Whether a solitary bull or a whole herd , when one encounters this animal one must realize who is the hunter and who is the hunted.  Here we have a large bull testing the wind and if that dreaded human scent wafts past his nostrils he will either flee or charge.  To quote Robert Ruark, the “Cape Buffalo looks at you, like you owe him money”.  This limited edition bronze is 21″ long and is mounted on fine walnut wood.
