    Very fortunate hunter to get one of those little speedsters.
    Congratulations.
    Lammie do you have any more details on the hunt? Blind, stalking?...

    A Legend in my own mind!

    Fantastic animal. One of the hardest ones I have found to hunt, very wary. They are in every predators diet.

    We hunted from a hide over water. We saw the little guy and I asked Lammie if I could try if the opportunity was given. Lammie agreed but wanted to make sure he was a male and a mature specimen. Within ten/fifteen minutes he was at water. He started to drink I got into position and he stopped drinking and looked up. He then turned his head away from us looking at something I drew, came to anchor and drilled a hole visually thru my point of impact, released and hit. The shot was good and I think it surprised Lammie a bit because he turned to me and said "you got him" .... I think I was shook up for a few hours after that.

    It was a real surprise for me and I feel extremely lucky. I only had 5 days to hunt and Lammie bent over backwards to make my short time a success. Lammie knows what it takes to get it done...

    Thank you, Lammie and Allison for the wonderful time and memories. I'll be back!!

    PS by the way Lammie put me on a great Impala, Nyala and Blesbok,,,, these were five very productive days!!!

    As a stick bow guy myself, what was your setup? Arrow, bow and broad head?

    Tom I shoot a 56" Big Jim Thunderchild (Hybrid type longbow) 50@28... I use GT 3555's with a 100 grain brass insert and Abowyer Boneheads with titanium inserts. This gives me about 600 grains of arrow and about 22% FOC... These arrows shoot almost as good bareshaft as they do fletched from my set up. Every animal I shot had an entry and exit hole... so penetration was very satisfactory. I left a couple for Lammie to experiment with his Bob Lee recurve. I have shoulder issues so I am forced to shoot a light draw weight but it was very effective.
