This week-end I hunted in Swaziland. I got a Nyala on my allocation. The hunt was exciting but not too difficult. I discovered afterwards we were hunting in the owners "private reserve " by mistake, with enough Nyala available to give us a good chance at bagging one. The area we were supposed to go was apparently "mission impossible" with the previous group hunting for 5 days without success. But, with luck we made a mistake and came up with the Nyala of my dreams.
 
We had to cross a small stream in our stalk. I took my boots of and went after him barefoot. It was a semi frontal shot. The 200gr SGK (300H&H) took him in the neck, with the bullet breaking the left shoulder bone on its way out. He fell as if pole-axed and never moved.
