Honey Badger Hunts
Twelve subspecies of Honey Badger occur from the Indian subcontinent, across the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa. Honey Badgers are well distributed over the continent of Africa, through a range of habitats from the deserts of southern Morocco and Algeria, to the forests of Central Africa all the way down through the shrubland and savannas to the Cape. They may be hunted in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Namibia.
Hunting Honey badger in Africa is mainly done in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Zimbabwe allows hunting honey badger in Africa at night with spotlights. In both South Africa and Zimbabwe, night hunting over bait is also popular. The usual method is to hang bait or to place a bait pile on the ground and build a blind. Trail cameras come in handy for hunting honey badger in Africa, because other animals can be attracted to the bait, and the camera will help in identifying which animal is on the bait. Honey badgers are frequently caught on trail cameras attempting to get to leopard baits that have been hung from a tree.
Hunting honey badger in Africa can be done with a relatively small caliber rifle, so it would be a good hunt for a son or daughter as the recoil would be light. A .243 caliber rifle is more than sufficient. Shot placement is important, as anything other than a heart/lung shot, or head shot will only wound the honey badger, and it could disappear into the bush. Be sure the animal is down for good, as walking up to a wounded honey badger might not be a good idea.Ask Us About a Hunt Request pricing and availability
