Thank you guys.
My English grammar isnt the best...
I took my elephant the 3rd hunting day.
The rains threathened us. We had rain at all horizons during the nights before.
If the rains struck us, the hunt would have been difficult. Difficult to get trough the bush with the cruisers without getting stuck.
We approached a few elephants. I decided to take the first shootable one. Even if it wanst a monster. I didnt want to risk not getting one.
I took two quick heart shoots with my 470double. Shooting distance 25-30 yards.
He fell after 30yards.
He accompanied with two other bulls. One more of them were shootable. The other one had thick short tusks. I decided to go for long and thin...
Mbalabala and my PH were great.
They got my full recommendations.

I also took a baboon wich terrorized the camp and a nice bushbuck.

Thanks for posting. I would love to do this hunt. Maybe in 2019. Going for buff/Sable this year.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
