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.

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.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!

Great trophy..!One does not hunt in order to kill; on the contrary, one kills in order to have hunted.
