    That is an incredible gift you got.

    Glad your head is still up and looking forward.

    Hope that big Kudu jumps in front of you this trip.

    That is truly a once in a lifetime Bull. Congrats mate.
    Remember life is what you make it, grab it by the horns.
    I'm sure we're going to have more reports from you.
    Maybe next time with the kids

    Just got my copy of "Sports Afield" today. (March/April 2014) There is an article about Tony and this hunt complete with photos starting on page 97.

    Tony, again, congratulations!

    Tony warned me about the upcoming issue at SCI.

    There is a reason to head to the news stand tonight.

    Did the photos include the one with Tony lifting the ele up over his shoulders and carrying it out? Tony's a big ole roughneck!

    I got two copies in the mail and was really surprised to see my article in the very back. after reading all the other elephant hunts and getting that sense of elephant hunting always being available I then came to the end of the magazine and read the title of the story "the last elephant hunt" and realized it fit in perfectly. I thot it was a very well written story.
