If I had one regret about this hunt, I wish I had my .416 Rigby with me... Her name is Betty. I opted to use the PH's hire weapon, a beautiful .375 Westley Richards, but I wasn't too familiar with her or the ammo. Although my shots were all lethal( no gut shots or random locations) The eland would just not succumb immediately. Let me just say, I cried a lot that day..I highly advise one to take a high calibre weapon and ammo for a massive eland.. I don't know much at all with hunting, but I do know I wish I had my Betty on that day.
