Bow Hunting in Mozambique

Bow hunting in Mozambique has been legal for many years. There are no restrictions on primitive weapons for hunting in Mozambique, so long bows, compound bows and crossbows are all legal. There are no requirements for bow weights or arrow weights, but common-sense dictates that some type of guide like South Africa’s bow requirements be followed. This is especially important when hunting dangerous game and Mozambique offers some of the best free-range bow hunting for dangerous game in modern Africa.

Mozambique offers the best free-range bow hunts for Cape buffalo that is available today.  With vast herds of buffalo roaming the sawgrass swamps in areas like Coutada 10 and 11, the numbers are there to support spot and stalk bow hunting for these challenging beasts.  The high saw grass provides the perfect cover to be able to sneak up close to a bull for a shot with a bow. There is nothing quite like one of these Zambezi Delta buffalo bow hunts and it is a unique experience that should not be missed.

Mozambique is also one of the only countries that allow elephants to be hunted with a bow.  Mozambique receives an annual CITES quota for elephant ivory exportation but at the present time, the USFWs is not allowing elephants that were hunted in Mozambique to be imported into the US.

There is a good variety of plains game available in Mozambique that can be hunted with a bow.  Mozambique has a good population of both the common and Roosevelt nyala and many of the largest specimens taken each year come from Mozambique. Mozambique also has good a population of Cape eland and kudu.  Of special interest to bow hunters are the small antelopes that are available to be taken with a bow.  These include the blue duiker, natal forest Duiker (red duiker), suni, oribi and common duiker.  Northern areas also have populations of Sharp’s grysbok.  For those seeking the tiny ten with a bow, the high populations of these small antelope make this a good choice for the bow hunter.

Finally, Mozambique has good populations of leopards and lions.  Hunting leopard with dogs is legal in Mozambique and is a highly effective method of getting a leopard into a tree for a shot by a bow hunter. Lions may be hunted on bait from a blind or elevated stand and provide a heart thumping experience for the adventurous bow hunter.

"I looked long and far for a good deal on a lioness hunt.  By far, Discount African Hunts had the best price.  I had the hunt of a lifetime and took a beautiful lioness at close range with my bow.  The Professional Hunter was first class, the lodge was first class and my whole experience was unbelievable.  I will book with John Martins when I return to Africa to hunt leopard  in Zimbabwe.
