"died after apparently being eaten by crocodiles"

Yeah. You tend to die after you get eaten by pretty much anything.

He died doing what he loved

Comment section is pretty disgusting, but I should've expected that.

He loved getting death rolled and having his bones crushed and flesh torn?

Avatar is fitting you sympathizer.

Crocs out for Harambe.

I've been following the search for Scott through my South African professional hunter friend. A sad end, but one of the risks you take to do that job.

I have water skiied in that river there before.   You just need to watch for the crocs.  I had a lot more balls back then.

How do they know the crocs killed him and not just ate the body dead from some other reason??
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 10:22:40 AM EDT
RIP Scott.


I saw something about this over at AH. Did he go missing alone or was a client involved too?

Scott was a friend of mine and an all around good guy, he will be missed by many. I hunted with him several years ago and we have been in touch ever since, saw him last year in Vegas and shared some laughs over a few beers. Hard to imagine how things transpired leading up to what appears to have happened, my guess is he was trying to rescue one of his dogs but I have nothing other than my gut to base that on.

Two men enter, one man leaves?
Yeah, right. Body eaten after he was murdered, maybe.

Large reptiles are an excellent way to dispose of a body if you want to get away with a murder.  Even if the body is found it's going to be damaged beyond any ability to do forensic testing.

Am I in before the PETA brigade hops up on their soapbox to loudly proclaim joy at the death of an "evil" hunter?

Sorry to hear he was a friend.

Ive hunted along the Limpopo. The hunting is very good but yes they have both Crocs and Hippos and neither are animals you want to run into. I saw a 13' croc once and it looked like a dinosaur.
Link Posted: 4/19/2017 11:24:48 AM EDT
Sad news. I can only imagine what a great life a pro hunter must live.

Reading big game hunting books im surprised it doesnt happen more often.  You never know in this case, could have had a heart attack first.  RIP, i hope he didnt suffer much.

Sorry to hear that man. Friend of mine Michael Mueller, apparently knew him as well.

At least their is closure for his wife and kids, instead if just missing.

It means he wants to have all African game poached to extinction. It happens in every African country that bans hunting. Their are more rhinos on ONE SA farm being raised than are in the entire Kruger National Park.

I understand the point of what you're saying but truthfully that's not what's he saying directly.
I'm going to go with him calling hunters scumbags. He's entitled to his opinion but a man lost his life and to say that in this thread is being a COCKSUCKER of the highest order.

Oh, I understand. I am in potchefstroom atm, and postponed my zebra/ blesbok hunt so my PH could go looking for him. I am gonna post pics and tag his ass. Hopefully I trigger him.

I wonder how long he waited to die after he was eaten.  Are we talking minutes, or years?
