Flack Hunts Cameroon: Into the Heart of Darkness

The hunt takes the viewer to Lognia camp in southeast Cameroon for western bongo, bay duiker, giant forest hog, red river hog, dwarf forest buffalo and rain forest elephant.

This short film is Peter Flack’s attempt to capture the essence of his safari for his family. As such, it is much more than a collection of one-shot animal kills. This .......

Flack Hunts Ethiopia: Omo Valley Venture; Balé Mountain Miracle

The hunt takes the viewer on two hunts to the Omo Valley, in the southwest, for lesser kudu, tiang, Guenther’s dik-dik, Newmann’s hartebeest; and the Munessa forest and the Balé Mountains southeast of Addis Ababa, for mountain nyala (two) and Menelik’s bushbuck.

Africa: A Closer Look at Lion Import Permits following the ESA Listing of Lion; Plus, Lion Hunting Reopens in Zambia
Lion bookings by American hunters have more or less ground to a halt in Africa following the US Fish and Wildlife Service's listing of African lion under the Endangered Species Act in December (see Article 3710). In the published Final Rule on the listing, the USFWS designated lions in western Africa and Asia as endangered and those in eastern and southern Africa as threatened....
Africa: Beware Illegal Leopard Hunts in Namibia
The Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) has become aware of operations offering "management" leopard hunts - basically leopard hunts where there is no leopard tag available. As NAPHA notes, such hunts are illegal....
In the Publisher's Sights
What if we stop hunting? That is the question being addressed at the 63rd General Assembly of the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC). This issue of The Hunting Report went to print literally as I was boarding a plane to Brussels in late April to participate in the CIC's Assembly, where the theme is "Hunting IS Conservation."
Africa: Follow-up Hunt Report on Uganda's Pian Upe Area
In March we shared subscriber Mychal Murray's report on an early-season hunt with KOS Safaris, the company operating the Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve in Uganda (see Article 3728). This month we have a second report on KOS Safaris from longtime subscriber Rod Wooley, who booked with Keith Atcheson of Jack Atcheson & Sons (; 406-782-2382)....
Africa: Three PH Associations Choose Ripcord as Official Rescue Provider
The Namibia Professional Hunting Association (NAPHA) has selected Ripcord to be its official rescue provider. As readers know, Ripcord is making big strides in the hunting industry....
North America: What's Happening to Moose (And Moose Permits)?
Editor's Note: Taking a moose in the Lower 48 is not getting any easier. In September 2013, Assistant Editor Justin Jones took a detailed look at struggling moose populations, following up in April 2014 (see Articles 3162 and 3341). Unfortunately, the overall picture has remained decidedly downbeat....
Europe: Have You Considered Germany for Your Next Hunt?
Germany is Europe's economic engine, highly industrialized, densely populated and crisscrossed by the Autobahn - not normally the stuff of hunting dreams. But after centuries of sustainable use, forests still cover one third of the country and a rich hunting tradition has conserved a healthy and diverse wildlife population....
Hunting Stone Sheep: Finding Success in a Changing World
Editor's Note: Stone Sheep have replaced desert bighorn as the most difficult and expensive North American wild sheep to hunt. In past months we have received reports of several unsuccessful hunts, including allegations that outfitters have failed in their obligations to clients. We asked Editor-at-Large Mike Bodenchuk to investigate....
US West: Established Arizona Outfitter Offering "Free" Elk and Mule Deer Hunts
Editor's Note: Many nonresidents put in year after year for a coveted Arizona elk or mule deer tag. When they finally draw, there comes the task of finding the right guide for this potential hunt-of-a-lifetime. Correspondent Dennis Dunn tells us he's discovered a proven guide service developing a new business model for those hard-to-draw hunts. Dunn says, "I have no doubt it will revolutionize the way draw hunts are booked, at least in Arizona." But will it work for you? Read on...
Canada: A Recommendable Free-Range Wood Bison Hunt in the Yukon
Canadian wood bison were downlisted by US Fish & Wildlife Service from Endangered to Threatened in 2012, which opened the door for trophy imports with a CITES Appendix II permit. Articles 3080 and 2893 gave you three outfitters to call. Now subscriber Harold Meyers tells us he's found another great wood bison hunt in Yukon (see Report 10496).
Pakistan: New Subscriber Reports on Pakistan Hunts
We have two new reports from Pakistan, filed by subscribers Michael Ambrose and Mark Hampton. Taken together, these reports indicate that reputable outfitters are able to a deliver great hunting and a high level of comfort and safety in that troubled country. 
Controversy: Follow-up on Negative South Africa Report
Before the ink was dry on our February print issue, Cliff Johnson's negative report on Pieter Kriel's Hunting in Africa Safaris (page 13, Report 10450) in the Email Extra edition had shaken loose yet another complaint about Kriel's failure to deliver trophies. ...
Controversy: Was This Alberta Mulie Hunt Oversold?
Subscriber Jon Shiesl is unhappy with a November, 2015 mule deer hunt in Alberta Area 210 with Scott Bauer and 2B Alberta Outfitters. The hunt was booked through Rick Kennerknecht's Global Sporting Safaris....
Featured Hunt Report: A Firsthand Report on Tunisian Wild Boar
Editor's Note: Back in April (Article 3537) we published subscriber/correspondent Tom McIntyre's report on his friend Geoff Clothier's hunt for driven wild boar in Tunisia with outfitter Baron Erik von Eckhardt's Swedish company, Svenska Jaktresor AB (;; 011-46-016-74163). That hunt produced the new world record Barbary wild boar. Now, McIntyre has come back to us with his own boots-on-the-ground assessment.
Latest Security Update on Tunisia From Ripcord
Five years after Tunisia's revolution and the Arab Spring uprisings, the country is still plagued by social unrest and active terror organizations claiming responsibility for multiple attacks on civilian and government targets. This year, the government declared a "State of Emergency" until March 22, 2016 due to terrorist activity....
Special Report: La Finca Lodge in Tamaulipas, Mexico Offers Outstanding Dove, Duck and Quail Shooting
Tamaulipas has long been one of the most popular wingshooting destinations in Mexico. Its popularity was spawned by easy access from the US, excellent shooting, the variety of birds available and long seasons. The hunting year starts off in mid-August with white-wing dove season, which runs through mid-October....
In our April issue, we had incorrect contact information for the agent selling Mary River Station (one of the great hunting properties in Australia). If you are interested contact Gunter Trnka,; 011-61-40-5504770 (cell). The website is

Important Deadlines
Here are the important permitting developments to watch for this month in the US.Compiled by Mike Bodenchuk, Editor-at-Large
Conservation Force: USFWS Accepting Comments on Reclassification of African Elephant as Endangered
On March 16, 2016, the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) published Notice that it had made a positive 90-day finding on two petitions to reclassify all African elephant from "threatened" to "endangered" under the ESA. 81 FR 14058. The USFWS has opened a comment period as part of its review of the elephant's status and the five listing criteria. 
Conservation Force: Modernizing the Pittman-Robertson Act
On March 22, the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation held its first breakfast briefing of 2016 to discuss proposed legislation to modernize the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937. This issue is critical - the Act provides significant funding for state wildlife authorities. But the states' use of these funds is restricted, and recruitment of new hunters and shooters is not a currently permitted use.
Conservation Force: Lion (and Leopard) Workshops - Kasane, Lusaka, Maputo and Dar es Salaam
In the fourth week of March, Conservation Force attended a lion workshop with 90 lion specialists in Kasane, Botswana. The workshop was a function of the African Lion Working Group (ALWG). Conservation Force Board Members Philippe Chardonnet and yours truly have belonged to the ALWG for more than a decade and deceased board member Bertrand des Clers also belonged.
