As part 3 of a 6 part series of articles which l am writing for African Hunting Forums ( each featuring a dangerous game animal from the Indian subcontinent ) , today l wish to provide my dear readers with an overview on how Indian gaur bison were hunted during my career as a professional shikaree, working for Allwyn Cooper Limited in Nagpur , India from 1961 to 1970 . I have already provided comprehensive guides on how panthers and royal Bengal tigers were hunted during my time . Today , the mighty gaur shall have his turn. The gaur is the Asian cousin of the African cape buffalo and the Australian scrub bull and l believe that the similarities between the 3 species are manifold . Therefore , aside from hopefully being an entertaining read , l am optimistic that this article may allow many of my dear readers who have hunted the cape buffalo in Africa or the scrub bull in Australia , to make a direct comparison of the hunting techniques used for the African cape buffalo and the Australian scrub bull , with the hunting techniques used for the Indian gaur. I shall break this article down into the following sections ; each to be covered in 1 post : 1) The Grey Forest Ghost 2) Gaurs & Man 3) Tracking The Gaur 4) Shooting The Gaur > Shot Placement > Adequate Armaments > Choice Of Bullets 5) Following Up Wounded Gaur 6) General Remarks Here is a photograph taken by myself of a gaur which l had shot and killed in 1969.
