Actually, it was Howard Hill. The real problem is that the elephant was first shot in the knee with a rifle so that it couldn't escape. Not exactly "fair chase". Bob Swinehart is also rumored to have done the same when he took his elephant.

The first white person to take an elephant solely by using traditional archery tackle, without resorting to shenanigans like kneecapping with a rifle, is Bill Negley. He used a 100+ lb recurve built specially for the task by Fred Bear. He is also the first to have taken the "Big Five" by fair chase rules.

I have heard this " RUMOR" many times , simply that , Howard Hill and Bob Swinehart both Took their kills cleanly and without " Knee Capping" which was a nasty rumor tossed around by elitist archers that were trying to tarnish the good name of two fine Hunters that took the BigFive before anyone else .

That Said This has been done Several times since , with PH standing by just in case .

I shoot 125# - 200# longbows that will Rip through Hippo, Rhino, Elephants like butter , I just refuse to hunt Cats

The English longbow was the first weapon that could penetrate armour from a distance. It was disastrous for knights on horseback.

The Battle of Crecy saw the longbow first used in major numbers. It proved devastating to armoured knights and other cavalry, as well as crossbow archers who could only fire 1-2 shots a minute as against an average of 5 by the longbow.

Well at first I'd say it's an American flatbow, then in the games it's a recurve, I do both but prefer flatbow/longbow, so I you want to do archery start with recurve then do flatbow, oh and flatbow is just another type of longbow.

First it helps tremendously if you are another elephant. Secondly the other elephant should be of the opposite sex. And thirdly, if you are the female elephant, get the REALLY big lipstick! and a gallon of perfume.

There are 2 ways a elephant can tell an elephant from another. First it can tell by its call; all elephants calls range from high to low. The second way is by smell.

It's not a proper sentence first of all it should be why did the elephant go in the boys bathroom, but needless to say he probably went in to take a elephant size dump.

The lion attacks the elephant first by jumping on the back, making the elephant angry and disturbed. The lion starts biting the elephant on the back before the elephant can shake it off. When the tiger starts attacking the elephant, the elephant starts crushing with its foot, which makes the tiger run off. The tiger bites the elephant's foot and the elephant kicks it with full power, leading the tiger to its death. The elephant violently shakes the lion off its back, killing the lion. Elephant is winner.

People can eat almost anything that does not kill and eat them first, (including other humans), so I am sure that it is possible to kill, cook and eat an elephant. I have no idea how an elephant would taste.
