If he isn't intentionally provoking charges, he is the unluckiest SOB alive. His ability to shoot a double accurately, quickly, and to great effect is unquestionable. While I disagree with considering a dangerous game hunt a battle, that is how he chooses to characterize it, in which case, his tactics suck. Anyone seeking a fair fight in battle is either an idiot or has a death wish. If in fact he were in battle with the buffalo, he would: 1) Choose to shoot it from as far away as possible where it can't hurt him. Or call in artillery. Or an air strike. 2) Once he has shot it, he would continue to shoot it until it was clearly dead or at least incapacitated. While watching the 3 or 4 minutes of his film that I could tolerate while I was in Africa, I saw him pass up perfectly good shots and basically dick around until the animal finally decided it was preferable to commit suicide by running into Bwana's big double than it was to watch him be a jackass any longer. Can't say I blame the buffalo. 3) Not constantly belittle the armed men around him and/or put their lives in danger with his hero antics. That sort of behavior tends to tends to aggravate the people who he may one day need to rely on to shoot a buffalo off of him. He clearly fancies himself the man in charge of the hunt, the platoon sergeant if you will. He would be more effective in building an effective fighting team if he worked harder to increase the skills, confidence, and abilities of his men and spend less time self-aggrandizing.
