    Hello everyone,

    My name is Erik Nyman and I am new here on AH. I work as a professional hunter in the Central African Republic with Central African Wildlife Adventures (CAWA).

    I wanted to share some of my favorite trophies that me and my clients managed to take during the season 2012.

    First of all, check out this incredibly beautiful Lord Derby's Eland! It is probably the oldest eland that I have ever seen. Just look at that amazingly thick neck and super-sized dewlap! The horns were extremely worn down and measured only 39" on both sides. He was taken with bow and arrow in the Ngoy area in the CAWA concession. A true hunting experience and trophy of a life-time!

    Secondly. Just another beautiful Central African Savannah Buffalo. I know that it has been said many times before, but the fact that the buffaloes may differ so much from one to the other in this fantastic part of Africa, is just so fascinating and amazing! When taking a buffalo track in the morning, you never no what or how it's going to turn out to be. Big, small, black, red... Everything is possible!

    These were only a few things that I wanted to share with you for now. Looking forward to getting to know some of you fellow hunters and adventurers better.

    Also thank you Jerome for this nice website! You're doing a great job!

    /Erik

    Hi Mike,

    As always with these sorts of matters in Africa, everything is going ridiculously slow. At this present point in time, Erik and David are still held in custody and are understandably quite fed up with the situation but however... It seems like we're actually starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Everybody is doing their best trying to speed up the process by meeting up with different ministers and other people.

    To sum up; We believe that the end of this whole thing is near now. I am in contact with Erik, Emelie and David regularly and they are still going strong, smiling and positive about the situation.

    I would advice everyone who wants to keep up to date on the situation to visit Central African Wildlife Adventures

    It's a blog where Emelie is trying to share some more concrete information about what's going on and what the plans for the future are.

    Thank you so much for your concern and caring, Mike!

    Welcome to AH Erik.
    Incredible old bull. Congratulations.
    Looks like a perfect shot placement.


    One day, ......

    Looking forward to your continued contributions.



    Have kept up with Emelies' blog and it appears there is some light leaking in.
    I hope the families have obtained some support and assistance.
