Several years ago I was in Nosler's store in Bend, Ore and watched a couple videos on buff hunting. What I saw was animals going by like dairy cow's while hunter's were looking for them. Next I watched some incredably bad shooting. Then I watched a PH with a nice double gun pass up several opertunities to make easy killing shot's and prevoke an attack. All exciting to view but it makes me wonder what's really going on?
I see a Buff as a huge massive animal that's got some well protected vitals. I also watched a hunter that couldn't hit his own a_s and a PH that appeared to be more intrested in making exciring video's.
I also watched a lion hunt and while there was no dramatic charge, Lousy shooting brutalized a lion laying on the ground befor it was shot and killed. Perhap's to many, maybe better said, some, people really do take more cartridge with them than they can shoot. If it is legal, wouldn't a well placed 275gr 338 bullet be more effective on a buff that a misguided 500gr 45 cal bullet?
