Ask any hunter who has persued any truly dangerous big game animal or truly dangerous hunting destination, and he'll tell you that at some time during his quest there's been that voice whispering, "Why am I here? Why am I trying to do this? ..." These hunters know the inherent risks. They know that similar hunters in very similar situations have been killed. It happens almost every year somewhere in the big game danger zone. Whether the animal is an elephant, cape buffalo, rhino, hippo or a lion or leopard, a hunter after any of these species does so at his own peril. At least in these situations, the danger is known and, as such, a hunter and his team can plan well in an attempt to stay safe. But then there are the unknowns ... the heart stopping hunts ... that you don't expect. The venomous snake that lurks unseen; the loose mountain rock ready to break free, the float plane suddenly in distress. Jim Shockey and his team of professionals have faced close calls and catastrophies worldwide. They've happened, often, with cameras rolling. Now we share with you our most hair-raising heart-stopping hunts. Some we'd rather not see again. Watch for yourself and you'll see why.
