I spent the day on a hardcore buffalo hunt near Graafwater. This bad boy went rogue and broke out of the resrve, we ended shooting him high up in in a kloof. He tried his best to ambush and evaid us. Measured 36 inches on Rowland ward and should score above 53 on SCI.
I love the strong emotions in this picture. Typically the lioness is the one in charge, the one who hunts and takes care of the babies but here she surrenders, gives up her power momentarily to engage to the lion's sweet play.
