    We just finished with a hunt. This morning we were extremely lucky to have bow hunted a 7,5 inch Mountain Reedbuck that will score in the Top-10 if all goes well.

    The hunt was very difficult with the wind that kept swirling and we got busted 3 times before the client got an arrow off and hit this beautiful animal at 41y.

    Congrats! :)

    I took a picture of this animal while I stalked with my bow last year.

    Is it a Common Reedbuck?

    Thats a nice trophy Fritz!
    Now you made me take my mountain reedbuck down from the wall and measher it. Its longest horn are 19,4 cm. Would that be around 7,5 inches? Mine are shot with a rifle though.

    Nice photo of a Reedbuck. Not every day you see them open like that.

    A 7,6 inch Mtn Reedbuck is great! Rifle or not. You can be proud.

    He was just crossing a small opening towards me and stopped to look at some small Kudus when I took this first photo.

    [​IMG]

    He was only about 20 meters away and I guess he heard the small click from the camera making him noticing me.
    He didn't want to stay around after the second photo :)

    I had turned the blitz off and sadly they became a bit blurred because of the low light.

    Fine 7.5" Mountain Reedbuck. I was fortunate to collect a nice 7 3/8" x 7 3/8" Mountain Reedbuck this year in the Limpopo area of South Africa.
