As we were walking near a stream, he appeared at the edge of a clump of trees, semi hidden by them. My PH said shoot, fast, and without the help of shooting sticks, I shot him frontally, in the lower chest, He turned to flee, and I shot him again, in the heart, killing him instantly.
All very fast and exciting, one of my favorite trophies.
Amazing how well you can shoot when done by instinct alone. Very nice Waterbuck.A Legend in my own mind! :A Fly: "one hundred grains in the right place is worth a thousand in the wrong." Captain Brocklehurst “[I]........... there is more hunting in Kenya today than at any time since independence. (Thousands) of animals are being killed annually with no control. Snaring, poisoning, and shooting are common things. ..... Think of a policy to regulate it, so that we can make it sustainable.” Dr. Richard Leakey[/I]
