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!
