    My ultimate plainsgame hunt would be for a Lesser Kudu in Tanzania's Maasailand.

    An Elephant Bull in Botswana would be my choice for one of the Big 5.

    If I could only win the lottery...

    The will to succeed isn't nearly as important as the will to prepare to succeed.

    IMO opinion the best hunt is for tuskless cow in the thick jess.

    IMO the greatest trophy is a tie between a big, old, dark maned lion or a 100 pound elephant.

    Leopard and Lord Derby Eland, although Lesser Kudu, Bongo and Sitatunga arent far down the list.
    The journey is the reward.
