http://www.scout.com/outdoors/hunting/story/1783110-africa-vs-texas ~ This article from Scout compares the relative advantage of game hunting in Texas and Africa, with special reference to accommodations, range of species, landscape and overall conditions. The case for Texas centers on comfort and convenience, as well as the availability of what are described as “Africa extinct species”. Africa is touted as being the sole location for hunting dangerous game.
We're planning to take a 4-6 week road trip from California to Austin, TX (to visit Mark's family over the Christmas/New Year holidays) and back. We will mostly be driving through Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas, possibly southern Utah, probably not Colorado as the trip is already getting longer and longer. Current plans are to roughly take 10 out and 40 back hitting Scottsdale and/or Tucson, Bosque del Apache, White Sands, Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe Mountains, Davis Mountains, possibly Big Bend though I'm having difficulty finding accommodations close to Christmas, Santa Fe, Taos, Petrified Forest, Monument Valley, then either Sedona or up into southern Utah. Just wanted to know if there are any particular wildlife areas on or close to our route that I should be looking into. I may even be persuaded to detour into Colorado. Thanks!

The Second Ark Foundation said that the rhinos wouldn't be hunted. They would be kept under surveillance, their horns microchipped, their DNA sequences stored in a database.
