Two hunters got a pilot to fly them into the far north for some kudu hunting. The weather was good and they were rather successful in their venture, taking down six big buck.
As arranged, the pilot returned to pick the two up and they began hastily loading their gear into the plane, including the six kudus. However, when the pilot saw the six animals he immediately objected and said, “The plane can only handle four. I’m afraid you will HAVE to leave two behind.”
Of course the hunters weren’t particularly happy at this prospect and argued with him, stating that just the year before they had also managed to shoot six buck and that that pilot had allowed them to put them all aboard. Besides, this plane is exactly the same model with the same capacity as that one, so just what is the problem?
Reluctantly the pilot finally agreed and permitted the two to load all six onboard.
The plane taxied out and attempted to take off to leave the valley, but the little plane never stood a chance, failing to lift off and plowing straight into the bush.
Climbing out of the twisted wreckage, the one hunter said to the other, “Do you know where we are?”
“I think so”, replied the other hunter. “I think this is about 100 meters short of where we crashed last year!”
