As a hunter I've seen ethics become driven by record books, too bad. The overall experience with your PH and the hunting adventure seems to more and more to take a backseat to the record book. Too bad, many memories are lost in the competition to shoot the biggest. The adventure of the hunt, with the help of a good guide makes for wonderful experiences. The PH in this situation was teamed up with a person who hunts, not a hunter. His next hunter hopefully made up for this person.
Could not have said that better myself.
