PH Comment

Simon shot his tuskless on day 2 – frontal brain at 18 yards, slightly low, but put her down and finished her off. First bullet exited, the others were recovered intact. We saw the elephant from the road, and followed them and caught them where they couldn’t be shot. So we had to wait a few hours for them to move to the communal area before we could shoot. All worked out well.

We looked at a few herds of buffalo, but found nothing suitable. On day 7 we found a herd with a few bulls, and Simon took one , perfect broadside shot through the heart, bullet exited. Took a second shot on the run on the run and knocked him over. He died shortly after.

Simon also took a nice bushbuck and a couple of baboons. The last 4 days were completed by Rich Tabor where they did a lot of walking but then went off to the river where Simon had some luck and landed two 8lb tiger. Lots of game was seen on the river.
