    I shot a gemsbuck at less than 100yds after the guide told me not to shoot. No regrets.

    Several days prior we came upon 2 kudu at close range. He studied them for a long time and they finally walked off. He nonchalantly said " it was the one on the right", which I had in the scope all the while.

    Sevaral days later, a repeat performance with the gemsbok. This time he said (after the shot) "there was a zebra behind him. I had a slightly different angle and saw no zebra. Th gemsbok went about 30 yards and collapsed. Never did see a zebra. Shot one several days previously so I knew what they looked like.

    Talked to the oufitter and he said "it's over". again, no regrets.

    BTW I've been hunting for more than 60 years and never have shot anything I didn't intend to.

    Thanks man. I didn't want to hijack the thread, just wanted to show what I thought was a great way for an outfitter to set expectations.

    Not saying its the case here....but I'd be awfully suspicious that the next fellow into camp was a repeat customer known to be a "big tipper".

    special animals "reserved" for special clients is not unheard of in the industry

    This sounds like the best advice.

    Its easy to Monday morning quarterback. I think I would have taken then shot if I knew that it was within my ability.
