    This is a question for all you guys/girls who may have hunted in Zimbabwe for buffalo in recent times. I am planning a trip there in 2011 for buff with Charlie Stanton. My question is what should I expect in the way of trophy size ? Goes without saying that the gods of hunting smile upon my efforts and give me the opportunity to take my intended quarry.

    What area will you be hunting with Charlie Stanton? I assume in Zimbabwe reasonable expections are different for the various areas.

    How long are you planning to hunt?, expectations decrease on a 5 day hunt as opposed to a dedicated 10 day buffalo hunt.

    Not sure what area the hunt will take place. This one of the thing I will be discussing with Charlie while he is in Australia early next year. My plan is for a 12-14 day hunt. This should allow additional time for plains game or potentially a second buff.
