Finch...........not quite sure what your getting at. either the paint fumes are getting to me(repainting the bathroom) or im just missing what your point is?
im thinking you are taking what i said about CITES and applying it elsewhere that it has no corolation with. you are right, the countries of South Africa and Namibia have the strictest anti poaching efforts. but what was not said is that these two countries are also the ones who allow the hunting consessions to run their own anti poaching squads. these squads arent just out to stop the poaching of trophy game animals, they also remove untold thousands of snares ment for smaller critters destained for the meat markets.
the Congo has only started allowing hunters with in there borders on anything resembling a regular basis in the last few years. im sure they will wind up with a similar setup to its southern neighbors as time goes by. the same with Uganda and the Southern Sudan.
the top two countries to go hunting in Africa are South Africa and Namibia. so they have not eliminated hunting from their lands. South Africa is the most visited country for plains game and Namibia is very often a destination to hunt other plains game such as gemsbok which arent really found in South Africa. these two countries are the most visited hunting destinations because they have stable friendly governments.
