This same channel has several hunts by Howard Hill, the golden age of hollywood's expert archer.
m.A.g.a. !

One of the YouTube comments:

eric rungren the ph here was one of the most famous white hunters ever, i read a story about this hunt and that negly guy used more than 20 arows to get that elephant down, this movie clip is clearly edited. after this hunt rungren went back to kenya and the EAPHA and got bowhunting banned all over east africa.

20 shots, if true, would be sad.

Howard did a full length movie called TEMBO about a hunt he did in Africa. You might be able to still find it in print.

It's easier to fool people than it is to convince them they have been fooled.
