Bowhunting in Namibia
Game laws in this country were ratified to include bowhunting in 1997. Dangerous game was not included, but minimum Kinetic energy requirements are now in place for small, medium and large plains game. The foot/lbs requirements are 25, 40 and 60 respectively. Clients can now bowhunt the smallest Dik-Dik (15 lbs. Body weight) to the largest Eland (2000 lbs. Body weight).
Located on the southwest coast of the African continent, Namibia is one of the driest countries on earth. Formerly know as South-West Africa, under South African control, Namibia received its independence in 1990. Today Namibia is developing into an important sport hunting country with both good game populations and diversity. It is quickly gaining popularity with bowhunters. Namibia is also home to some fantastic tourist destinations such as the Etosha National Park, the Caprivi Game Reserve and the famous Skeleton Coast.
