Buffalo Hunters Part 2: Hunting the Asian Water Buffalo

DVD, running time 1 hour, 11 minutes

Rainer Josch is both a talented PH and a talented film producer. He likes to make graphically appealing films that focus not just on the kill. This is hard to do because most hunters are interested in seeing the result of a hunt, and lots of kills in a film are sometimes used in the outdoor movie .......

Mozambique: PH Gored by Buffalo
A PH in Mozambique is recovering after being attacked by a Cape buffalo in an incident witnessed by Hunting Report subscriber Craig Johnson. As this issue was preparing for press, Johnson called from the Atlanta airport, where he had just landed, to give me his first-hand account of his safari.....
Zimbabwe: Save Valley Permits Withheld
As this issue went to press most of the properties comprising the Save Valley Conservancy in Zimbabwe had not yet been issued their quotas from the Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, and operators there may have to cancel, postpone or move safaris elsewhere. We warned Email Extra subscribers about this in a bulletin dated July 1.....
In The Editor's Sights: Just Plain Good Hunts . . . Got it!
We're pretty sure that many of our subscribers are trophy hunters and collectors. We surmise this from the number of reports we receive on that type of hunt. But not all Hunting Report subscribers and not even all trophy hunters are always focused on trophies or exotic, collector species. We hear over and over again that you want actionable information on "just plain good hunts" from around the world.....
South Africa: RSA Delays New Document Requirements for Traveling Children
Last month I told you that South African immigration authorities were implementing some new documentation requirements that would affect anyone traveling with under-aged children.....
Outfitter Critique: Three Just Plain Good Plains Game Hunts in South Africa
And finally, a number of subscribers recently reminded me that Africa hunting isn't always about dangerous game and glamorous species, and even seasoned Africa trophy hunters enjoy a good, straightforward plains game hunt with all of the amenities. They asked me to cover such options on a more regular basis. So, this month I am featuring three reports on plains game hunts in South Africa......
US and Canada West: Where to Look For Mountain Lions – Part II
Editor's Note: In many western states and parts of Canada, a mountain lion hunt is a great way to extend your hunting season into winter. Last month, shortly after he returned from a "Mountain Lion Summit" with fresh information on the status of these elusive animals across the hemisphere, North American Editor Mike Bodenchuk took a look at the states where "lions" are hunted all year (read that article here).....
North American West: Coping with Post-Draw Disappointment, Part II
Editor's Note: Didn't get the hunt you were hoping for in the draw, and looking for last-minute options for a North American hunt this fall? With most hunts already booked, last-minute opportunities can be hard to come by. We asked North American Editor Mike Bodenchuk to look around and see what he could find. In Part 1, which we published in the July issue (see pg. 8), Bodenchuk brought you opportunities from some proven booking agents. He continues that theme this month and brings you more that he's turned up by digging deeper into his resource list. Not only did he check with a reputable agent, but he also found some remaining license opportunities for elk and various openings with several outfitters. Enjoy!
Briefly Noted: More Information on Chronic Wasting Disease
We've written about Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and its impacts on deer and elk herds before. As fall hunting seasons approach, we asked North American Editor Mike Bodenchuk to catch us up on the latest news and provide some guidance to Hunting Report subscribers hunting these species this fall. Here's what he reports....
Outfitter Critique: Great Value on this Romania Brown Bear Hunt
In Report 9731, Michael Brooker says he enjoyed a very successful brown bear hunt in Romania with Game Hunting Romania (;; 011-40-021-312-09-14). This is the first report we have had on this outfitter.....
Outfitter Critique: Three Reports from New Zealand Hunts
We have three new hunt reports from New Zealand, including our first report on a hunting lodge on the North Island, Kuranui Wilderness Lodge and Trophy Park. Ross Murphy hunted there after spending a week in late April hunting with Telford Fishing and Hunting Services on the South Island. He was accompanied by his non-hunting wife on both legs of the trip......
Outfitter Critique: Positive Report on Wyoming Mule Deer Hunt
Subscriber and occasional correspondent Tom McIntyre has checked in with a very positive report (9751) on a mule deer hunt he took last season in Wyoming with Ed Beattie of Five Star Expeditions (; 308-874-4510). He hunted a leased ranch northeast of Thermopolis on the southern tip of the Bighorn Mountains.....
Controversy: Update on Agent Larry Bryant
In our January issue, we reported on former Alaska guide and agent Larry Bryant, who has reportedly been taking deposits from hunters and anglers for trips that never materialized (read that article here). Alaska guide James "Bim" Blake had told us that he and a large group of hunters were left stranded in Petropavlovsk after traveling to Russia to hunt for sheep, moose and bear......
Controversy: More on Recovering Trophies from Todd Rice's Sonoran Outfitters
We have published complaints about hunts in Mexico with Sonoran Outfitters and outfitter Todd Rice in three of our last four issues (click the links for the articles in our April, May, and June issues). These complaints are so serious, we've made the complete file available to the entire hunting public in the Web Uploads section of our home page.....
Controversy: Peru Outfitter Takes Client on Illegal Deer Hunt
Continuing subscribers will remember our reports about the reopening of hunting in Peru in 2009 (see Articles 2114 and 2181.) At that time, J. Thomas Saldias, Safari Club International's South American representative, spearheaded an effort to legalize sporthunting and create the systems necessary to regulate hunting, establish requirements for outfitters and issue hunting quotas and licenses.....
Quebec: An Update on Conservation Threats to the George River Caribou Herd
We continue to check in on the migratory caribou of the George River herd in Quebec and Labrador, and are monitoring the Strange Lake Project, a mine proposed by Quest Rare Minerals Ltd., the Montreal-based development company. As readers will recall, we reported in our March issue that there were conflicts between the data on the George River caribou herd being presented by Quest Rare Minerals and that of Caribou Ungava, a joint research project between Université Laval, Université de Sherbrooke, and the Quebec Government.......

United States: Important Deadlines
Here are the important permitting developments to watch for this month in the US. Compiled by Mike Bodenchuk, North American Editor June 21, 2014.
Conservation Force: Status of Elephant Import Suspensions for Zimbabwe and Tanzania
As this went to print, decisions by US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) on the elephant import suspensions for both Zimbabwe and Tanzania were imminent. First, Zimbabwe. USFWS was expected to make a “final” determination on the interim suspension by mid-July and confirmed to us that it was in fact reviewing the responses provided by Zimbabwe and the extensive comment (100-plus documents) filed by Conservation Force.....
Conservation Force: The True Status of White Rhino Populations
Despite the unprecedented level of poaching in recent years, white rhino populations are at an all-time high. Of course, not as high as they would be but for the poaching, but not in decline. In South Africa, the high level of poaching has not yet reached the rhino growth rate, which would be the tipping point. Moreover, the poaching rate has declined.....
Conservation Force: Win the Wild, A Fictionalized Account of How South Africa Reclaimed Its Wildlife Heritage
Don Lindsay has just written a novel that is not really fiction at all. It is the story of the game ranching industry in South Africa. It is the story of three generations of a South African family that explains the entire ranching industry, i.e. the restoration of game and wildlife to a land that had been denuded of wildlife for livestock – the re-wilding of South Africa. The family’s ranch is the very first wild game ranch in RSA. I understand it is, in part, Don’s own family story.....

Will Your Firearm Go Hunting With You this Season? Or Will the Airlines Eat It?
Barbara Crown, Traveling with your hunting firearm gets more difficult every year, thanks to ever-changing airline policies and government agency regulations. Right now, thousands of hunters are either finalizing travel plans for this fall or are about to get on a plane for the African safari season this summer. The question is: will their guns get to their final destination with them? Or will the airlines refuse to check them through?

Sunset on Botswana

How would one describe Africa? A hundred lifetimes would paint a hundred different pictures with no one truth being the same as the one preceding it. Yet Africa holds one promise that has and will continue to be an absolute.

The only constant in Africa… is change.

This is a story of change, one that has come to a land designed by Go.......
