    Just got the news, a PH I hunted with last year was mauled by a lion.

    Fortunately it was not serious, and he s back to work, with a bandaged arm. However, it could have been much worse.

    Shoot straight and hunt safely guys !

    I will get more details from a friend when he comes back from SA, as far as I know, he was going to give a finishing shot to an apparently dead lion.

    As one of the old timers said " It s the dead ones who finally get you"

    The PH will need further surgery on his hand, which has not healed well.

    I am still waiting on further details about how the accident took place.

    James, the incident took place in RSA, however, the PH does not want his name in Internet Forums, and I have to respect that.

    Whenever I get more details on the incident, I will share it with you guys.
