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.
