If memory serves me... I think I remember reading that Howard Hill was forced to use a rifle to harvest a couple of animals after having broken his arm while taking the lion with his bow because he was unable to hold and draw his bow with his arm broken.  It was one of few/only times he ever hunted with a rifle. 

Please correct me if I’m wrong.

Howard did in fact use a rifle, as did others in his party, to take some of the game. Broken arm or not, he would still have used a rifle. A secondary purpose for the African trip was to harvest animals for use in museum displays. I imagine they were paid well for this and perhaps it helped to offset some of the expense of the expedition.

NOTE: They also collected live small game for the Los Angeles and San Diego zoos. This info from a newspaper article the day before they left..

Somewhere I saw, in print, mention of the animal hides used for museum displays. I'll have to dig for that.
