    Stan,

    You wrote a very good story. In it I see that you realized it is all about the effort and the experience. Ivory weight is just a bonus. Two well earned trophies.

    Congratulations!

    Yes, you are right, but it does not mean that I have given up a hundred pounder or two. Hahaha.

    Stan,
    You mentioned that you were planning another elephant hunt this year. Have you gone yet and do you have another story you are willing to tell us. This one is great.
