A unique hunting experience in South Africa
Ian’s plan of the day was to wait for the eland to begin feeding and then stalk through some thick bush into them, giving them strong cover and plenty of space to identify their ideal animal to harvest. The plan was successful and after getting within 110 yards of the bull, which was stood perfectly, Ian set up his sticks and readied his rifle. Unfortunately, another eland wondered into view, the shot was now unsafe to take. The sun started to set and the hunting session was over; it’s time to head back to the lodge. Although the end might have been disappointing, it had still been an amazing day in the wild.
The following morning Ian’s hopes are still high and he’s ready to get right back out into the wild. They spot the herd of eland along the plain; who soon head straight into the bush. Knowing whereabouts they will reappear, Ian once again gets set up on his stick and patiently waits. It wasn’t long until the bull remerges followed by the two cows. Ian waited until the bull presented a safe, ethical shot and he calmly squeezed the trigger. The shot hit perfectly and the bull past within a few feet. Another incredible hunt in South Africa has come to an end and an impressive eland bull that will also supply 150 kilos of biltong for a local game farm.
