On Target: History and Hunting in Central Africa
While noted elephant hunters have made areas like Karamojo, Oubangui-Chari, and Aouk River well known, no writer has ever produced a book on the history and hunting of these regions until now. Add to this the fact that LeNoel is an experienced professional hunter, a good writer-historian and you get a vastly interesting, informative and exciting book. Popular trophies such as bongo, Lord Derby eland, dwarf buffalo, etc. are found only in these remote, hard to penetrate Central African rainforests or deserts. Those who hunted here had to be hardy and full of heart.because the game and the country demanded 100% of what any man could give. Read the stories of intrepid big game hunters and their clients, and of others who lived in remote areas, keeping their "rifles in the bush" always ready for that meeting with a 100-pounder, etc. ON TARGET is a superb book on shooting big game animals in Central Africa, backed up by sound and interesting research. Like Tony Dyer's Men for All Seasons, this book provides a picture of history and hunting in a fascinating part of the world.
Until now, very little has been written in English about the people and animals in Congo, CAR, Chad and Cameroon or about this region's unique species. "This book by French Professional Hunter Christian LeNoel does all that and provides some entertaining stories of hunting man-killers and rogues, 100-pound tuskers and record book trophies. The translation and editing were excellent. I recommend this book." Bill Quimby, Safari Magazine.
