DEATH IN MASAILAND - DVD.
Publisher: Big Bore Productions
Publish Date: 2006
Description: The hunters use a 7x57 bolt action and a 375 H&H double with a scope, and the hunt is a typical East African safari. In the Buganda Concession a few Liechtenstein hartebeests get shot, and there is a spectacular shot on a running civet. As the safari progresses, impala, hyena, and a couple of warthogs are bagged. The kill scenes are repeated three times for each animal, which we think is not needed, but this is a matter of taste. A leopard is bagged at a bait, which is filmed by two cameras so that the footage can be viewed from different angles. Mark goes on to shoot several other animals: buffalo, waterbuck, baboon, hippo, topi, and oribi. Of these the waterbuck is a spectacular trophy and the hippo, although shot in the water, yields some interesting footage when the hunters try to retrieve it. Finally, a good maned lion is shot near a bait on a chance encounter. In Masailand, the usual species such as Grant gazelle, dik-dik, lesser kudu, fringe-eared oryx, gerenuk, and wildebeest are potted. We counted 22 kills in all in this DVD.
