Lion Hunt in Cameroon.

Cameroon is one of the most unusual countries on the black continent, which could rightly be called “Africa in miniature.” For it is difficult to find a country in the north of which you can meet the real savannah, and in the south – equatorial rainforests. As part of the Cameroonian flora, more than 9000 species of higher plants, the Fauna is represented by 1000 species of birds. Over 300 species of mammals are also represented here. The hunting season in Cameroon begins on December 1 and lasts until May 30. The flight for hunters from Moscow takes up to 40 hours and includes two transfers.

An indispensable condition for hunting in Cameroon is the availability of an international certificate for vaccination against yellow fever. A visa can be obtained in Moscow in 7-8 days. In every hunting camp there is an opportunity, and even a choice of rental weapons for all types of hunting.

The weather at this time is humane: hot, but not very. In February, 30-35C during the day, and 10-15C at night.
Leo enters the African Big Five trophies. It also includes buffalo, rhino, leopard and elephant. Which hunter does not dream to replenish his collection of hunting trophies African buffalo with these animals? And it is real! When hunting for a lion, the priority is the device of bait. What it is? The bait is suspended on a tree: as a rule, the carcass of some ungulate. Nearby is being set up. Privada is checked daily. And as soon as traces of the lion near the bait are discovered, the hunter immediately sets in for an ambush. But first, of course, you need to get some large antelope, and even better savannah buffalo.

Almost all hunting in Africa, with rare exceptions, is a classic trail. That is, we track a trace, and we find a beast on the track. So this is an active running hunt. The endurance of its participants often depends on success. In addition to the hunters, the team consists of a piiich (a professional hunter), as well as a driver, a porter and a tracker.

For a bait, a Rouen is a large antelope, the largest after Iceland. The weight of the old male can reach up to 270kg. The Buffon goat will also fit, it is a medium-sized antelope weighing up to 70 kg. Its population density is high in Cameroon and for a bitch it is a suitable target. The heads of these animals can be used in taxidermy, they will always remind you of a great hunt in Africa and will complement the collection of your hunting trophies. You can order the production of a stuffed animal in a taxiderm workshop Arttrofey.
Big Five Africa What about weapons and ammunition for hunting African animals? The gauges are large, the beast here is very strong. If you plan to hunt only antelopes, any of the three hundredth magnums (for example: 300 “Win ​​Mag”) or the classic African 375 Holland & Holland Magnum is enough. If you plan to hunt for larger Rouen or Iceland antelopes, a caliber of at least 375 Holland & Holland Magnum is recommended. For hunting a buffalo, a lion, a hippo, caliber 416 Rigby is required. Now about optics. One should not get carried away by large multiples; ultra-long shots in Cameroon are the exception rather than the rule. It is enough to have a sight with a maximum magnification of 4-6 times. The minimum multiplicity must be selected as close as possible to unity. Especially if you plan to hunt dangerous animals (elephant, buffalo), because you may need a quick shot offhand.
In the African shroud you clearly feel that you are completely dedicated to hunting. Early morning rise, hang up late in the evening and all the time on the hunt. On a jeep, on legs, in a hitch. Fatigue is serious. But how many impressions from what he saw, from nature, plants and animals, birds and insects. Is it possible at least for a second to regret having seen such a thing in life?
