Fieldcraft: Destination Africa – Episode 2

Fieldcraft: Destination Africa – Episode 2, The Hunt Begins

The most common misperception around hunting in Africa, is that hunters chase and shoot their prey from trucks. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Hunters drive around massive ranches – this one the size of Manhattan – until they’ve spotted the animals. Then, they hunt and stalk their prey for miles on foot, through brush and rough terrain.

But WHY is hunting in Africa so necessary? Meat is scarce for many; homeless camps are prevalent and particularly in need. The hunters bring their kill back to these camps where the meat is welcomed & quickly taken. These hunts feed the local villages.
