Congratulations.

That butchering process must be something to witness.

Congratulations on the bulls. Thanks for the pictures. How many bulls did you look over before you found this one? How many days did it take you to get the trophy bull?

Congrat's on your hunt! Could you give some more details about your hunt? # bulls seen, #days hunted, other animals seen, etc... I'm thinking of hunting elephant with Wayne in 2015. Thanks!

That butchering process must be something to witness.

wayne when the villagers pitch up the scene is no different now to the descriptions of elephants being butchered in the old hunting books, i.e. when the hunting party has taken what they want it becomes a free for all. its amazing to watch, but we did have an italian hunter along once who looked more like he was on a photo shoot for a very upmarket safari clothing mag, and he disappeared into the bush when we broke out the sandwiches as the other client who had shot the ele wanted to watch the proceedings. he came back later looking a bit green around the gills :vomit: and wouldnt eat anything.......:heh: my wife wanted to know why when we got off the charter plane after the hunt he looked as if he had stepped out of vogue magazine, and i looked like i had just crawled out from a bush.......:thinking:

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
