Interesting to hear that aspect of it. Hadn't seen that part in the bible about elephants and ostriches.
I watched a hunting show a few years back where they did exactly that. They shot a big bull elephant, and then the local villagers all lined up around the carcass. Men, women, children, all had some type of plate, tupperware, etc., and were hacking off and walking away with large chunks of meat.
I am not a trophy hunter, and I won't kill anything I don't eat. However, I thought that it was pretty cool that the animal was being consumed and put to use.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
