Robin Hurt grew up in Kenya and shot his first buffalo and leopard before he was in high school. Once he started hunting professionally, he did not shy from taking on risks. He guided clients to where the largest heads were, and that included Zaire when it was wild and dangerous and Sudan when rival tribal factions were at war. He hunted during the “golden era” of the African safari when Kenya was in its heyday, Zambia was renowned for its hunting fields, and the entire Big Five could be shot in Tanzania in a few days. And wherever he went, he got exceptional trophies for his clients.
