    Honest, I'm not tying to be a smart a.. The best place to start is at your fingertips. Your computer, then narrow it down from there

    Fred told me that of all the animals he ever shot he never shoot a elephant again. He said they had to track it for days before it died.

    Default Elephant Hunt

    To make comment Howard Hill shot a longbow & rumor has it that the Elephant was shot in the knees with a rifle But Fred Bear once told Bob Eastman of MI. that he didn't think ANYONE should hunt elephant with a bow...just his toughts on the matter...not mine !! A number of elephants have been shot with all types of bows over the years...just plan on pulling a heavy poundage bow if you can find someone that is willing and able too take you...African laws change more often then I change my underware Best of Luck in your ''HUNT''

    You're more than likely to end up with a "green hunt"...but it would be just as exiting.
