PH Comment

It was a pleasure to hunt with Paul again in the DSA. On the list this time was a tuskless and a ration elephant. Being later than we normally hunt it was very hot so we were tactical on which trails we followed. On the 3rd day we shot the tuskless with a frontal brain shot at 22 yards and she went straight down. On the 10th day we shot a ration elephant at 20 yards, also with a frontal brain shot that dropped her and we got 50 cm penetration with the 600g bullet! A few baboons ended yet another great hunt with Paul.


Client Comment

CM Safaris provided great camps, trackers and staff for a great hunt. I had an opportunity to try out my 600 OK rifle on 2 elephants. Buzz kept the hunt within reasonable limits as the very hot temperatures kept the tracking sessions to within 2.5 hours. Buzz’s experience in making judgment calls to only follow the best tracks were evident. An enjoyable hunt!!
