    Check out or rather admire this magnificent orange animal!

    My friend and PH Fran輟is Guillet who hunts with me in Central African Republic took this magnificent 37 inch (94,5 cm) Bongo last January with his client.

    This Bongo will apparently be number 2 SCI and number 1 Rowland Ward...

    Here below is the number 1, now number 2, Rowland Ward Bongo that I hunted with a client in March 2007 in CAR. This extremely old, I mean old, Bongo measured 36 2/8 inches.

    Outstanding animals in both cases, Christophe.

    You must have some very dedicated members within your hunting crew to be producing results such as these in what must be challenging conditions.

    Congratulations to all involved.

    In the spiral horns I have taken, kudu, bushbuck, nyala and sitatunga. If I could someday hunt bongo, now that would be something. Nice trophies for sure!

    thanks, yes they are fantastic animals and trophy, I can stop watching and hunting them. They are part of the spiral horns family but really Bongo is something special for all the hunter, when they walk to their trophy bongo they are very quiet and look, and look without a word...... something different!!!

    Christophe...The Bongo looks to be a very nice trophy...the trouble is one have to be selective in the game one hunts...I am sure an old fart will be able to go Bongo hunting one day....
