In memoriam - Legendary Chasseur Professionnel (PH) Alain Lefol has passed away

Thank you, Jerome. A sad day indeed. Alain defined safari in West Africa. I hope his family finds peace in his personal drive, accomplishments, and what he meant as a real man to so many.
Very sad news and sincere condolences to Jerome and Alain’s family. Alain was a tough and gutsy man who operated safaris in some incredibly challenging countries and environments. One can only imagine how many dreams he made come true for himself and his clients. My PH in CAR, Jacques Lemaux, had great respect and admiration for Alain and spoke highly of him.
Thank you, everyone, for your message, and thank you too, Jerome, for the post. My dad had a really full life and numerous adventures I had the chance to share some of them.
He wasn't scared of a new challenge and was always optimistic.

We will continue what he started and try to make him proud.

I ran across a message from you a couple of years ago while I was going through old emails. I have arranged a second bison hunt in Nebraska in September 2024, about 6-years after the first, when my supply of bison meat was exhausted. My email is [redacted].

If those Schells rings fare still available, I could use them. I'm willing to pay for the shipping.
