Hi Pondoro

The average of all the Elephant hunted in Matetsi Safari Area in 2019 was just over 40 lbs. Our average is a bit higher but I prefer not to create any wrong expectations. The Elephant in the picture was 52 lbs

As neighbours we work closely with Unit 5 and Martin Pieters runs a great outfit there. I dont know why you might think differently but this elephant was indeed shot in Unit One

A few years back I shot a 55 pounder in Unit 2 . . . All the units are contiguous I think, so the elephant roam where they please.

The Matetsi Units are all unfenced and contiguous with Hwange National Park to the South, Botswana to the West and extend up to the Zambezi River in the North.

Hank, the biggest elephant shot in Matetsi over the last 3 years was 62lb but these are the exceptions.

However, when offering hunts I never want to create an expectation that we can't fulfill. I prefer to use the actual averages as recorded from all the Units.

Hope to see you back here one day!

Was posted as such with unit 5, Feb 8 2019, judging from the vegetation probably shot late season 2018 or very early 2019.

Gets confusing when the same picture of the same elephant is posted by different outfitters hunting different blocks.

Matetsi is a great hunting area and a true African hunting experience.

That is a wise policy. I recall my Ph had told me to expect something with a 4 in front of it. On our third day of a 21 day hunt we found an elephant and got close over a few hours. He whispered to me that since it was early, we could wait . . . I asked his estimate of the weight and he said ‘50 pounds or maybe a bit more.” I said well then, why wait? And now I have a great trophy!

I look forward to hunting Matetsi again - the area is vast, wild and beautiful.

Seems IVW was indeed correct. This same bull was posted as shot in unit, 5 posted on 8 Feb 2018. Indeed, do clarify?

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).
