Pigmy's have killed many elephants with their spear. How it was done. A pigmy would locate a herd and wait until one ventured off a way. He would rub elephant feases all over his body in order to disguise his human sent. Then after beening prepared, would wait for the lone elephant to reach up into a tree for branches/leaves to eat. At that monent the pigmy would run from his hiding place, to uo under the elephant and job it in the belly with his spear. The elephant would then rear up from the pain caused from the spear point. At that moment the pigmy would put the butt end of his spear to the ground. When the elephant came back down to its feet, the spear blade would be pushed way up inside of the chest cavity. The pigmy would run away zig zagging left and right in order to avoid being killed, until which time the elephant would give up. Then often the elephant would head for a stream or water hole to try and cool its self off from the burning feeling inside. Once there and dranking gallons upon gallons of water with no relief. The elephant lies down to try and cool itself that way. Once down the elephant never gets back up. It either dies of loss of breathe and blood or drowns.
So spear hunting is nothing new. Same goes for snares in Africa. Jerry Hill
Yeah, that's kind of the same boat i'm in as well. Elephant have been hunted for years, for better or worse, with a variety of methods. I may be in the minority but i say hunt as you want like the olden days. Today, hunt within the. laws of the area you're in.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
