Thanks for sharing with us. Wonderful report! Smiler

Can one expect to get an opportunity on GFH in this area or is it more of a chance encounter?

Ross;

Another fantastic safari. Loved your trophies and report. I wished I were a 20 years younger (or maybe 30) and I'd put it on my list, but I'll have to be content to read your reports.

From a woman's perspective, would your wife go back? I know she goes along on all your hunts and is pretty tough...

Thanks for the report, best regards, D. Nelson

Ross, you are THE MAN! Great hunt, animals and report....WOW! Ditto for your son, great shooting!

Yellow-Backed Duiker….oh man…will he be a full mount? Your trophy room is going to be out of this world with what you have collected over the past two years. Have you received your bongo’s yet, and how will you be mounting them?

I truly admire you and your family’s adventurous spirit. You are an inspiration!

Dogcat,

When I saw the picture with your wife in it I thought 'wow, she must be tough!'
CAR is no place for ladies. LOL

Having been there twice your pics and descriptions were dead on. If you should ever talk with Erik again ask him about our slide down the hill while in a tent in the middle of the night during one of their monsoons. That was a night I'll never forget. Walking thru the forest dragging a wet tent with no light...

The other thing you noted that hit me was you listed the roan there as one of the harder animals to take. You couldn't be more right on. I really wanted one but never could get close enough. Erik's dad took a monster of one several years back. He may have had it in his photo book by the dinner table.

Love the pics of the Lord Derby Elands. Beauties! But you better have a large open spot to put it. Trust me.

Congrats again on your hunt and luckily you were able to escape the Bangui airport officials to get back home.
