I also heard back from Ola Kronvall of Eden Hunting Tourism in Namibia (011-264 67-232630; www.eden-wildlife.com) about what went wrong on subscriber Mark Mills' hunt. You'll remember I told you that Mills arrived on the heels of Traut's departure from Eden and that his hunt did not go well, ending with him getting bit by a cobra as he climbed into bed. (See our December 2010 issue.) Kronvall says Mills' hunt was affected by several things. He says Mills had special requirements regarding the game he was after and that he passed on several buffalo. He says Mills also wanted to do a walking elephant hunt, which is difficult to do in the area Eden hunts due to the amount of water there. Kronvall says a communication breakdown is behind the failure of Mills' elephant hunt. Regarding the late leopard permit, Kronvall says that was a result of Traut's resignation. "We are very sorry about that," he writes in an e-mail to me. He claims, however, that this did not affect Mills' hunt because there were no good opportunities to shoot a leopard during the three to four days Mills had to wait for the permit.
