Up in Chad, we're happy to report that PH Alain Lefol (reachable in the US through Beverly Wunderlich at 303-794-4485; or in Paris at 011-33-1-34739405) has recovered nicely from the legal setback last year that saw him wrongly incarcerated in N'Djamena on charges that he shot, or caused to be shot, a nomad that drove cattle into his hunting area. Lefol has been completely cleared of all charges and his right to hunt various areas has been re-confirmed. In all, Lefol says he conducted four safaris in Chad last year. Two were 21-day affairs and two ran for 28 days. He was 100 percent on Barbary sheep, he says. Plus, he took a wide variety of other animals.
We have received subscriber reports on two of the above-mentioned safaris. One is from subscribers Douglas and Carol Norman who hunted both Central African Republic and Chad with Lefol in February-March, taking two Barbary sheep, two giant eland and other animals. The second report is from subscriber Daniel Y. Butler, who hunted Chad only, taking a Barbary sheep, a Dorcas gazelle, a western greater kudu and a red-fronted gazelle. He gives the hunt all good marks.
