Looking around the african outfitters I'm noticing an increase in the number of 'designer animals' available to hunt. Once upon a time you could hunt a springbok. Now you can hunt a normal, black, white and copper coloured springbok. Normal blesbok and white blesbok. Even white lion. All they are selectively line bred animals. They are not a new species, hybrid or integrade etc.
This is nothing new, man has chosen to line breed domesticated animals and even pets for centuries. I'm sure they'll be a number of 'collectors' out there that will be happy to pay upto $1200 for a copper springbok as it's something different.
What do SD hunters think about this? Could you be bothered trying for a new colour variant of an antelope? Is it a clever way for outfitters to exploit 'collecctors'?
Will this ever happen heere in the UK? Will we ever see albino munties offered?
