The latest “The Accurate Rifle” contains an article by a PH that contains the following excerpt: Out client could shoot, no question about that…..and I breathed a sigh of relief. Now to some, that may should strange, but many is the client who arrives in Africa, either totally unfamiliar with his new, ‘big game’ rifle or scared stiff of it. Consequently, worst than pathetic shooting is often the result. Abut this I kid you not. In fact, I am not at all that proud to write that one of my clients once took 12 shots at a buffalo with his .375 H&H…none of them were lethally placed, and I eventually had to shoot and kill the unfortunate creature when he ran out of ammo! If you think that is bad shooting, listen to this. A PH friend of mine recently had a client who took no less than 14, fairly rapid shots at a bull buffalo with his .460 Weatherby Magnum. He too than also ran out of ammo …thankfully, well for him that is. By that time he was hemorrhaging freely from both his nostrils and also one ear! A couple of hours later, he also developed two lovely black eyes as a long-lasting memento of his shooting prowess! He was also deaf for the rest of the hunt. Somewhat sarcastically, my PH friend commented that at the conclusion of it all, his client actually looked worse off that the buffalo!
