Wow! Wow! Wow! I think the elephants are the critters I am most concerned with. However, the last camp I was In had a pet elephant with a dog that rode on her back. I did feed it reluctantly.

Absolutely loved this report! Wayne and his staff are phenomenal- was there in February!! Can't wait to go back- want to hunt Jumbo with Wayne in the future. Sam, Cowboy and the rest of his personnel are excellent! Congrats on your very fine hunt and sorting out problem elephant!

Enclosing a picture of what used to be a very nice cornfield. Some of the villages are hit very hard by the crop-raiders.

Thanks for the pictures! All I can say is WOW WHAT A RUSH THAT MUST HAVE BEEN!
Glad to see absolutely nothing waisted.
Elephants can sure be destructive when they want to be!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
