Bill joined us with his longbow and bagged a great buffalo and giraffe. The giraffe was taken on foot after a stalk brought him to 30 yards. One well placed arrow and the giraffe was down. His buffalo was shot at 15 yards after another careful stalk. Well done Bill!

Bill was recently inducted into the West Virginia Bowhunters Hall of Fame. He’s a great guy and savvy hunter.

He got about 15” of penetration on the giraffe. Ideally, a frontal shot on a giraffe is preferable in the depression between the shoulders where the neck is joined. The giraffe only presented a broadside but Bill hit it perfectly, staying away from the heavy shoulder.
