Problems of Hunt: Cameroon Air is terrible but necessary. When I missed my flight to Paris, Club Faune was exceptional in their service. They had a driver meet me, excellent hotel reserved and communicated very well on everything, They did this and the next day picked me up took me to lunch and delivered me to the airport at no charge. Club Faune was very up front on their red river hog population. They have very few and told me so when I booked the trip, still I had to try and we did. Seven early mornings of walking before finally finding them. Then it was a hogrenade with pigs running everywhere. I missed a very difficult shot, but such is hunting. It was very hot, 100-112 F everyday, as they told me it would be. The chalets are air conditioned, which is a lifesaver. Unfortunately Club Faune has a lease for the camp and it is managed by the owners manager, who insisted on shutting off the power/air conditioning at midnight. My ph and I would then leave our chalets and sleep in beds set up outside. It was pretty miserable. I have been assured this problem has been corrected by Club Faune once they were made aware of it.
Highlights of Hunt: I never thought I would ever be able to hunt Giant Lord Derby Eland. I had put myself on a cancellation hunt list a few years ago and someone finally cancelled allowing me to save over 50% and realize a dream. The eland hunt was fantastic. The population is extremely abundant. I shot my bull the second morning at 70 yards after a short stalk. We literally saw hundreds of them. This area has a tremendous game population. We saw many of everything but pigs. I got a very nice reedbuck but saw one that was exceptional. My roan was a very old, heavily scarred bull. The red flanked duiker was actually #2 on my list and we saw many every day and I was elated with the one I got. I could have shot several other trophies in other species too, hartebeast, korrigun, waterbuck, bush duiker but kept hoping for a pig. This is an excellent concession and hunt. While game populations are as high as I have seen anywhere in Africa, they are going down too fast. Poaching is rampant in spite of anti poaching effort. I found 5 poached animals in nine days and one edge of the concession was void of game due to cattle being illegally grazed. In spite of these issues I would not hesitate to go back and hunt here. Do it as soon as you can, it is currently a fantastic hunt and a fantastic organization. I cannot recommend Club Faune highly enough.
Equipment Recommendations: It was hot, damn hot for an Alaskan. Other than that I cannot think of any special equipment required
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? It isn't ever going to get any better. Club Faune runs an exceptional operation. My ph, Christophe, was highly experienced and a great hunting companion. Food and facilities were great. The game populations and trophy sizes are currently very very good. For how long, who knows. As I tell everyone, if there is anyway you can do it, do it now. With the political and religous unrest in the world, do it now before you can't.
