Hunting Namibia includes stories and full color pictures from almost ten years of safari hunting in Namibia. The safaris in this survey unfolded in most of the major untamed safaris areas of Namibia. This book offers helpful tips to those thinking about hunting in Namibia as well as stories that may seem familiar to those that have. Our safaris balance the drama, labor and fearlessness required for proper dangerous game hunting at close range with the precision shooting required for plains game. Larry Weishuhn adds a special dangerous game chapter entitled HEB. His exploits keep the reader right in the thorns and dust with him as he closes the gate on the hippo, elephant and buffalo of the Caprivi Strip.

Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Touristik / Tourismus, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This dissertation was written to investigate the significance, impact and future development of the trophy hunting industry in Namibia, one of the least populated countries in the world. Secondary research identified trophy hunting, a micro-tourism niche, as a highly controlled consumptive form of wildlife utilisation, successfully applied for species protection and conservation of game in Namibia. The economic income of the industry has increased over the years partly due to the establishment of conservancies. Moreover a questionnaire with quantitative quality questions was developed and sent out to individual experts (hunting guides, farmers and game farmers) operating in the trophy hunting industry in Namibia. Findings of the primary research were grouped, compared and contrasted with the findings of the secondary research and represented as percentages, graphs, cross tabulations and the Likert scale. Results showed that trophy hunting contributes towards education, job creation, species protection and conservation of the natural habitat. It was also identified that trespassing, illegal activities, foreign hunting guides and lack of human recourses pose a threat to the industry. The trophy hunting industry of Namibia in the opinion of individual experts and the minister of environment and tourism of Namibia has great potential for a sustainable future development.

Based on archival sources and oral history, this book reconstructs a border-building process in Namibia that spanned more than sixty years. The process commenced with the establishment of a temporary veterinary defence line against rinderpest by the German colonial authorities in the late nineteenth century and ended with the construction of a continuous two-metre-high fence by the South African colonial government sixty years later. This 1250-kilometre fence divides northern from central Namibia even today. The book combines a macro and a micro-perspective and differentiates between cartographic and physical reality. The analysis explores both the colonial state's agency with regard to veterinary and settlement policies and the strategies of Africans and Europeans living close to the border. The analysis also includes the varying perceptions of individuals and populations who lived further north and south of the border and describes their experiences crossing the border as migrant workers, African traders, European settlers and colonial officials. The Red Line's history is understood as a gradual process of segregating livestock and people, and of constructing dichotomies of modern and traditional, healthy and sick, European and African.

'As the rest of the world stood by and watched, Laurens risked everything to defend these extraordinary mammals from extinction. A truly powerful and inspiring story.' Susan Sarandon Laurens de Groot was a detective for the Dutch police, specializing in organized crime and environmental pollution. He was rapidly promoted through the ranks, but became increasingly disillusioned with failed prosecutions and minimal prison sentences. But although as a detective there was little he could do to stop the truly big criminals, there was a more radical option – direct action, not necessarily within the law. Laurens leaves his job, sells up, travels to Australia and joins Sea Shepherd, an international organization protecting marine wildlife. He soon finds himself in the middle of the war against the Japanese whaling fleet operating in the Antarctic whale sanctuary. As the Japanese hunt whales, Laurens and the Sea Shepherd crews hunt them. Their boats are tiny for the wild Southern Ocean, and as well as dealing with the extreme weather they are repeatedly attacked by the Japanese crews and nearly shipwrecked by ice. On one mission, their boat is rammed, cut in two and sunk by a whaling ship. This is war, with no quarter given. Hunting the Hunters is an action-packed and timely account of one man's extraordinary life, as well as an ongoing battle against a powerful nation determined to get its way no matter the cost. It's an important subject, one that a lot of people care about, and as Laurens tells the story in his own words this is a compelling and insightful book.

Rifling through Nature analyzes landscape, hunting, identity, and belonging by examining the staging of biltong hunting on wildlife ranches in South Africa. It examines how hunting landscapes have become sites where formerly dominant white settler masculinity can perform rootedness and belonging vis-à-vis its loss of political power./a/a /span

Hunting Namibia includes stories and full color pictures from almost ten years of safari hunting in Namibia. The safaris in this survey unfolded in most of the major untamed safaris areas of Namibia. This book offers helpful tips to those thinking about hunting in Namibia as well as stories that may seem familiar to those that have. Our safaris balance the drama, labor and fearlessness required for proper dangerous game hunting at close range with the precision shooting required for plains game. Our safaris started with tracking kudu and eland through the ancient acacia covered dunes and straights bordering Bushmanland then moves to dangerous game amongst the swamps of the Zambezi River in the Caprivi and the escarpment above. Larry Weishuhn adds a special dangerous game chapter entitled HEB. His exploits keep the reader right in the thorns and dust with him as he closes the gate on the hippo, elephant and buffalo of the Caprivi Strip. Our final weeks were spent amongst the powder dry red Kalahari dunes and arid wind swept mountains in the south and central regions where we found an abundance of uncontained gemsbok, kudu and Mountain zebra. Our provisions throughout were exceptional with the highlight likely being a feast of sheep's head and backstrap from one of the three cattle killing leopards we had to dispatch along the way. Our safaris in Namibia have been exciting, safe and fruitful with almost a total absence of biting flies and mosquitoes...what more could an adventure hunter ask for?

Are you ready to go on a HUNT? I hope so! These hunts are a lot of fun, and they are educational. By spending fifteen to twenty minutes, you and your students will be able to do the following: Learn about animals, including their descriptions, habitats, predators, diets, and babies. Learn interesting facts about things, including geographical terrain and climate. Touch on several subjects and skill sets, such as social studies, literacy, visualization, Bi-Lingual (foreign languages), and more. Understand how you can apply classroom management to your classroom using the hunts for positive classroom behavior. See how the Texas state testing module is aligned to the hunts. There are sixteen hunts ready for your classroom. Enjoy them! HAPPY HUNTING! Deborah A. Johnston

Game meat is consumed world-wide. In most regions, it contributes only a small part to the overall meat and food supply, but for reasons of animal welfare and sustainability it is sometimes considered an alternative to meat from farmed animals. Despite differences in game species, ante mortem conditions (free-range or fenced; wild or semi-domesticated), hunting or harvesting procedures and further handling of the carcass, there are common requirements as regards meat safety and quality. Whereas meat hygiene and safety have been an issue in game meat for export/import for a long time, primary production, domestic supply and direct supply to the consumer have recently been addressed by legislation and these sectors still present unresolved questions and challenges. This book combines 24 contributions presenting the view of experts in game meat hygiene and quality. They address four main topics: i.e. 'hygiene and microbiology', 'epidemiology', 'risk assessment and management' and 'muscle biology and meat quality'. In addition to contributions on this topic by authors from eight European countries, a South African perspective is provided, thus representing the standpoint of a major game meat exporter. This volume is the first in a series on safety and quality assurance along the game meat chain, following a 'from forest to fork' approach and is targeted at scientists in academia and industry, graduate students as well as at governmental officials in veterinary public health and food safety.

Consumptive forms of wildlife tourism (hunting, shooting and fishing) have become a topic of interest – both to the tourism industry, in terms of destinations seeking to establish or grow this sector, and to other stakeholders such as environmental organisations, animal-rights groups, and the general public. Hunting tourism, in particular, has come under fire with accusations that it is contributing to the demise of some species. Practices such as "canned hunting" (within fenced safari parks) or the use of hounds are described as unethical, and fishing tourism too has attracted recent negative publicity as it is said to be cruel. At the same time, however, many peripheral and indigenous communities around the world are strategising how to capitalise on consumptive forms of wildlife tourism. This book addresses a range of contentious issues facing the consumptive wildlife tourism sector across a number of destinations in Europe, North America, Africa, India, Arabia and Oceania. Practices such as baited bear hunting, trophy hunting of threatened species, and hunting for conservation are debated, along with the impact of this type of tourism on indigenous communities and on wider societies. Research on all aspects of "consumptive wildlife tourism" is included, which for the purposes of the book is defined to include all tourism that involves the intended killing of wildlife for sport purposes, and may include the harvest of wildlife products. This includes, among others, recreational hunting, big-game hunting and safari operations, traditional/indigenous hunting, game-bird shooting, hunting with hounds, freshwater angling and saltwater game fishing etc. This is the first book to specifically address tourist aspects of consumption of wildlife. It will appeal to tourism and recreation academics and students, tourism industry operators, community tourism planners and wildlife managers.

Wildlife tourism, of which game farms form an important part, is one of South Africa?s biggest tourism products with more game conserved and land under protection than all provincial and national parks combined. Therefore wildlife tourism, especially hunting, is a very important source of income for the country and contributes to job creation in rural provinces like Limpopo, Northern Cape, North West and Eastern Cape. This book places emphasis on hunting (trophy and biltong), game farm development for tourism purposes, game management, game farming and the law, and important future trends. The book is aimed at game farm owners, hunters, hunting outfitters, professional hunters and students in search of knowledge concerning game farm and hunting tourism.
