One of Namibia's claims to fame is its small herd of huge-bodied desert elephants. In fact, these elephants are known to be the largest-bodied elephants in the world. Would you believe, Hunting Report subscriber Rex Baker, Jr. recently had the chance to hunt one of these animals? The animal had grown destructive and aggressive and the game department decided it had to be put down, Baker says. Turns out the animal had fairly small ivory (30 to 35 pounds), but its body was characteristically huge (12 to 14 feet at the shoulder). Its track was more than 23 inches in length. Baker hunted the jumbo with the help of Gunther Heimstadt of Jagdfarm Holstein. His report on the experience has been uploaded to our Trip-Planning Database.
