In Central African Republic Jean Pierre Bernon of Club Faune (http://www.fauna-safari-club.com/) he has taken over Daniel Koudoume's old hunting area. Actually, he has leased it from Koudoume's family. You'll recall operator Rudy Lubin formerly worked here with Koudoume but moved to another area when Koudoume died of a heart attack in 2011. Lubin had told me that he simply was not in the position to take on the opening of the hunting area, rebuilding of camps and the administrative responsibilities of Koudoume's end of the business. The area is located in the center of the country and includes four hunting blocks and six camps. This gives Bernon additional quota for bongo, sitatunga, giant forest hog and Lord Derby eland.
Bernon also claims to have found two new spots for forest sitatunga in one of the concessions he has been hunting, and says he made a bid for a concession on the border that will allow for combo hunts for Lord Derby eland and sitatunga at the same time.
