seabeepete your comment remind me to post this, a collection of mark sullivan hunts.for those who dont know who mark is, he's a PH who has a very up close and personal hunting style. Gotta have 100% trust and faith in your firearm to pull this off.
Versus channel carried a show called "Dangerous Game" for awhile-haven't seen it in some time. But they had guys hunting hippo. You lose how big these beasts are till they are charging at the PH in the riverbed. Good thing he has a double rifle with cigar-esque .500 Nitro express. WOW!
I would rather be in a fox hole with a skunk. That hippo looks mad.
I'm with seabee pete, a video would do mush more justice. I had heard that hippos kill a lot of people, but I was under the impression it was in the rivers, not running them down on land
feet don't fail me now...
The guy taking the photo's must run like a cheetah! He outran his buddy, now he gets to watch and take pictures!
Talk about motivation.
Isn't that why the game management people in the US carry sidearms?
Holy Crap...I would pee my pants!
ive heard hippos can out run horses, he's lucky
I couldn't guess that something that big could run that fast...
Feet don't fail me now! I wish there was a video. it would be interesting to see how this all turned out.
Holy crap! Run man run!!!
This gamekeeper in Uganda runs for his life after a hungry, hungry hippo charges him. Hippos have huge teeth and kill more people than any other African animal. He was not severely injured.
