Then they really got busy. A PH who is only in his 20s will already have more experience on actual game than the rest of us can imagine, and he will have had to demonstrate his marksmanship, on game, in order to get his license. Buzz, in his early 40s, has 300 elephant and 300 Cape buffalo under his belt, so to speak, plus god knows how many other animals. If you were to ask a retired PH who came from the era when game still had to be shot “on control,” you’d get numbers in the thousands. They’d be hired by game departments, issued rifles and ammunition, and told to go out and keep shooting until there was nothing left to kill.
