We also bagged some impala and made an impressive fire!!!
 
 
 
 
 
I bagged this ram below not too late in the day, about 4:30 pm. However a heavy storm was brewing and it got dark very quickly. The Leupold 3,5-10x40 (on my rifle above) was clear enough for me to take a headshot at about 75 yds. The ram was looking at me with only half its head visible from behind a tree. I took him just a little off centre from being between the eyes. (entry hole not visible but just on the brown patch)
That is my 300H&H Sako action rifle above. Three of us in these pics used it as only I imported a rifle across the border. Loaded with 200gr SGK we took 12 antelope, all head or neck shots, one shot kills. Rifle, scope, bullet combo perfect and accurate!!

Very impressive Wouter! It is looking like my hunting this year is going to be limited to fire tending and cooking, as I can not draw a tag.

Nice animals their condition looks really good, cant wait to get into the bush. I'm always jealous about the way our American brothers get to buy as many Firearms as the wish, but DAMM I'M GLAD WE DON'T HAVE A TAG SYSTEM. Making everone elses dinner is not my idea of fun.

Regards Chris
