And, finally, at press time Hunting Report subscriber Shane Stokes called from Nepal with interesting news. He says the Government of Nepal has signed a peace treaty with the Maoist rebels that have waged a 13-year long war in the Himalayan country. Although hunting remained legal throughout that conflict, few permits were issued due to the unstable situation in the remote areas. Now, groundwork is being laid for a new government. A democratically elect body will replace the Monarchy of King Gyanendra; new laws and regulations are to be enacted. This is a critical juncture for the direction of hunting in Nepal, said Stokes who lives and works in Nepal but is an American. He promised to send The Hunting Report a list of key contacts in Nepal who international hunters and their agents can contact to express an interest in the survival of hunting in Nepal. As soon as we receive that list, we will post it to our web site at www.hunting report.com, along with any new information. Look under Web Updates for Save Hunting In Nepal.
