Remember that incident we reported on in Central African Republic
in August 2011
when Club Faune closed one of its hunting camps due to marauding thieves? Well subscriber Miguel Madero was one of the clients in camp during that incident, and he is unhappy with Club Faune's Jean Pierre Bernon for his entire experience and the way a make-up hunt offer was handled.
Madero hunted the Zamza concession in January 2011. His principal targets were lion, leopard and Lord Derby eland, along with several other species. Madero and PH Jean-Pierre Leroux called in and shot a lion the first morning of Madero's hunt. But after that, he says things went very wrong. "It was very difficult to see any eland trophies because the grass was not burned," he says. "This was the first problem - no main trophy. The same story happened with the buffalo."
