At this point, Wilson says he has long since refunded the deposits of four US hunters who wanted to be the first into Uganda. And he has stopped sending out any more literature on the country. That does not mean he - or Wyeth - have given up. "The country is going to open," Wilson said. "It's just taking longer than expected, and the end result is probably going to be a smaller program than originally expected."
In the meantime, Wilson confirmed that Rogers Matama of Game Trails, Ltd. has continued to operate the Lake Mburo hunting program we have told you about in the past. The problem there is the limited number of species and the mediocre trophy quality. The only real draw there is waterbuck, which have been taken up to 35 inches.
