Day Four Day four started as a very cold brisk morning with temps in the high forty's. We were fortunate to get some great photos of the abundant giraffe population roaming both sides of the Kanana properties. Shorty after leaving the company of the giraffes we spotted a large herd of impala rams feeding off the edge of the road. Driving past them several hundreds yards the truck was stopped and we were off on a very slow nerve racking stalk that placed us fifty yards away from the main ram. He was standing in the middle of the herd with several smaller rams milling about keeping us from getting set up for a shot. After what seemed like an eternity the smaller ones moved enough to allow a shot and he was ours. We had set up on several good rams over the last three days but this was the only one we eventually had a shot at. I wasn't disappointed! 24" Impala Ram After loading the impala in the truck it was off to tracking fresh eland tracks for the next two hours with no sighting. J.P. radioed for the truck so we could break for lunch and start the eland search again. After picking up the tracks once lunch was finished we finally spotted them about thirty minutes into the trek but could not get a clear shot before they spooked and trotted off. The next thirty minutes we were close several times and almost run over by a bunch of zebra that winded us at the last moment before turning away. We approached a small clearing and there was my eland standing in the shadows of the trees and brush around him. It's amazing how an animal of that size can almost disappear with very little cover. A quick shoulder shot from the .375 H & H and we were off to the races before he laid down several hundred yards later and a neck shot put the monster down for good.
