Amateur hunting bodies have failed their members new item

For 25 years my job was to help save failing organisations. A key part of the rehabilitation process was to ensure they had properly funded, professionally managed public relations strategic plans in place, which were measurable and measured regularly. In May 2012, I was asked by a senior ...

Some Erudite Alternative Views

Here are some negative comments I have received recently via Facebook and email. "You are everything that is wrong with mankind today. By all means do your hunting…but maybe try without a gun and you will find that will be your last hunt. Fair game with a gun? I think not you’re a disgusting, vile and ...

Red Lechwe Ramblings

Well over 30 years ago, I was invited by a friend to acquire a minority stake in a Botswana safari outfitter. We flew up to inspect the main concession in the Okavango Swamps - my first visit to the country - and I was immediately captivated by what I came to think of as the eighth wonder of the world ...

The Livingstone's Eland of Mocambique's Niassa Reserve

If you are a passionate eland hunter, then October in Northern Mozambique's massive Niassa Reserve is where to be. It is the time and place when the huge - and I do mean huge - old, blue-black warlords emerge from their thicket strongholds and join the herds of elegant, tan, white striped, thin horned ...

Second Bull Bandit

Second Bull Bandit

A good friend of mine, Peter Kennedy, the king of plus 60 inch kudu hunters, advises that whenever you seek permission to hunt kudu from a landowner, you should always ask to hunt two. That way, he says, you can always make up for shooting a smaller one earlier in the hunt. I prefer to think of it as ...

Hyenas - The Voice of Africa

I think most hunters would agree that, the more they know about the animal they intend to hunt, the better are their chances of success. For years, however, when it came to hunting hyenas, the information was scanty at best and terribly misleading at worst. Pre-1950 it is difficult to find anything ...

The Most Special Spiral Horn?

Published in Collector's Edition of SA Hunter, October 2014

The Most Special Spiral Horn?

I have often been asked, which do I think is the most special of all the spiral horns. Well, the first question to be asked is probably what constitutes a spiral horn and how many are there? Traditionally, the spiral horns or tragelaphine family constitute nine species: kudu, lesser kudu, eland, giant ...

Ready to Hunt in Africa?

There are only three things you need to know as an amateur hunter about hunting in countries to the north of us - preparation, preparation and preparation. Preparation of your body and mind, clothing and equipment and, last but not least, rifles and ammunition. Most of this will be dictated ...

Omo Valley Venture

Johannesburg to Addis Ababa - seven hours on the efficient Ethiopian Airlines. From there, two hours in a Cessna Caravan to the landing strip at Murulle Camp on the eastern bank of the Omo River in southeastern Ethiopia. When I stepped out of the plane, I walked into a damp cotton-wool wall of ...

Buffalo Blunders

Buffalo Blunders

This story takes me back many, many years. To about 1984 as I remember it. The time of a devastating drought that tortured our South African Lowveld for months on end. It was pathetic to see the game, many of them skin and bone, tottering around in search of non-existent food and water. But I am ...

First Lion

Published in Game Trails, Spring 2014

First Lion

There are four basic ways to hunt lions and, at one time or another, I have used them all, and more than once. By far the most popular way today is to bait the animal, build a blind and wait for the lion to come to the meat. At the other end of the spectrum, you can take advantage of a chance encounter ...

Who Shot the Donkey?

Who shot the Donkey? It reminded me of the nursery rhyme song - "Who shot Cock Robin? I said the sparrow, with my bow and arrow, I shot Cock Robin. All the birds in the air were a sighing and a sobbing as they heard of the death of poor Cock Robin ... " In this case, it was me with my little .300 Win. Mag. ...
