Hi Guys would be interested in this - not a trophy hunter - save for Warthog - talk to you all you want about piggies - from 15m to 300m Warthog are amazing - love to hunt them - Wait - Hippo - want to hunt hippo and cull them - heard some stories about Zambia and a cull there -

Competent with rifle from 8mm rem mag to 416 Rigby anyhow if culling and a couple of warthog - well gives us something to do when they are recovering the hippo - nice walk and maybe a piggie for the collection

Anyhow back to the Hippo - if you know of anything - Have culled South Africa UK Iceland and Bulgaria !


Thanks

Stephen

What would define a cull hippo? A cow? How could you tell it didn’t have a calf, I imagine that would be rather difficult.

Quite easy to determine if a cow had a calf or not.

Some countries have too many hippo and they are therefore culled. Many cause damage and destroy crops of subsistence farmers and are then culled.

PAC hippo are another option. If done at night this can be quite exciting and a real adrenalin rush but not for the faint hearted though.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
