    My friend and PH in Namibia warned me to be carful on my upcoming buffalo hunt. Here's some pictures of a friend of his who was gored 3 weeks ago.

    Ouch! Hope he's doing OK! Surviving such a horrifying ordeal shows a lot about a man though. Tough guy. Lots of very experienced and very tough PHs didn't make it according to "White Hunter".
    Best for your friend.

    Don't do it @BWH. If you run with the bulls you best take your rifle for protection! Those things injure people every year. Would rather read your hunt report on Cape buffalo than another injury report like this one.

    Gotta say I didn't need to see this considering I'm heading for my first cape Buffalo Hunt in 90 days. I was nervous enough. Back to shooting and studying all the info I can on shot placement. I hope the hunter recovers completely.

    Ouch, hope the hunter makes a speedy recovery. Goes to show how dangerous they can be.

    While we are at it...
    I remember this photo form a while back and dug it out.
    Think it was the PH that was gored by a Buffalo in TZ..

    Depends how you look at it; lucky to be alive, or unlucky to be gored.
    They can be nasty..

    A free range tracking Buffalo hunt is really awesome though.
