Hi everyone. Here's a lion hunt clip (abbreviated) from about a week ago while filming with Tam Safaris. Not so sure if this guy wanted to take a bite at us, ...... Client used a .416 Weatherby. Hope you enjoy the clip. Here it is:

Hi Gert,

Nice camera work.

A question for you, did they move the lion after it was shot?

The reason I ask, is why was the lion placed so that the road would show in the pictures?

I know if and animal dies near a road you usually will change your camera angle while taking the pictures to take the road out of the pictures.

Camerman pleads guilty in this case (me). As you can see on the video, the lion fell in long grass and rather than doing a lot of "gardening" around the trophy, I asked to have it moved to a better spot where I could have it in an open patch rather than destroy vegetation.

Thanks for the compliment. I must agree, there's nothing like sneaking up to a big male lion when you're out in the open. Sure gets everything pumping. If you are looking to having your hunt filmed , have a look at my web site for details: HUNT PRODUCTIONS | PERSONALIZED HUNTING VIDEOS or pm me on this forum.

For interest's sake: On this same safari, the client's wife also shot a female lion. Unbeknown to us, a huge male sneaked up from behind to with 30 yards of us while we were concentrating on the female. Luckily our PH has eyes in the back of his head. Could have been a bit of a situation. We had some tense moments there. Got it all on camera, but due to the sensitivity in the social media concerning females and lion hunting, I cannot publish this one :(

Gotta love how everyone today has to bend to those with tender feelings. I find it interesting that there is so much stigma about certain things more when women are involved than men. Ms Bachman is a prime example. How often do women present themselves as pro hunters vs men as pro hunters? The general population, and especially those who are against everything they can be, only look at the front cover, yet never open the book. These hunting trips usually provide economical support to the local area, in addition to fond memories for those involved. The haters only look for a reason to gripe and complain. If you don't like it, stop watching....

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
