Our friend Mark Hampton has just returned from another successful hunting adventure where he took this dwarf forest buffalo. I'll let Mark chime in with some details. Congrats Mark, looks like another great adventure!

Thanks for posting Darrell! I just returned from Cameroon hunting the rainforest with pygmies 40 miles from Congo. I have been fortunate to take five different species of African buffalo -- Cape (Zimbabwe) West African Savannah (Benin) Central African Savannah (Central African Republic) Nile (Uganda) and now the dwarf forest buffalo from Cameroon. I took this bull with an Encore in 375 JDJ using Cor-Bon 270 gr. DPX ammo. This is a unique experience in a very remote location. Following tracks with the pygmies was quite a treat.
