In Zambia, I hunted with a PH named John Knowles whose head tracker was named Shemu. On a previous hunt, Knowles’s client had killed a magnificent lion, but after skinning it they found that Knowles’s Land Rover wouldn’t start, and that they would have to walk back to camp, a 25-mile trek. If they left the lion head and cape, hyenas would tear it to pieces, so the client asked Shemu if he could carry the bloody burden. Shemu said yes, he could. A good-size male lion weighs 450 pounds. Let’s say that the raw head and hide weighed 100 pounds and change. That is what Shemu threw on his back and somehow carried all the way to camp, where he became a very well-to-do tracker.
