Did he know if using a bow and arrow to hunt was legal?
That's the first thing that struck me as odd about this story. I assumed all of the African safari nations had minimum caliber requirements for hunting dangerous game like elephants and lions (e.g. .370).
Of course my hunting experience is limited to the cunning and elusive White-tail of the central Ky. bush lands.
So, along with removing the collar, that's two strikes.
