    Default A great Eland

    My good friend Gerhardo Steenekamp, owner of Elansbosch Safaris in the Limpopo, has sent me this picture of a 43 3/8 Eland.

    It was shot by a spanish hunter, using a 9.3x62, and should rank in the top five.

    That is a big animal. Wonder what a big eland like that weights on the hoof?

    Thanks for posting this.

    This guy still had some room to grow if you can fathom that.
    He still had brown shoulders (at least from this picture)

    Congrats to the successful hunter.
