Just the sound track takes me back to sitting in the blind.

Thanks.

CAR and the Congo I believe, at least as far as the biggest places to hunt, although I'm sure there are other countries too. None in SA that I'm aware of.

Look for hunts in the Cameroon Area seen some offers from there. trophy fee about 3500 euro which isn't bad it the 45000 euro in daily fees that gets you.

This map will give you a general idea of where they may be found.

Hunting currently CAR, Cameroon are your best bets to chase a Bongo.

Not really in RSA unless they are in a private collection. I have not heard of any being hunted in RSA.

I love those Spiral Horns.
Not an easy hunt nor an easy access. Part of the charm, but not for the faint of heart for sure.

CAR has seen some heavy conflict and Many Outfitters departed and stopped operations.
Most shifted to Cameroon. Some opportunity in Congo. (not DRC)

That charter plane will allow them to fly over much of the problem.

Where is their camp?

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
