    Haven't heard anything about closing. If I were going I'd be after western roan, hartebeest, and bushbuck along with the buffalo.

    I saw a report from Christophe. He's in the middle of his season there, so it might be a bit before he gets back here to let us know.

    Not yet. Other forest critters are higher on my list to hunt with Christophe.

    Western Buffalo are a lot of fun to hunt, I hunt them in Burkina Faso but the same will apply in Benin in terms of Quality of hunt.

    Hi Sir,

    I am just back from Benin. The hunting season went very well.
    I am not sure your friend got the good infos... hunting is going very well and it is the biggest income for the Pendjari national park.

    Best
    Christophe

    Glad Christo could inform us on this rumor. You never know about these things and nice to hear from the source.
