    It is with a sad heart that I post this thread. Mark "Ellos" Ellement passed away this past weekend from an extended illness. Ellos was the partner and best friend of Mark Butcher. Together they made up Matapula Hunters in Zimbabwe. Ellos was a consummate PH. He loved the bush, especially while following the worn track of a old tusker. Many a hunters fondest memories of Africa include Ellos and his uncany skills as a PH. As many cherished memories are from nights around the campfire talking to Ellos about days in the Rhodesian army or uncanny leopards that were a special challenge. RIP peace Ellos. Saying prayers asking for comfort for your family. You will be missed.

    I had the great fortune of spending 3 weeks with Ellos hunting leopard and his passion elephant back in 2010. He will be missed
