Michael Robinson and his Livingstone eland.

"Doctor Livingstone, I presume."  Many things in Africa are named for Dr. David Livingstone, including a waterfall and a city in Zambia. Of greater interest to hunters, however, is the Livingstone eland. Although purportedly not as difficult to hunt as the Lord Derby, the Livingstone eland can run for miles at the first sign of danger. Mozambique is the place to go for this species, according to Tobe Whitley(9486), who hunted Cape buffalo and Livingstone eland there with Grant Taylor of Mashambanzou Safaris. His strongest praise was for the 36-inch eland he took. “This was a real hunt, not just a shooting trip. We tracked the eland for miles before getting the shot. Great PH and plenty of game.”

Also in Mozambique, Brian Peterson (9100) took his eland with Kambako Safaris' Paul Wellock. “Incredible. I had a huge-bodied blue bull eland walk by me at 20 yards a couple days after taking a 37-inch bull. Great variety of animals. The area and the outfitter have a well-deserved reputation.

“Finally getting a big eland bull after many tries in Namibia” was the highlight of Michael Robinson's Mozambique hunt (9377) with PH Guy Whittall of Roger Whittall Safaris. “Huge concession with 500,000 hectares of brachystegia woodland and vleis. I tracked sable and eland every day.”

In Zambia, Douglas Fraser (9428) struck out on Livingstone eland due to dense bush, but took just about every other key plains game species. He hunted with Sean and Dene Bird of Balla-Balla Safaris. Ancil Lindley (8782), however, did get his Livingstone in Zambia with Pete Fisher of Nchila Wildlife Reserve. “What a fantastic experience! Real Africa. And no tsetse flies.”


David Hollingsworth and his trophy elk.

American Elk, Part 2. In our last roundup we brought you big Rocky Mountain elk hunts. Here's a few more, plus some great reports on hunting the Tule and Roosevelt subspecies. “Great hunt, great people,” says David Hollingsworth (9509) of his Wyoming hunt with Tyler Sims Outfitting. “Bugling bulls and aspens in full color at 8,000 feet. It can't get much better.” Dave Westrum (9367) was “too picky” to take an elk on his Gila Desert hunt with James Guide Service. “I looked over 60 bulls up to 350. I was looking for bigger, but the rut was winding down. Fortunately, this won't be the last time I hunt with Marvin James!” Kenneth Harrell (9386) enjoyed an excellent hunt with Jesse Rodenbough of 4U Outfitters. “This is a horseback pack-in hunt. The ride is beautiful and the camp was great. Six hunters in camp, and three bulls over 300 points were taken.”

As for Roosevelt elk, Michael Morton (9373) scored big with a Boone and Crockett bull in Oregon, hunting with Ron Hofsess of Avery Mountain Ranches. “Ron is a super guy with a great track record. You simply cannot believe how many bulls he has! The place is also covered with Merriam's turkeys.”

Out in the tulies, Kurt Fetzer (9488) took a big 7X8 tule elk with Nolan Twisselman of Twisselman Outfitters in California. “The heat didn't stop us, with lots of bulls to look over. Not pressured, all free-range.” Dave Baxter (9286) enjoyed camaraderie and great California hunting with Gordon Long of Multiple Use Managers. “These guys ran the hunts on Santa Rosa Island for years, and know how to take care of hunters. I got a wonderful 260-280 class tule elk to complete my North American 28.”


Jerry Davis with an impressive Gobi argali specimen.

The Great Ram of Mongolia. Argali are the largest of the world's sheep. Despite the oft-heard comments that Marco Polo argali are the largest among the subspecies, the winning records belong to the Altai argali of Mongolia.

One of the major outfitters to deliver big Altai argali is Mongol Safaris. “The guides on this hunt were the best I've had in Mongolia, in the top 10 I've ever had on a sheep hunt,” says Ronald Roderick (9181). He took a great 52-inch Hangai argali. Frank Greiner (9459) found the ibex plentiful where Mongol Safaris took him, but had a harder time finding the argali. Still, he came out with a 55-inch ram. “The guides are extremely competent and hard working individuals. My son thought the local food was amazing, and it was great experiencing Mongolia and its people. Still, you might want to bring dehydrated meals.”

And don't forget about the Gobi argali! Richard Bonander (9398) took a 43-inch Siberian ibex and a 45-inch Gobi argali with Mongol Safaris. “Very remote area, no electricity, so be prepared.” 

Dave Steger (9102) says that he saw many Gobi argali on his hunt arranged by The Hunting Consortium. “We worked hard and we climbed hard. I saw many argali and took a 13-year-old ram with 47-inch horns!” Jerry Davis (9598) also got a great Gobi argali with Safari Outfitters. “We saw up to 150 sheep daily, and I believe I could have gotten one over 50 inches if I'd held off. Great hunt and great cultural experience. In Mongolia, you have to relax sometimes and take it in, and not be in a big hurry.”
