Zebra Hunt - Unfamiliar Territory
My fellow hunters,
i have been hunting most antelope in South-Africa and Namibia, but suddenly I find myself in unfamiliar territory and need guidance please...:worried:
One of my colleagues (Frenchman) is bound to return to France soon and knowing my annual hunting ecapades, he requested me to hunt him a Zebra to take the tanned skin back to France. I have found a Burchell's Zebra to hunt for him so that is sorted. Himself and his wife will join me on the hunt - Omaruru / Otjiwarongo district.
I will be using my 30-06 with 180 gr, but what i do not know anything about is hunting Zebra, or shotplacement for a trophy skin.:think: I suppose broad-side is certainly out of the question as it wil ruin the trophy with 1 or 2 holes,:rant: thus leaving 2 possibilities - either a head shot or...the nearly impossible - from the rear where there is a hole allready:ignore:...(joke)
I understand from the farm that distance will be between 150 - 200 m. I will appreciate your guidance / input / experience with hunting Zebra (trophy skin) and shot placement on such a hunt, please.
