    Awesome bull, I was hoping there would be a story since Wayne sent me a pic via WhatsApp in Nov. I need to work on my hunt report from October...

    I didn’t see a comment on Wayne’s city driving skills, maybe he was on his best behavior?

    Interesting about Bulawayo airport, was through there twice this year and they didn’t ask about counting cash and I had declared it on the entry forms.

    Congratulations and looking forward to the rest of the adventure!

    Thanks and looking forward to your report!

    I didn't mention Wayne's driving skills because I didn't want to scare anyone off :whistle::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    I thought it was odd that they wanted to count our cash as well. I think they make the rules up as they go sometimes!

    I believe they counted incoming and outgoing cash (not allowed to take out more than $2000 USD),without a stamped form, during Mugabe reign. I was expecting it this year but maybe it’s my innocent looks or they thought I was a short bus rider lol

    My wife rode with Jen on the way back from Bubiana (~3.5hrs), and from the sounds of it, she and Wayne drive alike!

    Your new avatar is a money shot! Great picture.
    Congratulations on your success. Running around in the dark after dangerous game is certainly "intense". I can only imagine Elephant!

    Nice bull. He may not of been the 60 lb bull he looks darned respectable. Besides he's yours! Good shooting. Gotta be a real adreline rush to be stalking an ele in the dark. Congrats

    OMG ! You killed a poor defenceless . . . CONGRATULATIONS.
    I hunted the South Dande region in 2003 and took my elephant on the ninth day of my hunt.
    Unforgettable.

    Wow. What an amazing adventure! SA, Zim, and some great trophies. I can imagine, that Elephant hunting at night, is not for the faint hearted.
