Kalyan saab,
That looks like culling to me rather than a trophy hunt.
A truck load of springbok.

It does look like a cull hunt.

Members who may be upset looking at the number of animals in the truck and the processing shed,

There is a carrying capacity for an area.An area can only support certain number of animals.When numbers go up drastically,it involves negative implications for all the animals living there and also for the habitat.Hence it becomes inevitable that certain numbers are culled to keep the animal population and the land healthy.It is a planned and well thought-out aspect of game management. So,please do not jump to conclusion that the hunters were merely blood thirsty and killed so many animals.

What happens with cull hunts is that the game managers offer the chance to outsiders willing to do the culling for a fee which is less than normal trophy hunting. Some people go on these cull hunts and that is what CK Kalyan's pictures are about.

May not be for everyone but it is there and it is unavoidable.

Best-
Vikram

i'd rather not.
expenses vary depending upon how far you are going, what season, how many and which animals you want, what kind of living arrangements you want, how much you will tip the staff etc.
once you make up your mind and start contacting the professional hunters and outfits, you will get an idea for yourself.
hope this helps.
