Re: nbc elephant hunting
I have this huntin buddy,from Ga, hunts with us every fall. After Vietnam, spent some time in Africa. He was employed by South African Govt killing Communists in Rhodeasia. He got introduced to the hunting over there and went back when it was still affordable in the 1980's. I've seen his photo albums, good stuff. He had a bunch of knife sheafs made from some of his elephant hide. This guy has mostly Weatherbys & Winchesters. I've shot his 460 mag & 458 win. Myself, I never quite figured out why somebody would even want to shoot a zebra or elephant, ha ha. He tells me its way over priced in Africa nowadays. My buddy is a natural born killer, no joke, good hunter in the zone when there's game to be killed; and I've seen his photo albums from when he was in Vietnam and Africa; good stuff.
He does tell this funny bull crap story about shooting some maneater lion. Making the local Africans so happy, they threw him a potlatch, made him honorary member (sometimes he's the chief) and gave him a couple virgins and after a year if they didn't produce him a son; they'd give him a couple more virgins, ha ha. I actually howl at his storys more than you can imagine. He does got nice big Weatherby Magnums just the same.
