What will the airlines do with their policy now since they knee jerked?
Hunting is a $100M per year revenue for Zimbabwe. They knew the photo hunters could not generate this type of revenue.
15,000 hunters go to Africa each year- can the airlines stand to lose this many seat and crate revenue per year?
FWIW, I never saw where they banned it at all. Just that a hunter needed permission to bow hunt those animals. God Bless
Is that stat of 15,000 hunters correct? I would think the numbers would be much higher.
WTF are they gonna do? Make a "no-shoot" list? Lol!
That line was to save face only and cannot result in any tangible restriction.
I have read so much on this African lion thing that my brain hurts. I read in something that 15,000 hunters travel to Africa per year to hunt.
I have trying to equate that to dollars for equipment for a hunt, gun, bow, bullets, arrow, clothing, luggage, cases, etc. Then airfare, lodging, food, hunt cost, taxidermy cost, crate shipment cost, export & import of crate cost, etc. That ads up to a lot of money. I would think that more pressure could be exerted by related hunting providers & African outfitters to stop all of this anti hunting nonsense about African hunting.
