Zimbabwe Hunting Report Part 2

I am not into record books, etc., but this did finish a person goal for me of taking all of the modern African Dangerous 6 that includes lion, leopard, Cape buff, elephant, hippo and crocodile. It used to be the Dangerous 7, but rhinos aren’t really a reality any more as endangered as they are.

My croc ended up at 14 feet and he was well over 1,000 pounds. It took 6 of us just to turn him to take photos, and he had to be butchered on the spot. Again, the meat went to the local community, and we tried the tail. It was OK, and I love alligator meat, but this old guy was just plain tough. I think eating size is about 6-8 feet, and this one was probably 70 plus years old.Tim-Crocodile

After a terrible year last year, Africa has been very good to me on 2 safaris this year. I hope my luck can hold out for the rest of the fall on my upcoming whitetail hunts in Montana and Nebraska.

Hunt hard…Tim H.
