A good centered shot right in the front shoulder will make these Impala's very sick, very quick! There isn't to much tracking if hit properly!!! And talk about some tasty meat!!!

Much to do is made over shot placement of African game, but like American game a behind the shoulder shot or a shoulder shot will put any of them down. If you miss the heart you will get both lungs...
I have no idea where all this confusion came from other than from someone attempting to be a self imposed expert on shot placement and couldn't find anything to write about..I guess its a pet peeve of mine.RAY ATKINSON
