    Meat hunting Zambia

    Well I are after 6 years going to swallow my pride and pay per KG to shoot some Animals on a property in Zambia.
    Ran into a Farmer last break in my home town and during conversation arranged to come out and shoot for the freezer.
    Different concept for me.
    Not sure what to expect and are hoping that it has some form of walk and stalk involved.
    But also viewing it as a way possibly to pave the way to some more properties and areas to hunt.
    Farmer does a bit of PH work in Zambia so he can hopefully give me the ins and outs of hunting in the game management areas which you can get a permit for each year.
    Seems strange but as a expat you don't want to showing your face in the govt offices to try and get a permit unless you know the system because you will get the run around from desk to desk and bang your head against the wall.
    Traded 22-250 in on a 308 for some knock down power as well.
    In a sense I already pay to hunt as all trips home to NZ in last 6 years have been fly in trips to private blocks due to time constraints.
    But this will be a little bit different as the animals tho running on a large area they are still fenced in.
    Hopefully can fill the freezer in next three weeks and will post a story and photos on how it pans out and see how it sits with my ethics.
    Cheers

    + 1, and just because there is a big fence involved it might not make it any easier.

    Where in Zambia? I used to run the grate north road to Tanzania for a few years and north of north Launanga would quite often come across kudu and water Buck. Not fun at three in the morning when I came across Ely. Big body small eye.......no eye if facing the wrong way that one was very close to becoming a rather nasty rear end TA

    Well had my hunt today.
    Had a ball , good learning experience and added 3 new animals to my bucket list and to my freezer.
    Will post some photos and a short write up in next few weeks when I get back to a desk top.
    Bushbuck, puku and Impala they take some bringing down and don't give up.

    Great stuff.
    On a side note I just did some work for a Miss Vardon.
    Her great great grandfather discovered the Vardons Kob. Also know as the Puku.
    I've seen them as far north as Queen Elizabeth's Nat park in Uganda.
    I think he first saw it around Botswana in the Chobe area when hunting with Livingston.

    Saw a truck that hit a Kudu in Nambia up near the Caprive strip. Now that was a mess.
    How did you like the taste of the waterbuck?
    Never tasted that one but was told that it's not that good, like shit I think was the quote.
    I liked Worthog the best. It's like a cross of half pork half beef. Yummy

    Good luck with the rest of your trip out there
