Cus­tom knives, An­nie Oak­ley, and bad buck fever. By David E. Petzal

A:

In 1978, in Botswana, I watched over the shoul­der of a hunter with some­thing like 30 sa­faris be­hind him as he tried to aim at a lion 25 yards away. I’ve never seen any­one trem­ble so badly. I re­mem­ber think­ing that things were go­ing to end badly, and they did. He fired in mid-con­vul­sion and wounded the cat, which we then had to track down and kill.
