Over in the Matetsi ECA Safari Area, PH Talmage Alexander guided a client on this buffalo and sable hunt. Matetsi ECA is around the 290,000 hectare mark and is truly one of the last free-range, unfenced hunting destinations left that offer clients the experience of a life time and the longing to return as soon as possible.
Onto the recent hunts in the Gonarezhou Safari Areas with PH Nixon Dzingai. A great croc and hippo hunted on the river banks. River hunts for hippo are always exciting due to the fact that most hippos are hunted on dry land in and around the Lowveld River system.
This trophy 44 inch buffalo bull was hunted in the Malipati Safari Area of Gonarezhou.

Some recent news out of Gonarezhou National Park. Parks Rangers found a 132 pounder pick-up in the National Park. Yes, that is not a typo, 132lb pick-up.
The Gonarezhou Safari areas are the perfect place/best place to hunt for trophy elephant bulls and trophy buffalo bulls. During the last 5 years, Carl booked clients whom have hunted two bulls over 100 pounds, one of them was 105 pounds, the next was 122 pounds. This pick-up bull was not hunted, the tusks were found by Parks Rangers inside the Park while out on foot patrol. This bull surely died of old age but, not before passing on his gene.
If you are interested in a trophy elephant bull, the Gonarezhou Safari Areas are the best place to look. Here is the 132 pound pick-up:
