at my first attempt. I'd seen too many eager beaver appies try their luck after their third year ...

How to Hunt Hard when it's Hard to Hunt new item

I am 67 and there are days when I seem to hear the ticking of Father Time's clock especially loudly. All those things they told me would not be possible after 40 have been a reality for many years and the cliche, "old age is not for sissies" no longer wrings a wry smile from me. I have discovered they are ...
