    We recently had a client take a bull Elephant well over 70 pounds which makes 3 over 60# for us this year. The client is preparing a post for
    African Hunting.com and The Hunting Report about the hunt which I will get up soon but I wanted to get some pics up for some of our friends and past clients to see.
    Before anyone asks the bull was fully exportable and came from a forrest area concession lease. DSCN0431.jpg DSCN0444.jpg DSCN0446.jpg

    Look forward to that story. Stan sure set the bar but any good story is worth reading.
    Thanks for the pictures.

    WOW, lovely Bull . . Ivory looks nice and thick.
    Can you provide any info about the two rifles in the second photo? . . the double, and the magazine rifle held by the staff member?

    I think the game scout has a 95 Mauser, I can see in the pic it cocks on closing so it is definitely pre-98. I have emailed Tony about the double but it looks to be a Cogswell with the reinforced frame. I will let you know when he responds. Sean
