I broke them into 3 parts to help them load
Hope you enjoy.
As often happens it is hard to capture the excitment of the moment with the camera but you can take my word. I was maxed out

Congrats Buff,
Now I'm feending to go back to Africa, thanks for that!

I have a start on the big 5, a cape buff, but that was with training wheels... Now I'm dreaming of heading over there with the longbow!

Buff,

Now that you have had a little time to relax (I hope!) what's your opinion on broadheads for large dangerous game? Would you still choose German Kinetic for game like Water or Cape buffalo, or would you now prefer the Tuffheads?

I really was impressed with the Tuffhead. It would be my first choice

Buff,
Have you seen last months bowhunter magazine? Dennis Kamstra on 'Tips from the old guy' talks about hardwood shafts available spined up to 120# and weights of 850 grains bare. His email is SafariDen@aol.com. (He runs a tradbow guy service out of R.S.A).

what do you do with an entire elephant though, that's gotta be way to much meat to eat, with an animal that big is the meat any good?

I'm pretty sure most of the meat is donated to the village

no a bite of the elephant was wasted. Ladies came from miles around with buckets to carry it away
