Huge Record Breaking Trophies can still be hunted in Africa.
Finding good quality trophy’s in Africa is becoming more and more difficult. This is largely due to the huge amounts of outfitters and operators who have entered this market. Quite a few of these are luring naive and non-informed hunters from the east (China), whom are lured into paying ridiculous prices for example – rhino’s. In principle we most probably can’t object to the practice, since top quality trophies are not produced or bred overnight.
The fact of the matter is that many of these operators also subsequently cast a black shadow of doubt over our industry. They do this by offering these hunters access to a range of other species such as lions for example. Many of these lions are however bred in captivity, and kept in captivity till the day before the hunt. They are then released and hunted by a very satisfied hunter who is 99% of the time unaware of the preceding activities prior to the hunt.
THIS IS CANNED HUNTING AT IT’S BEST! PLEASE READ OUR POST ON ETHICAL HUNTING!
A sore subject in hunting circles, and detested by most if not all! In essence we do not have a objection to breeders who breed such animals to be released free to roam and on large properties, providing that such breeders adhere to the ‘strict guidelines’ of Nature Conservation’s policies and procedures. It is however a fact that there are many loopholes in the current guidelines and even more difficult to police by the authorities. The simple, and possibly easiest way of distinguishing the ethical breeders from the rest, is by looking at the size of their properties or private nature reserves. The moment you find top quality trophies on very small and restricted properties, chances are good that this will most likely be a ‘canned hunt’ of sorts.
Hunting Legends in Africa and Real Africa Safaris prides itself on the fact that it has taken us many years to secure our current hunting facilities and areas. Our areas and concessions are huge with the smallest being in excess of 30000 acres, and our big concessions in excess of 1000000 acres. Our big 5 hunts are generally conducted in either Botswana, Caprivi Delta, Zimbabwe, Mozambique or the Kalahari. We do however have excellent buffalo hunts in South Africa, and leopard hunts in Namibia (which is well known for large amounts of leopard)
We still have a few huge trophies available. 2 x Rhino’s: One Rhino cow at 30′ (that’s 30 inches) and a HUGE BULL of 27.5′ (27,5 inches). That’s record book stuff! Check out the SCI scores on Rhino’s and you will see that a 27,5′ (27,5 inch) Rhino BULL, will get you right there in the BOOK!
These are guaranteed sizes, as the Rhino’s have been darted and measured!
