TAP - I missed the pictures when you posted them. Must have been a fabulous safari to see all those great animals.
TMS - Are there any stories to go with these elephant photos? Would love to hear them.
Wheels, both these elephant were hunted August/September 2013 on a 2 on 1 21 day safari, Niassa, Mozambique. Rifles used, 416 rigby and 470NE. We drive the roads early morning until we pick up fresh tracks and decide if track is big enough, we usually want a track 22 inches up. On this safari we were after a bull we think will make 100 pounds, seen him earlier in the season, but as luck has it, we never got his track on the safari, when you hunting on 690 000 acres, you need to cover a lot of ground.
Congratulations on these great bulls. Thanks for letting us know some details.

The challenge of following a large elephant bull track and the reward of catching up to him. When you think you are close enough, take a few steps closer and raise iron sights!
