Good Grief, thats a fantastic Elephant area. The water is not really an issue there, you're quite some distance from the Okavango Delta. I shot mine in NG41 in 2006. Here's my take on what size to expect. I shot mine sixty something x sixty something at noon on day two. We had walked up to and looked at 18 bulls before I shot mine. We could have shot a 55-60 relatively easy, just about any day. Here's what I would do If I had to do it over.
I would hold out for 10 days for something in the 70's. Like I said on day 11 you can lower your standards a bit. I wish I would have waited, that said, I am 100 percent satisfied with my total experience.
I would be willing to bet you kill your bull in the Mababe depression, near the village of Mababe. I hunted in early May, the Jumbo's were eating palm nuts, good time of year to go.
I shot mine at 18 yards frontal brain shot and am glad i did it that way. Proper.
Hunt well and be sure to shoot a Hyaena off the carcass. It will sit and rot, the locals there aren't hungry. We went to the village and couldn't get a single person to come to the kill site.
I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
