Readers may have heard about a big elephant recently taken in Zambia by PH Jason Stone. We have learned that the tusks measured 19 inches at the lips and six feet from the skull, making this one of the largest elephants taken there in many years.
Stone sent us some information about the hunt. "This hunt was done in the Mywana GMA with concession holder MVU Safaris, a partnership between Zaid Patel and Peter Chipman. I have hunted Mywana for many years. It's an excellent concession, and MVU spends a lot of money on antipoaching. I have seen no signs of poaching there as of late.
"We don't have the official measurement of the elephant yet and I don't want to publicize it-I've already received a number of death threats from zealous antihunting activists about this animal."
Publicity around this trophy has already served to inflame antihunters online....
