Anyone who has followed Lefol's battle in recent years to open Chad will know what a disappointment this is to him. At one point, Lefol was jailed over an incident in the field involving thrown axes and spears. He has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars prying the country open. "I am not closing hunting," Lefol said. "I still have rights to all my areas. I very definitely plan to go back."
Chad boasts a wide variety of interesting animals, including Barbary sheep, Dorcas gazelle, red-fronted gazelle, Senegal hartebeest, western greater kudu, korrigum, bohor reedbuck, western kob and others. We'll keep you posted on Lefol's efforts to resume hunting.
A word of warning about sub-legal elephant hunts in Botswana is in order. Seems this southern African country has created a citizen quota for elephants, and that has inspired a handful of fly-by-nights to offer international hunting clients cut-rate elephant safaris utilizing citizen licenses. The only problem with these hunts is, the ivory afterwards is not legally exportable. A word to the wise should be sufficient here. You can get a list of fully legal outfitters in Botswana from Debbie Peake, Executive Director of the Botswana Wildlife Management Association (E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
