Great going Max! Nobody could have said it better! I'm glad someone responded to educate the gentleman. Like I said in my first comment I just ignore such people. Maybe not the right thing to do but as I get older I don't have time for people's opinions!

Rocky, you're one of the nicest, most genuine people that I've ever hunted with. Whit, my hat's off to you for using a big bore hunting revolver with dangerous game power to cleanly take your big Cape Buff....unlike some celebrity handgun hunters 😉😬....you represented this sport and love of handgun hunting with respect and dignity 💪🏼👊🏼

Congrats on your buff and sable! Both were impressive.

I wouldn?t dare! There is plenty of ignorance everywhere, not limited by geography!

Thank you for the kind words, David! I take this craft seriously and want to educate as many as possible to this great activity we partake in!

Max, Thanks so much for representing handgun hunting in a positive perspective. Sadly one of the reasons that uninformed -aka ignorant- hunters believe that your hunt was a stunt is that many of the tv hunting shows that do depict handgun hunting treat it like a stunt. In actuality, the average rifle dude has no business pursuing game unprepared with a handgun. Quite often these are the guys that give us a bad name.
It would be interesting to know how many Cape Buffalo have been taken with a handgun. I am guessing a large enough number to push it out of the stunt category.

Thanks for the kind words. I have lost track of all of the arguments I have had online with the typical rifle hunters who spew energy figures and have clearly never killed anything bigger than a whitetail. It's all because they can't comprehend the dynamics of terminal ballistics, and what actually destroys tissue. It's frustrating. You show them the proof and they still can't wrap their heads around it....

The fight goes on...

Max,

As long as the Cape buffalo don?t know you can?t kill them with a handgun - everything will be alright.

I fully support Cape buffalo illiteracy. The less they know the better!
