Remember my report in the July issue about subscriber Archie Nesbitt taking a mountain nyala with a bow in Ethiopia? The brute measured 36½ inches and had 11-inch bases, making it rank somewhere around No. 20 in the SCI Record Book. Well, a second subscriber has scored on mountain nyala with a bow. He's Adrian Erickson. He connected on a 36-inch nyala this past July while hunting with Jason Roussos of Ethiopian Rift Valley Safaris, the same PH who took Nesbitt afield.
Both subscribers deserve a round of applause. Erickson perhaps deserves a bit of extra applause for having also taken a bongo and giant eland with a bow recently. And, no, he did not allow the use of dogs to track his bongo. The PH for the bongo and eland hunts was Mike Currie with Club Faune.
Get in a good safari somewhere in Africa this year!
