Schaub had hunted there earlier this year in June, when conditions made hunting tough. Denker had told me the June safari had been unsuccessful, saying, "We could not find a bull meeting our expectations." The following month things improved, with a client taking a 70 x 60.5-pound bull, and subsequent safaris yielding an 84.1 x 83.6; 81.4 x 79; and the 101.2 x 105.1, (all official measurements by the Ministry of Environment & Tourism.) Schaub returned for the last safari in early November. "After working very hard, we eventually shot a magnificent bull on the second to the last day of the safari," Denker told me. "It had a huge tusk on the right side and a broken one on the left. The tusks were officially weighed by MET game ranger, Dries Alberts, as 90.4 pounds for the right and 64.5 pounds for the left tusk. The circumference of the right tusk is 22 inches and the length six feet and three inches. This brings to an end an exceptional season." Indeed it has.
