A Desperate Decision

November 12th, 2019|

When hunting is removed from an area, the rural African is left with no choice. This excellent piece follows the decisions that must be made when this valuable asset is banned.

The Truth Matters

October 29th, 2019|

We have all heard the saying perception is reality. Hunters are experiencing persecution based on emotions, not science, like never before. But the truth is that hunters are the true conservationists.

The Game’s Uncertain Future

October 29th, 2019|

If politics supercedes science-based wildlife management, we will have placed the death sentence on Africa’s game.

A “Growing” Dilemma

October 29th, 2019|

Without the irreplaceable financial benefit that legal sport hunting brings to the rural people who live among the wildlife, the game will ultimately disappear, as surely as the human population swells to devour it.

The Unheard Voice

October 29th, 2019|

As the debate continues between the anti-hunting community and those who believe in the “Conservation Through Hunting” model, the unheard voice is the rural African who must live among the wild animals. It is these people who are most affected when politics supercedes science in the management of wildlife.

The Guardians

October 29th, 2019|

The future of both wildlife and wilderness in modern Africa continues to follow a proven path. Only when rural people living among the wildlife realize shared benefits of conservation based hunting in their area will they embrace the wildlife and work with safari operators to eliminate illegal poaching. Chartlon McCallum and the Dande Safari Area clearly paint this portrait of conservation success.

The Response

October 29th, 2019|

Anti-hunters and the hunting community share a common passion… their love of wildlife. However, the anti-hunter views wildlife through the nirvana-like bubble of national parks. The harsh reality is the vast majority of Africa’s game lives outside of these protected areas, a point skillfully made by professional hunter Paul Stones in this response to an anti-hunter. A must-watch for all hunters in the fight to protect our hunting heritage and the wildlife we love.

The CITES COP Summary

October 29th, 2019|

“The callous willingness to situationally ignore science and bend to the pressure of anti-hunting NGO’s must be challenged and changed.” There were some overwhelming patterns at the recent CITES conference of the parties. DSC Executive Director Corey Mason sat down to tell us his thoughts.

The Winds of Change

October 29th, 2019|

The difference between the pro-hunting versus anti-hunting argument comes down to a mindset, one driven by ideology, the other backed by science.

Wildlife Belongs to the Local People

October 29th, 2019|

The wildlife policies by countries who live with the game should be supported, not undermined, in the name of the animal rights agenda.

A Time For Action

October 29th, 2019|

The future is upon us. The fate of the world’s wildlife and the role the hunter-conservationist plays in that future hangs in the balance. The time for action is now.

Yellowstone Grizzly Issue

October 29th, 2019|

Dallas Safari Club believes that it is absolutely essential to the survival of wildlife and the preservation of wilderness to allow policy to be set by those who are trained and chosen, based on their expertise, to do so. This is but one battle in the Yellowstone grizzly controversy. It is far from the last. Common sense, sound science-backed policy will prevail. It must prevail.
