    This is a very good thread. Can you imagine walking up on a bull like one of the seven?

    About to start our elephant season, hopefully we will be able to show that there are still big tuskers out there. Tomei, the tracker standing in the middle deserves most of the credit, most incredible tracker I have ever seen.

    Simon,

    Nice ivory. Thanks for sharing the photo.

    Would you mind letting us know the weight of the middle pair? Not many like them around these days.

    Have a great season.

    All the best.

    Some truly magnificent trophies.

    I really love the vintage photos, would have been awesome to hunt those big tuskers back in the day!

    18.5 Inces at the lip. 4.1 feet sticking out… regardless, it was a fantastic hunt, very challenging, a great team and a gentleman of a client and a magnificent old bull.

    Alex and Simon,

    Both of you are having some nice success. Congratulations.

    Wish it was importable to the US.

    All the best.

    Alex, I am confident you are going to be one of the best young PH'S on elephant, your heart is in the hunt. I have watched you grow in strength to strength. You have shown my PH's a lesson or two, something we true Ph's are willing to do.
