I still have many animals I want from my first list, but after my hunting last year, some animals got added to it.
Last year I thought that an Impala would be nice to shoot and I would not shoot anymore of them after my first.
This changed, and the Impala is still on my list even after shooting one I am happy about.
But the animals that I didn't have on my list before is Giraffe(with bow only), Zebra(with bow only) and then it is the tiny antelopes.
I passed on a good Duiker last year with my gun and I decided not to shoot a very nice Steenbok while stalking with my bow. I feel totally fine with passing the Duiker, but I really regret that I didn't shoot the Steenbok.

On my list for next time will be another Limpopo bushbuck, eland, red hartebeast, another Zebra, and for sure a Nyala.Always room for another wart hog also.

The one common thing with those I have spoken with and mirrored here is that if you see a really good specimen of an animal that you didnt have on your list, take him ($$$ considered of course).
Many a hunter has told of the trophy he let walk only to regret it later. Few, if any, regret taking the shot.The journey is the reward.

My first trip to Namibia I had no intention of shooting the "striped pony", but once I saw how elusive & regal they were, I shot one. The cool rugs w/the faces still on helped! Next- - hyena.
