What a wonderful time. Emotions and the privilege to hunt the elephant. Tremendous sable.

Thank you for the report and photos, and congratulations on a great safari. Nothing like an impromptu elephant bull! The buff and sable are beauts as well. Did you measure the sable? Beautiful curve, and nice secondary growth.
I'll be in DSA with Buzz next April, thanks for stoking me!

Could you give us an update on the game situation in Sango?

Great report and congrats on some fine trophies.
CAUTION: I would not put photos of little Ernest on a dead elephant on this site or any other. It doesn't bother me, but I know people it would be very offensive to. The Antis cruise this site and would exploit it in a heartbeat.
STAY IN THE FIGHT!
Beautiful rifle is that the Rigby? Nice ele congrats

Now that's "making a plan"!!!!!!
Nice trophies, congrats on the nice buff, sable and the bonus (?) elephant.
Pretty damn good plan "B".

Marty, yes, the Sable is 37.5" on both sides, but with very large bases. I am thrilled!
Rug, yup, that's the Rigby.
10 August 2012, 18:02Orvar
We're at Sango now and there is tons of game! Unfortunately, the situation is not resolved - but i am 1000% with the local owners on not bending, as it would only be the beginning of the end...

Wow that was a quickly done report- and a brilliant one- It was a pleasure to meet you and your beautiful wife down in Dande and congrats on a great hunt with "Bull Butt"!! He has proved now that he is top dog getting another great bag outside of the SAVE! Well done guys and hi to Nevin- he was my examiner many years ago!

Fantastic report sounds like the near perfect Safari.
Small world as well. I went to school with Ben Mavros in the UK, if I remember correctly Patrick is his Father.
A good guy.
13 August 2012, 23:23Orvar
Yup, and Ben is here and in top form!

Very nice Orvar ! The first pic with the sexy rigby is a classic. Great old animals all around ! Looking forward to more pics

Excellent report and pictures. Your Rigby is gorgeous.
The price of knowledge is great but the price of ignorance is even greater.

I hunt to live and live to hunt!
