It has a great variety of game species including several rare ones; nice climate, easy gun import procedure, stable economics and politics, and a well-developed sustainable hunting industry and infrastructure.
The hunting season in Namibia runs from March through November.
There are two options:

A Hunter’s Prayer: We pray our sight be straight and our aim be true. We pray for no pain to the game we pursue. We thank thee Lord for this land. We thank thee for the sights in our stands. We pray for safety one and all. We pray we may return next fall. S. Elliot
