    Default Judging my eland



    I just wanted to know what if any opinions one might have regarding my eland. I hope the pic comes through ok. Please forgive me but my ego needs some stroking, or not... I am very proud of this animal. He was my last and final hunt. Sigh. The last beast on my wish-list.
    Cheers All,

    Jane

    Thank you Chongo,
    Oh I also wanted to let my fellow AH members that I took him with a .375 Westley Richards. I hired this particular weapon from my PH Glenn Stockil on this hunt. He was kind enough to provide me with this beauty..

    Thanks,
    He is being worked-on as we chat.. I love that one of his horns is broken. He has so much character... I think he was past his prime. I pray.

    Congrats GIJane a fine animal, great brush, worn horns, a fine old boy one I'd say was past his prime and has spread his gene's many times. Good Job
    Enjoy life now -- it has an expiration date.

    Nice bull. Sounds like its time for you to make a new list.
    The journey is the reward.

    Thanks Nyati!!
    Where are you going? I have to say, the first time I saw an eland bull I was completely blown-away. The way their muscles ripple when they run, they are so large yet so agile. They are truly a magnificent animal. Good luck and I am quite envious... I was very lucky to have taken this animal. Very blessed indeed.

    Cheers!!
    Can't wait to hear more about your next hunt!!!!!

    At some point I will write a good story about an up-close and personal encounter with an eland's brush..(My dad's first eland). My PH thought it was clever of him to let me explore the area thoroughly with my middle finger.. I thought I was being scientific and educated but I fell for that one BAD!! It's actually on video.... When my PH did that he opened the flood-gates to constant practical joking from that point on... Let's just say I got him back several times... and then some.... It was a great ice-breaker though!!!
