Namibia Leopard Hunting
For many hunters, a large male leopard is the trophy of a lifetime. Leopards are incredibly intelligent cats, and can be very difficult to hunt if you don’t pay attention to small details along the way. Along with being largely nocturnal, leopards also possess extremely good hearing and an excellent sense of smell. As a result, hunters must be willing to sit completely still and in complete silence for hours on end while in the blind, as the slightest movement may scare away a leopard approaching the bait.
- Mature males only.
- The United States, as well as some other countries, require a CITES permit for the importation of a leopard hunting trophy, which ideally should be applied for before the leopard hunt takes place.
- Predator trophy hunting may not take place during the period between 30 minutes after sunset in any day and 30 minutes before sunrise the following day and artificial light is prohibited.
- Namibia does not allow bowhunting leopard as dangerous game species cannot be hunted in Namibia by bow.
