Kevin Robertson is back again today to follow our discussion from last week up with a more detailed conversation on elephant hunting. As always, he has some great stories to share with us I’m sure you’ll learn a lot from today’s podcast, even if you’re not ever planning on going elephant hunting yourself. I know you’ll also appreciate our discussion on ballistics specifically as they relate to elephant hunting.

Show Notes: https://thebiggamehuntingblog.com/podcast/elephant-hunting-101/

Show sponsor: I highly recommend purchasing a copy of It Shouldn't Happen and The Perfect Shot II if you think you might want to hunt in Africa one day. If you have an upcoming hunt or if you just want to learn more about game in Africa and want a great "all in one" reference, you will not be disappointed with either book. Go to thebiggamehuntingblog.com/kevin to get copies of each one.
