    Hi there.
    Would anyone have or know where i can find photos or diagrams of the different elephant stances? IE: mock charge v's real charge, etc. I'd love to actually see the differences and how to tell if you should put your finger on the trigger or just wait.
    Thankyou in advance.

    Several good videos available at Safari Press. Buzz Charlton's video titled "Hunting Elephant" is what I used. There is a whole section on what you are asking about. Some of the video is slow motion and some is stop action!

    Kim ,
    Your PH will let you know when to shoot and not to shoot. But here is a picture of one who was getting tired of people aiming at him!

    Thankyou. I know what to look for but I'd like to explain it to people and give them a visual, which is always helpful.
