What is a Rhino Dart hunt?
Accompanied by an experienced PH (professional hunter) and a wildlife veterinarian, the hunter enjoys safari tracking a rhino on foot. A Rhino Dart Hunter enjoys all the thrills of a real hunt and more, stalking the rhino much closer than any rifle hunter normally would feel comfortable with, to the point where he can get a clear shot. The dart is usually shot using a 32-guage rifle, immobilizing the animal within minutes.
Once down, the rhino undergoes certain procedures such as photographs, measuring and micro-chipping. The wildlife veterinarian monitors the rhino while all these procedures are taking place. After the rhino is given the antidote, the hunting party is well out of the way, when the Rhino gets back on its feet and off it goes.
All things considered, darting safaris have created a win-win situation for all, while the rhino owner and hunter also derive income.
The client is able to complete his “Big Five” at a more affordable rate as Safari Club International recognizes this form of hunting for the SCI record book. In addition the rhino owner benefits as his animal is micro-chipped, thereby ensuring effective monitoring and anti-poaching.
Darting a rhino is now an affordable hunt in the $9000 range by comparison to the traditional hunt costing $20,000 to $50,000 or more. This is a once in a lifetime hunt. For info on a Rhino Dart Hunt, contact Bob Anderson at 307-473-1268 or visit us on the web by clicking here.
