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!

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
