    It has been a long hunting season but so rewarding. Hunters, huntress and PH are all very happy.
    Here is the summary of the season with pictures.
    Enjoy.

    Wow lots of ladies hunting with you. That is a testament to your operation and how good your camps are. It would be nice to have a hunting report by one of them. Some neat trophies for sure.

    Sure, the camp is just great.
    Did you check the big bushbuck and the huge nagor reedbuck?

    The camp has air conditioning now I believe!

    I will say this for the French. They seem to believe that being in the middle of nowhere is not an excuse for serving bad food or wine.

    Beautiful animals Christophe - I really love the roan and the bushbuck!

    Absolutely Hank. If you are working with the French in most any field, when it is lunch time, things come to a stop and you enjoy your meal!

    Hello Mister student... Amazing, this year was not so hot and we had some early rain... but the rooms have air conditioning yes... and sure the food is even better, especially the desert, hahaha. of course we are hunting a bit... after lunch.
    Bon courage et a bientôt.
