The hunting would take place in the Red Sea Hills, Hollek says, and may possibly include several species of gazelles as well as ibex and aoudad. Hollek says gun importations do not seem to be a problem, and Egypt will issue CITES permits for all the species. He was still working out details and ironing out an agreement, so he did not have any hunt package information worked out yet.
Hollek has a track record for opening places to international hunting. Vietnam is one of his most recent successes. In fact, his latest news on this country is that the authorities there have agreed to allow hunters to bowhunt. One of the problems of hunting Vietnam has been that you cannot import your firearm, but must borrow rifles and shotguns in-country. Hollek says bowhunters will be able to bring all of their own gear. The hunting will be done by stalking the jungles and sitting in stands, he says. The most likely target for bowhunters is Asian water buffalo. The forest hogs and deer species may be more iffy, Hollek says.
