Boddington on Buffalo 1 & 2
I have just finished volume 2 of Boddington on Buffalo and truly enjoyed it!
Vol. 1 gives a lot of great general information while filming a few hunts along the way.
Vol 2. is still informative, but so much more entertaining.
Anyone else seen both?Tom
I also found them both to be well done.

Cape Buffalo is my thing, and I found both Boddington on Buffalo I&II both very well done. Not only the information there but the quality of the filming, naration, as well. This film is true broadcast quality, and is more to my likeing with it's documentry foremat.
I find the rack-um and stack-um films nothing more than boreing. Safaris are not like that, and Boddington's films have always been the whole safari not just the blood letting. The Safari, to me, is more than just shooting, and Boddington and company understand that fact. The old SPORTSMEN ON FILM was one of the early film maker who also understood that a safari is a happening that is also camp life, conversations around the camp fire in the Lappa in the evenings with sundowners, or around the meal table. Some coverage of camp staff, and their very compitant skills, right down to the boy who gathers fire wood, and huals water for baths.
Some information about the animal that is the quest of the safari in the film. There is a place where knowledgable facts about the types, and calibers of the rifles used, and why those were the choices. Some information about what is correct, and what is not correct aiming points on the animals hunted, and why!
I found both those films to be excellent, and will buy the Boddington on Elephant as well. I think these films are a gold mine for the guy who is just booking his first safari, and to clarify some of the mystories of safari that people who have been many times may not have understood prior!
