    It is with a sad heart that I post this thread. Mark "Ellos" Ellement passed away this past weekend from an extended illness. Ellos was the partner and best friend of Mark Butcher. Ellos was a consummate PH. He loved the bush, especially while following the worn track of a old tusker. Many a hunters fondest memories of Africa include Ellos and his uncany skills as a PH. As many cherished memories are from nights around the campfire talking to Ellos about days in the Rhodesian army or uncanny leopards that were a special challenge. RIP peace Ellos. Saying prayers asking for comfort for your family. You will be missed.

    I had the great fortune of spending 3 weeks with Ellos hunting leopard and his passion elephant back in 2010. He will be missed
