Hunting the Big Five

Of all of the game animals in Africa, none seem to capture the attention of the big game hunter like the mere mention of the “Big Five”.  Africa’s “Big Five”, the Elephant, Rhinoceros, Cape Buffalo, Lion, and the Leopard account for some of the most exciting and interesting Big Game hunting in all of Southern Africa.

John Taylor, author of “Big Game and Big Game Rifles”, and an Ivory Hunter, in his own right, stated clearly that when speaking of Big Game Hunting on the African Continent, we speak of hunting Dangerous Game. For while many of the antelope species like the Kudu, Wildebeest, and Eland can be quite large, none can turn the tables on the hunter so quickly and so completely as the members of the “Big Five”.  The resulting rush of adrenalin is the very essence of that which brings so many hunters to Africa.

Most countries of Southern Africa specify the use of a rifle of at least .375 caliber or greater when hunting the Big Five.  Except for the big cats, quality, controlled expansion bullets or solids are a must.  For the soft skinned cats, rapid expanding bullets are a better choice.  In this regard, always trust the advice of your Professional Hunter.  When deciding on the battery for your particular Safari, consider the largest species you intend to take and plan accordingly.  Make sure you are thoroughly familiar and comfortable with your weapon of choice.  Keep in mind that in all cases, it is much more important where your shot is placed than with what you have made the shot.  So while large caliber rifles with heavy for caliber bullets are the order of the day; don’t over-do it!
