The only thing forgotten and not seen again will be those trophy fee and day rates.

This bull was one of the most memorable. I killed him and another bull after a long hike up a big hill in Tanzania with Cliff Walker in Kizigo. He had no desire to die. My 470 got a workout on this bull. He took 6 of us to load him cut in half. By far the biggest bodied bull I have seen.

6 shots. Four of them were very close quarters.

England year round and Namibia x5.
This one was apparently sold for 6M Rand a few years ago as a stud bull. I have no more information than that or even if this is true but nevertheless, it is a monster bull........

Cape Buffalo ~ Lebombo Conservancy, Mozambique
Seen on the first morning of the safari, this old bull was too good to pass up. A spectacular trophy hunted by a true gentleman of the field in Mozambique.

Jerome, you know these are killing some of us. The old double is being scoped right now and I am temporarily grounded. But when released I'm Africa bound. By the way Merry Christmas to all.

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.

Hi TT
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).
