I just heard yesterday that the PH I was going to use in August had the HUGE misfortune of getting gored! I guess that a client had made a poor shot on a cape and they were following it up in thick brush and it came at them from behind after is circled back on the track.

I HEAR that the skin on his forehead was ground off to the skull as the damned beast skidded him across the ground after slamming him in the back. He took a horn to the thigh that caused a wound that "you could put your fist through". It also threw him after and tore his hamstring loose and, (OH MY GAWD) one horn up the poop shute.

I hope that they have good surgeons there and can save the leg.

This is why I have NO problem with a PH that colaborates on the shot on DG. I'd hate to think that my ego is worth that happening to anybody!

If a hunter makes a bad shot on a Cape Buffalo, and as a result a PH or tracker gets seriously hurt or killed, is the hunter liable because of his negligence?

....Talk about being on the 'horns of dilemma'!..... Hope the unfortunate fellow comes out of it all in tact, and uncompromised in the future.

damned beast... I don't know how to take that, but all it was doing was trying to protect itself.

I feel for the hunter and mostly the PH though. Thoughts and prayres on that one and best of luck on your trip!

To the mighty belong all things.

I don't pray, but if you talk to the PH let him know we're pulling for him.
