The African elephant is the largest of the Big Five, and hunting it is very arduous physically, requiring that the hunter be in good shape. Very often large distances need to be covered on foot, often for days on end, before a prime trophy specimen is found.  At first light, the tracker will search for fresh spoor, and only if it is fresh enough and potentially a tusker, will it be followed. Familiarity with the weapon being used is essential, as elephant encounters mostly occur at close range, making the first shot crucial.
