I watched the video before I knew there was a flap about it, no clue. My only take was that it didn't appear that either of the hunters had a brain much larger than a pea! Just from the danger standpoint. You cannot outrun a determined elephant. They could easily have become as Capstick once said about a deadly encounter with something. "the hunter was mixed up with enough top soil to start a modest tomato farm!" I don't see the ethical issue, and agree Namibia is getting a bit gun shy about publicity.

I presume if you shot an Eland or Gemsbok bull, Springbuck ram out of the herd on the open plains it would also be unethical. What utter nonsense.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
