Bisbees Conservation Journal Q2 2015

Then it hit me, the irony of it – “these are the big bad hunters that only care about sport hunting and having a trophy on the wall – and yet here we are petitioning the Creator for a completely opposite result of what normally goes on in a hunt.” Just then - the bongo’s lungs quickened, he struggled to his feet and began walking away slowly like a drunk. I looked again and I saw tears (I won’t mention any names), sighs of relief, smiles and then a group clap along with a few bro hugs. As Chip and I walked back to the jeep he said, “Brian – I’ve hunted all over the world and I’ve never experienced anything as intense as that – that was the best hunt of my life – thank you.” I replied “not bad for a day on the moon, a bongo – not so much from the Congo.” $23,000 was raised for endangered animals through this “catch and release conservation hunt” and 100% of the funds will go to conservation and not overhead because of the Founder’s Circle of donors that has been established for Bisbee’s Fish & Wildlife Conservation Fund. We want to make this a movement instead of a one-time event!
