    I had the opportunity to go do a bit of bow hunting last week.

    S'Dudla safaris really produced the goods.... as usual.

    Lots of space.

    The Razor Tricks really produced the goods on this Bluewildebeest

    He went down 80 yards from where he was shot.

    Gerhard, You got two great trophies there... It seems that you are as good with the camera as with your bow! I always enjoy your pictures :thumb:. BTW looks like you were trying to start a fire under that Impala's chin, haha! ;)

    Ha Ha Ha,

    We had to make sure we got the pose for the photos correct. lol

    The little Panasonic DMC-TZ11 camera did a great job.

    My next challenge is that big kudu in September and to get it all on video....
