To keep your nerve...
'modern' hunters [skills/rifles?] :)
or what about this situation?
comparing hunters [skills/rifles] of 'old' ?
or is this an unfair generalization of the differend times? :confused:
In the top picture the Elephant is just frustrated that he has not been fed his peanuts yet.
In the second the Elephant is actually charging!
And - the second is a painting, showing how the painter wanted to show the situation. In those days, depictions of big game hunting had to be dramatic, life-or-death pictures, independent of their accuracy. Don't get me wrong, the picture is thrilling and dramatic, and I would love to hang it in my man-cave, but it is not a photo.
Going to tap him on the forehead with the stock?
Universal sign of surrender?
Elephants have got to be incredibly tolerant animals to put up with all the shenanigans.
Look like they are squating to crab a mountain to hide behind. Don't think that stock is going to do the job my friend.
You have some really good pics there observe, thanks for sharing them all
