"I had a very nice time hunting with these people," Bernon says. "Mr. McClure is an incredible shot. I'm impressed!"
We told you about Bernon's plan to open France to international hunting this past May, and we predicted good success. In that issue, we also nominated Bernon for our new Hunting Entrepreneur Honor Roll, designed to recognize hunting outfitters who make an exceptional effort to widen the horizons of world hunting. France, of course, has always had resident hunting, but no one to our knowledge before Bernon had made a serious effort to create opportunities for international clients to hunt there.
At this writing, we have not spoken to McClure (he is literally still on the plane home as this is written), but we understand he is satisfied with his hunt. A Hunting Report subscriber, he has already indicated through family members that he plans to send us a report on his experiences in France. If, as expected, McClure feels his hunt was successful, Bernon will need only four more satisfied international clients to meet our requirements for being named to the Honor Roll.
