Once in a lifetime photos....Post them here!

A few years ago, we had a hunter in camp on a plains game hunt. He managed to snap this photo while both him and the PH was running away, after getting an unprovoked charge from a Rhino. The last photo was a simple coincidence of snapping the photo while the camera was in motion and facing rearwards.

That is a amazing photo bet they set a new world record for the 100 meter dash.

Mine isn't hunting, but My wife and I got Married at Pride rock on Shelanti Game reserve while on our 2015 Safari and it is my amazing once in a lifetime photo.

After much debate, I uploaded a picture that is of iffy quality and leaves lots of questions. However, it was a very very rare upclose encounter

Point Reyes California on the Pacific coast - the last late afternoon of a weeklong stay. Thousands of birds and probably 1000+ seals acrobatically hunting in clear water. Hard to put into words without being there in the moment.

Probably my favorite - and taken hastily with an Iphone. Herd returning in failing light in the Limpopo to the death bellow of one of their own. They spent the better part of a half hour hooking him before we could move them along with the vehicle.

And this one of my son just before the wounded bull spun, an arc of blood flying from his mouth, and began a charge in the Zambezi Delta. He had hit him seemingly perfectly with a near frontal on the first shot. Anchored, he would not fall with three more bullets behind the right rear rib. As he turned, he was immediately hit by another .375, a .458, and a .500. I didn't get that picture because I had pitched the camera and was shouldering my own double.

And I have no idea why the photo is so small. :E Shrug:

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
