Hippo

Hunting Hippo can be a very difficult task.  Normally the Bulls are hunted as trophies and as they spend most of their time in the water, identifying the Bulls can at best be difficult. The Hippo can also be hunted on the land and make no mistake, hunting Hippo in this manner can be extremely exciting.  A Hippo Bull disturbed on the land or in a small pan can become extremely aggressive.  Approach this big fellow with extreme caution and be ready for a charge.  Rely only on large caliber rifles with solid bullets for this job.
