Just curious but does anyone know anything about this guy, his concession in Cameroon or the company? Hadn’t ever heard of them before and was wanting to see if anyone knew anything good, bad or ugly on him/them. Thanks for the help.

Yes I’m thinking about it so that’s why I was wanting to do some due diligence on the back end first. I saw the article you linked and appreciate it. Looks like they used to hunt under Pasinisi in TZ from what I can find. I’m going to reach out to him direct as well but thought I’d ask here also.

Not I.
I would certainly reach out to him directly. Get your feel for the man directly.
I've met him at SCI and he was knowledgable.
He has been working across west and east Africa for years with many outfits.
There are many more references in French on Google. Google Translate and you should get some more information.
Good luck.

I have met Arnaud through mutual friends a couple of times in France and he seemed honest and professional man. When I had the pleasure of doing a season with the Pasanisi family everyone spoke highly of him. So I would say go for it!!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
