Default Elephant taken with Bow

I just returned from Zimbabwe where I harvested a 6 ton bull elephant with my bow. It was an adreniline rush. I was charged by a elephant, rhino and chased by a croc on this trip, what more could a guy ask for. I shot my bull at only 15 yards, I had bulls as close as 10 yards (that was a charge, that all most made me wet my pants) I'd be glad to share the particulars with anyone interested, such as bow wt., kinetic energy, arrow wt, etc...

Congrats man. Can you put up a picture?
I only hunt what I'll eat, but if I ever did go after an elephant I think I'd be too afraid of their government to head to Zimbabwe lol...too much CNN prolly but dunno.
Also, did you get anything else while there? Pics with a story would be great. =)

Thanks,
Dave

My BowTech Tribute bow was setat 100#, and I was using 125 grain InnerLoc Broadheads. My total arrow wt. was 750 grains, they were double stacked Easton arrows. I had to use a the original Knotless loop because all other string loops were braking under thewt. I also used a Scot "Shark" Release it was rated for the 100# pull.

Any other questions???
