    Hey guys! I am on my elephant hunt right now - I still have a week left and won't be putting up a lot of details until I get back, but I brought along a satellite GPS tracker, which I am carrying with me on the hunt and it uploads my location every 4 hours (tracks location every 10 minutes).

    I spoke with Mike via text today: lots of dung and tracks, but after 3 days no sightings of elephant. Early mornings and long days. They say you hunt elephant with your feet.

    You definitely hunt them with your feet! Hope he finds them soon, the GPS coordinates are pretty cool.

    Yes sir you do hunt them with your feet. Be ready to walk for miles.
    The GPS thing is cool.

    Love the technology, have used it for a couple of hunts already myself. HOWEVER, as pointed out by my P.H. the technology is easily used by poachers to locate where and when game is EXACTLY. Might consider how it can be used.

    Interesting following your GPS.

    Just don't cross the railroad tracks. Remember everybody is watching.:D

    All the best on your hunt.(y)
