    As described in the ZIMBABWE: Father-Son Elephant Hunt report, this is a clip of Hunter's first buffalo, on day 2. This was the 7th time we had bumped him, and he had enough .... Hunter's 2 shots effectively stopped the charge, then Rich ended the drama with a bullet through the left eye. Dad felt like he needed to shoot as well, so the bull caught some more bullets on the way down ....

    That Bull sure appeared to have had enough.

    Good shooting.

    If Dad did not feel the urge to do some back up I'd have been surprised.

    A famous,longserving PH told me last year: in his carrier of over 30 years,no guesthunter has ever stopped a charging capebuffalo without his hunter.
    This Video is a good example for that statement.
    The third shot cleared the situation instantly.

    Admirable nerves by the young man.Super.
    Great respect and good hits.

    First, nicely done by the young man and his PH. Secondly, I recall a thread on a forum not long ago questioning whether Cape buff were really all that dangerous unless wounded. I'd say this video was some pretty nice data on that subject.

    Hunter did well. Your pre hunt training really paid off Jerry!

    I will be completely happy with a "boring" one shot kill. Prood that "Dangerous Game" is not just a marketing term!

    I'm with you. Now that I've seen it once, I don't need to see it again.
