    I am a Tradional Bowhunter.
    I normally shoot a Hoyt GameMaster Recurve 70#, which had been sent forward to the Heja Lodge ready for my departure when, fate, offered me some more time...
    I just couldn't help myself... I went out with a the farms Compound with Sights and Release Aid...
    I have taught quite a few of Carin & Tielman's friends how to shoot a compound with sights & release aid since I had been there.
    So I thought I would use Tielman's coumpoud to harvest some more meat for the farm.
    I was looking to take an Oryx or two or three.

    I saw a Mature Kudu Bull about 12:00 and he must have seen or nosed me... He barked at me and took off...
    I must have taken one too many pictures or moved a little too much.

    Something caught my eye a couple of hours later,and I looked over to it... I saw horns everywhere... Like heads of asparagus...
    Eight large Kudu Bulls browsing toward me, very little wind and I thought I'll be smelt for sure...

    I was too scared to take pictures for fear of scaring them off...
    Almost three hours and two letdowns later, one presents a shot...
