This Black Wildebeest I took in South Africa in 2006 was the dream of a lifetime. I had dreamt of going to Africa since I was five years old.
The actual stalk was fantastic, after spooking the herd we had to circle the mountain to get the wind right. Once we peaked over the top of the ridge we saw the herd looking back at where we had been. Giving me a perfect broadside at the herd bull. I had to lay my cowboy hat on a low lying bush for a rest, and made a one shot kill at 165 yards with my Remington 700 in 8MM Magnum. The 200 grain Swift A Frame dropped him in his tracks. The pounding of my back by my PH was icing on the cake. Everyone who looked at my trophy said it would make Roland Ward. One of these days I'll have to find someone who can measure him. Thanks for letting me relive the moment.
