THE ONE AND ONLY!
Ecclesiastes 3:11: He (God) has also set eternity in their (man’s) heart…
The bull elephant was 12 yards away in 10-foot-tall grass, only the dome of his head visible. Zane, my PH, turned and whispered, “If he smells us, he’s going to charge and try to kill us all!” I tighten the grip on my .416 Rem. Mag. as Zane’s leaned over for a better look down the trail left by the bull, placing the butt of his .500 N.E. double rifle on the ground. I turned back to the elephant and saw his trunk high above the grass searching the wafting breeze. Suddenly, he froze, dropped his trunk, let out a blood-chilling roar…and charged! I remember thinking: Zane is out of play and I have to wait until I can see his eyes to know where to shoot. At 6 steps, his eyes became vaguely visible through the grass. I centered the sights between the orbs and asked God to guide the bullet. He did! The massive bull crashed to the ground just feet in front of me.
