Another fun trip in South Africa
While most all my buddies were either gearing up to head for the mountains, or were already in the mountains chasing bugling elk, I was flying back across the globe to South Africa to hang out with my buddy Lammie at Dare to Bowhunt and shoot a few critters too. I didn't have much vacation time to burn unfortunately, so my trip was short and was only able to get 5 1/2 days of hunting and bow shooting in before having to head back home. Was lucky enough to stick a few critters while there, see some new country, and most importantly hang out with good friends.
Here's a few pics from my excursion.
Congrats and great shooting with that stick bow!
My straightest crooked arrow in route to its final destination..
Congratulations... love the Impala Paradox photo!
great trophies. congrats on a great trip to the dark continent
Congrats! It looks like you made the most of a short trip. Good shooting on those string jumping impalas.
Looks like you had a great hunt. Beautiful trophies, thanks for sharing. Forrest
Uh, the shot on that nyala looks to be about a sixteen of an inch off ! :)
Great action photos ! Always interesting to see the African threads.
Did you see many trophy bull eland come to the water? Forrest
Well done mate! What was your set up? And great Nyala!
Thanks for sharing, looks like a great trip!
Really nice trophies there. That blue wilde is a real beast (no pun intended). Congrats
Thanks all! Wish I could be back there right now!
Drahthaar, the property I was hunting didn't have any eland on it. I did see several however at the Kimberly area earlier back in the summer and had them on my radar, but unfortunately couldn't ever get a shot at an old bull.
W.P., I was shooting my GW Flanagan 3piece longbow 54lbs @28" (52lbs at my draw) with carbon express heritage 250s. Some of the shafts were weighted up front with 100gr brass inserts and carried 125 gr DRT broadheads. The others had regular inserts and were tipped with 250gr VPA 2 blade broadheads.
Medicine Man, what camera set up are you using to get those shots? I'm thinking about a camera to film some of my hunts. thanks
ahawkeye, all my pictures actually came off of snap shots of videos, all of which were recorded on my phone. No fancy equipment or high dollar camera, mainly because I'm to cheap to buy it, but also I'm not that tech savvy and do not like dealing with electrical equipment unless I absolutely have to! :)
It's pretty amazing what a phone can do these days.
Medicine Man, you are a dangerous man with a stickbow! Awesome pics.
