Hope that is not one of the Sambar I bought to stock the Amar :):):)
I believe I may be a touch more alert if not faster as well in Sharekhan's district.


As to the Gaur, what an amazing picture and animal. I have seen them in Zoo's of my youth, certainly lost/never had perspective of there size. I have read all the import books on hunting them, talked with Brant, etc.......This picture alone tells me why a 8bore was considered a minimum for them. Just magnificent.

Interestingly, almost all the imports of sambar into Australia and NZ were from Ceylon, where there are no tigers.

pic of a sumatra tiger




and a pic showing the Hungarian Baron Oskar Vojnich with a Balinese tiger, shot at Gunung Gondol, NW Bali, Nov. 1911


"Bali tiger description:

This tiger was the smallest of all the subspecies. Comparatively, it was very similar in size to the leopard and only about half the size of the Amur, (or Siberian), tiger. Even the largest Balinese males did not exceed 100 kilograms. Today, the smallest living subspecies is the Sumatran.

Balinese tigers had short, dense fur which was a deep orange and carried darker and fewer stripes than the other subspecies. Stripes were wide and tended to branch out; between them small black spots appeared. Light areas were a clear white and there were unusual bars on the head.

The Balinese tiger skull shown on this page can be identified due to differences in the teeth and nasal bone which distinguish it from the other subspecies.
Photographic records of the Bali tiger:

For many years it was considered no photographs of this subspecies existed. The ones on these pages are considered the only known genuine images.

The first photograph, (page 1), surfaced amongst the papers of the hunter who shot it in 1925. Little more is known.



Much more is known about the example at the top of this page. Trapped and killed on the 3rd November 1911, the hunt was recorded by Baron Oscar Vojnich, in his book, "On the East Indian Group of Islands":

"In the western part of Bali Island, along the northern shore, in the mountains of Goendoel, we discovered tiger footprints...

"On November 2nd, while collecting twigs to be used for constructing a fence around the traps, the carcass of a freshly killed kidang (a roe-like animal) was encountered by the people. The trap was set in front of the kidang, in the thicket. Munaut was almost certain that the tiger would be caught in another day. I was much less convinced, as the many human tracks could have warned the tiger. But no, it came to feed on the slightly smelly joint, and the trap caught one of its forelegs, just below the wrist."
Museum specimens of the Bali tiger:

The Balinese tiger was a rarity in the wild. Today, it is also a rarity in museums, with only a handful of preserved specimens existing throughout the world. In total, eight skulls and five skins are in various museum collections.

The collection of the Hungarian National Museum of Natural History contains a skin, skull and some bones from a young adult tiger. Obtained in 1977, the skin is worn and faded, the result of having been used as a floor rug. It is thought this tiger was killed in 1933 by a Dutch doctor living on Java. "

Thanks for the interesting vintage pics, Lancaster.

Here are a couple of photos which unfortunately not mine, but from Sri Lanka. I saw three different leopards there, and a multitude of wild jungle cocks. Had a lot of trouble seeing them in the Indian parks I visited, so it shows to go to the right place for the game species you want to see.

I stumpled about the last vietnames emperor Bao Dai who was an fanatic hunter and use the best time of his life to go for tiger, gaur and wild elephant's in the dschungel's of vietnam. not as a emperor with a life guard around him but like a real sportsman.

The Emperor Bao Dai was a real sportsman and a open-minded person . I had the opportunity to meet and to speak with him during a hunt in Alsace/East France in the eighty's . Because of his kindness he was popular in this country and very respected by the local hunters . My father meet him too in the sixty's on several occasions by hunting in this country .

I am a book collector to and visit every flea market in search for old and now forgotten books. last time I found a book from a german who turn the world around with a bycicle in 1951-53. he did some spectacular things then for example near Las Vegas he sneak into the dessert behind the US Army cordon to visit a nuclear bomb test from a hide in the mountains just 16 km away from the bomb. btw, he survive this and became 78 years old.
in vietnam he was the guest of Bao Dai for some days hunt with him in the jungle and shot an elephant and one of two tiger's when the emperor shot the other one. he described the emperor like you do: open minded, intellegent, real sportsman and very popular especially under the tribal man the Hmong or Meo which he had as companions when hunting dangerous game.
must have been a real nobelman...

the rifle he have here looks a little bit like Rigby to me


when you start looking for indochine which had a very similar wildlife like india and farther india you are surprised how much material exist

as nitrox suggest a little google search for Kouprey


and also this


http://cryptozoology.tribe.net/photos/cbfe4786-422a-474c-a076-e60df786ebfb

here with a Mauser 98




A French veterinarian named Dr. Sauvel shot this kouprey in Cambodia. He made a trophy out of the horns and displayed them at his home in France. The French zoologist Achille Urbain discovered the horns at Sauvel's home and thought they might represent a new species. He would later use this discovery to confirm that a wild cow brought over from Cambodia was actually a unique species, which he called the kouprey and named Bos sauveli in honor of the veterinarian who shot this specimen.

Vietnam



a very knowledgable guy there http://animalsversesanimals.yuku.com/topic/2274/ON-THE-EDGE-OF-EXTINCTION-PART-I-tigers?page=33

Vietnam (close to Da Lat) - Large male shot by the woman who was to be Oggeri's partner. It was the only tiger she shot. The tiger (adult male) was estimated at 550 pounds and 10 feet and 6 inches 'over curves' by Oggeri, but I suspect his judgement was influenced by factors of a very different nature. It was, no question, a large male with a big skull. Compare the markings with the animals from southern Malaysia and Burma (see this thread). Very different in a number of ways.

Many Vietnam tigers seem to have pale coats with less, but broader, stripes. In many Vietnam animals (adult males), the skulls are quite large and wide. Wider than in other regions of south-east Asia. It seems to be a consistent character in many.


Vietnam
Hunter and tiger. Although a bit upgraded for the picture, it's clear the tiger was a large one.





Centre of the southern part of Vietnam. Male (shot somewhere between 1930-1960). Lean and long.







In this post, two photographs from Lt.-Col. Locke's book on 'Tigers in Terengganu' (was discussed earlier), one unknown and one from Oggeri (the last one). Compare the tigers in the pictures with those posted in the previous post.

Than try to understand why biologists, some time ago, decided all tigers between Johore (southern tip of Malaysia), the northern tip of Burma (Myanmar), Perak (north-western part of Malaysia), Thailand, Cambodja, Laos, Vietnam and the south-eastern tip of China were Panthera tigris corbetti. I would get to a non-diagnosis.

Johore was granted a new status (Panthera tigris jacksioni), but it seems the other regions also deserve a review. Too many consistent differences in marking, average size and skull.


1 - Two independant, but immature females from Terengganu (cattle lifters, measuring 7.4 and 7 feet 3 inches 'between pegs'). Immature, but relatively long (short tails), tall and lanky (probably below 100 kg.). This seems to be common in that area (Johore, Negri Sembilan and Terengganu). Tigers in Perak, however (also Malaysia) are very different (longer, heavier and thick-set).




Adult male shot in April 1951 (Jerangau man-eater - 8 feet 6 inches 'between pegs'). A short, but powerful animal. And well short of 400 pounds.




Two Vietnamese and a very old male tiger on a stretcher (...).

This photograph of a killed Bali tiger surfaced amongst the papers of the hunter who shot it in 1925.



An old killed Bali Tiger male
"Because Bali is a small island, the tiger population on Bali must always have been quite low. Rapid increase in the human population and a rising demand for agricultural land led to deforestation. This has led to the destruction and fragmentation of the already small tiger habitat. At the beginning of the 20th century, tigers probably survived only in the mountainous and relatively sparsely populated western part of the island. Here hunting pressure increased as the country was gradually opened up and many Europeans living in Java organised hunting trips to Bali. As early as the mid-1930s most Bali tigers were museum or trophy specimens. Both trophy hunters and locals carried new and more-efficient firearms. Between the two World Wars the Bali tiger was hunted indiscriminately and by the end of World War II the Balinese subspecies is thought to have disappeared altogether.

The last Bali tigers lived in the north-western tip of the island. The last well-documented specimen was killed there at Sumbar Kima, West Bali, on 27th September 1937 (Day, 1981). This was an adult tigress.

An exact date of extinction is unknown as throughout the 1940s reports persisted that tigers still lived on the island. These came from people considered to be reliable and they continued into the 1950s, though with a reducing frequency. One instance occurred in 1952 when a Dutch forestry officer reported seeing a Bali tiger. There have even sightings continued to surface in the 1970s. One suspected sighting was in a western reserve in 1970 and the Balinese Forestry workers reported another in 1972. Despite these positive reports it is almost certain that the Bali tiger is extinct and little chance it will ever be rediscovered. The remaining forest areas on Bali are simply no longer large enough to provide a tiger with the required shelter and food source."

may be an interesting read




http://www.amazon.com/Frontiers-Fear-Tig...ld%2C+1600-1950

"For centuries, reports of man-eating tigers in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore have circulated, shrouded in myth and anecdote. This fascinating book documents the relationship between the 'big cat' and humans in this area during the 350-year colonial period, recreating a world in which people feared tigers but often came into contact with them, because these fierce predators prefer habitats created by human interference. Peter Boomgaard shows how people and tigers adapted to each other's behaviour, each transmitting this learning from one generation to the next. He discusses the origins of stories and rituals about tigers and explains how cultural biases of Europeans and class differences among indigenous populations affected attitudes toward the tigers. He provides figures on their populations in different eras and analyses the factors contributing to their present status as an endangered species. Interweaving stories about Malay kings, colonial rulers, tiger charmers, and bounty hunters, with facts about tigers and their way of life, "

"The last Caspian tigers

In Iraq, the only reported Caspian tiger was killed near Mosul in 1887.[12] The last known tiger in the Causasus region was killed in 1922 near Tbilisi, Georgia, after taking domestic livestock. They disappeared from the Tarim River basin in Xinjiang in the 1920s.[13][14] In Kazakhstan, the last tiger was recorded in 1948 in the environs of the Ili River, their last stronghold in the region of Lake Balkhash.[5] In Turkmenistan, the last tiger was killed in January 1954 in the valley of the Sumbar River in the Kopet-Dag Range.[15] In Iran's Golestān Province, one of the last tigers was shot in 1953; one individual was sighted in the area in 1958.[16] In the Tian Shan mountains west of Ürümqi in China, the last Caspian tigers disappeared from the Manasi River basin in the 1960s. The last record from the lower reaches of the Amu-Darya river near the Aral Sea was an unconfirmed observation near Nukus in 1968. By the early 1970s, tigers disappeared from the river’s lower reaches and the Pyzandh Valley in the Turkmen-Uzbek-Afghan border region.[5]

There are claims of a documented killing of a tiger at Uludere, Hakkari in Turkey in 1970.[17][18] Questionnaire surveys conducted in southeastern Turkey revealed one to eight tigers were killed each year in eastern Turkey until the mid-1980s, and tigers likely had survived in the region until the early 1990s." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caspian_tiger



finally I find the origin of the tiger head you see in pre WW 1 german gun catalogues to point on dangerous game rifles





obviously it was taken as some kind of "freeware" from the guide for the zoological garden Berlin showing a Sunda Tiger what mean the typ of malayan, sumatran and javan tiger

I missed some of these posts. Some wonderful posts, which will take some time to have a good look over and read. That book looks worthwhile investigating too.

Looking at some of the trophy photos, guys sitting on elephants, tigers hanging from a pole, guys that 'might' have taken photos with their foot on the beast in the photo, it reminds me of some of hoo-hah and shrill carry on by "modern hunters" when they see some of this stuff today, claiming it is disrespectful or even far worse eg a guy who was sitting on a rhino recently, yet it was often commonplace not long ago, and not disrespectful back then. Guess times have changed ...

I think today it is often called envy myself.

"probably in his later 30s, with a "bagged" tiger, possibly one of the notorious man-eaters that "infested" the Gopeng district, which he became famous locally for fearlessly hunting down, Jim Corbett-style. Cyril died suddenly of peritonitis in 1907, aged only 40, and is buried at the Christian cemetery in Kuala Lumpur. According to Robert Shaw, one of his two living UK-based grandsons, the gravestone is still in existence at the cemetery. This particular branch of the Ceylon-Burgher (Galle-based) Ephraums family has no members still living in Malaysia, but it is possible that direct descendants of one or two first cousins from Galle, Ceylon (sons of a brother of Cyril and Wilfred's father who - according to vague reports - both moved independently to the Straits Settlements as young men in the later 1800s) may still live in Singapore, with the Ephraums surname."

This was taken in India in 1928. Killing a tiger was the highlight of many big-game hunters’ lives. Killing a few tigers on a self-guided hunt from a primitive treestand must have been even more satisfying—especially if it was done wearing nothing but Speedos! One cannot help but wonder if this eccentric English gentleman found inspiration for his hunting adventure in Tarzan of the Apes, published 16 years earlier. He definitely seems to have gone back to basics—and successfully so! Two tigers, a leopard, a nice sambar trophy, and a recently killed sambar cow for the pot or bait is not a bad bag on a single hunting trip.

According to the notes on the back of the small picture, he shot the animals by stalking and from primitive treestands. A safer and more traditional (but costly) approach would have been to hunt the big cats from the back of an elephant. Maybe that was too ordinary for the rather extraordinary hunter whose hair gel budget probably could have covered the cost of a normal safari.
