Cape Buffalo


Kevin Richards with another of the great buffalo bulls I've managed to take during my career. He was one of three lone bulls we found on our way to check a lion bait. Once I got the look I needed to identify him for what he was, lion hunting was temporarily put on the back burner. However, there was much work yet to be done. The three bulls bolted and ran off. We followed at a fast walk for a good three miles before spotting them across a canyon. I told Kevin it was now or never and he fired off a shot striking the bull in the body. For reasons known only to him, the great old bull came back across the canyon giving Kevin and I the chance to cut him off and give him a few more rounds. With luck, we were able to put him to the ground for good. My hunting block that year was along the banks of the Rungwa River in western Tanzania.
