African Hunting Gazette

African Hunting Gazette

Oct-Nov-Dec 2020

Our Objective is simple and clear - to promote hunting in Africa. And everything we do, focuses on this central mission. We believe that for the passionate hunters they are either hunting, or spend their time wishing they were hunting. This publication helps them get through that time when they are not actually in the bush. Our reader is more committed, more passionate and has tremendous interest in just about everything to do with the African Safari. From cover to cover the AHG brings you everything you need to know about hunting the great continent of Africa. From the southern tip of Africa to the northern reaches of Ethiopia, we go about pursuing our simple and unambiguous objective.

it’s about…you

If ever there was a product fairly and squarely prepared for whoever hunts and loves Africa, it would be this magazine, the AHG. Cover to cover, it’s there to promote Africa and her hunting. We also promote outfitters, the people who offer and try to provide the very best hunting experiences for their clients, asking them to encourage their clients to contribute stories of their hunts for everyone’s interest and enjoyment. And to a certain extent over the year, with some luck. Occasionally I have begged (unsuccessfully I might add) when there was a tremendous story that I heard about and wanted to get it shared. Seems like much of what happens in this personal and passionate sector is destined to remain a secret among the few involved. I respect…

preparing for the future

The situation: With mailing costs going up, advertising income evaporating, there are still two things we can count on: 1) The magic of African safaris - still on offer through professional hunting outfitters 2) The passionate support of our readers and subscribers So, with this in mind, we are suggesting a way forward in such uncertain times. We would rather be open and frank, ahead of time, with a plan, than explain and apologize afterwards when nothing can be done. Our plans include 3 steps: Step 1 - Moving AHG to a combination of both print AND a digital edition. Print – because we all love the printed hard copies, and digitally because it enables extra content while offering new opportunities to deliver that content and reach new audiences, along with economic benefits. Step 2 -…

news & letters

Hello Richard I read with great interest your PH Q+A. Why not do a similar article with clients? Much of the same line of questions would apply. People like myself have gained a lot of experience and stories. Other folks, even on the first safari, would have a completely different perspective. You have a vast pool of life members and subscribers to draw from. Have an exit interview at Afton House? Send an email Q+A form? Phone interview? I have taken the liberty of doing a sample interview of just me, William Archibald, based on your PH Q+A. Q&A: It’s all about the client! AHG: Tell us about you, and your family. My mom and dad were born and raised in Philadelphia. Dad never hunted until after World War II when his family moved to the South…

covid-19 pandemic wreaking havoc on african wildlife and biodiversity

Dr Peter Lindsey from the Mammal Research Institute at the University of Pretoria in South Africa is the lead author on this collaborative publication by a total of 23 authors with intimate knowledge of the wildlife and biodiversity situation in Africa. While there have been published reports of wildlife benefitting in some parts of the world due to reduced human activities, these authors contend that, in Africa, the net conservation impacts of COVID-19 will be strongly negative. They describe how the crisis is creating a ‘perfect storm’ of reduced funding, restrictions on the operations of conservation agencies, cutting off the earnings of rural communities, and elevated human threats to nature resulting therefrom.

oribi from “game animals of the world”

English: Oribi Latin: Ourebia ourebi German: Oribi French: Ourébi Spanish: Oribi MEASUREMENTS Total length: 1.1 m (3.6‘) Tail: 6 – 15 cm (2.4” – 5.9”) Shoulder Height: 60 cm (2.0‘) Weight: 14 – 20 kg (31 – 44 lb) (Male on average 2 kg (4 lb) lighter than female.) DESCRIPTION Many races have been described, but most reflect individual variation and most are no longer recognised. Because of size and coloration, Haggard’s oribi (O. o. haggardi) of coastal Kenya is recognised, but it is not huntable. The usual coat color is rufous yellow-orange with white underparts and inner thighs. The hair is longer on the back and has a somewhat curly appearance. From a distance it is often confused with steenbok, but the proportionally shorter ears and short, black-tipped tail are diagnostic. The ram carries short, erect, and partly ridged horns. DISTRIBUTION It…

annie’s hunt

I'll admit it. I've fallen in love with Africa as so many others have. Reading books on hunting Africa while growing up by all the greats did nothing but fan the flames to one day see what it was all about. I had been back from Namibia for about 6 months in 2016 when I started making plans for the next trip. Who would I invite to share the next trip with me? I planned on going back in 2019 but the friends I enjoy hunting with would be finishing their hunt the week before I arrived. The answer hit me like a bolt. Would my daughters be interested? I raised them by myself and they had started going hunting with me at an early age. Both are avid shooters…
