    Hi everyone,

    Yes, I am back from CAR, safe, in good shape, full of sotries and pictures.
    Ok right, it was not so easy, you all know what is going on in the country, it was mentally hard for us but we all managed to have good hunts in safe conditions. Fortunately CAWA's area is far and remote with no access, we were quite safe and the hunters had good time.

    Here are some pictures of the season.

    Some more will come later. If you have any question feel free to ask me.
    all the best and good hunting
    Christophe

    Hi Jerome,
    How are you? How is Namibia going?
    Well, it was quite an unusual hunting season but we had some good hunts especially on bongo, we saw a lot of them....
    I will write a blog in a few days..
    Cheers.

    Thanks Spike.t, yes this roan is big, in fact it is the biggest I have ever seen..... 33 1/2'' should be high in the top ten.
    Cheers

    Welcome back from CAR.
    Happy to hear you are all fine.
    Some great animals in the pictures.
    Specially the Bongo and Eland pictures make my pulse speed up :)

    My biggest dream is to someday go and hunt those 2 with my bow.

    I was going to say. That Roan is a brute. Incredible.

    Great pictures Christophe. Awesome trophies.

    Glad CAWA's area is deep in the woods and everyone is out safe and sound.

    Welcome back and glad to hear you are safe and sound. I was in Gemena (DRC) evacuating wounded RSA soldiers from CAR a couple of weeks ago. Kinda nice to see that the hunting is still going well there, hope things get better in CAR. Looking forward to the stories behind those photos!
