    Hello,

    I am a graphic artist at Safari Press, Sports Afield and Rowland Ward.

    At Rowland Ward we are working on the 30th edition of the Rowland Ward Records of Big Game Africa
    It's due out next year. Is it ok to ask if anyone has a trophy in the top 20 of Rowland Ward? We would love to have some photos for the upcoming 30th edition. And any photo is credited to the owner.

    It's been a lot of fun to learn about the hunting world. I really do appreciate hunters and what they do for conservation, freedom, and helping out local villages in the poorer countries.

    Annette, welcome to AH! Me, I only take things I like. I’m pretty sure none of my trophies would qualify, but to me they are all a part of my grand times! Good luck in your research!

    Thank you sierraone. That it is one of the advantages to working here. I have gotten to read so many great stories! I have none of my own. However, I did live in Ghana, West Africa for 2 years. My last 6 months there I finally got to take a tour in the coastal rain forest.
    We passed a corn field that had been trampled by forest elephant. We were going to try to catch up to them and came upon some droppings. Our guide put his finger in and said, NO, we are about 3 days behind. So we went ahead and traipsed on and came upon some snails.
    This is the funny part, our guide picked one up and said, "We love these! and sucked it right out of the shell. I cracked up. The other people on the tour were grossed out, but I was just laughing. I did eat snails while there. And there were snails larger than my shoes.
    The sad part is, one of the guides on this tour had lost a friend to poachers, just the day before our tour. His friend was a ranger for the game reserve in northern Ghana. This is usually the story I tell when I try to educate people on the difference between hunters and poachers.
