    Maybe it's because I live in Alaska and am accustomed to shooting large animals like moose...but something intrigues me about Eland. I'm looking forward to hunting one this July when I head back to RSA. And those eland steaks on the brai are awesome! Anyone else planning on arrowing a big one this year?

    I used 1 3/8 grim reapers for all plains game. Performed perfect with my setup.. 70lb / 30" and 474gr arrow

    Only reasons I didn't get pass throughs on a couple animals, including this one, was sticking the offside shoulder with quartering away shots.

    Really big one. Walked him down. Two days and probably 30 Kms. Eden, Namibia and a .375.

    Eland wasn't originally on my list but if I see a mature bull I will definitely run an arrow in him! Leaving in 3 weeks and my wish list is getting longer by the day.

    All great pics of beautiful trophies. An eland is definitely in the running if I can get a croc secured first. Good luck on your trip!

    What a perfect looking trophy...worn ivory tips, big bases, nice rough on the head....exactly what I'm after! And I'm referring to the eland, not the hunter with the ivory color on his face ;)

    Bjorn,
    Have a new place to hunt, which I have just recently acquired. You need to get here ASAP. There is a snorter of an Nyala with your name on it. Walk and stalk Bow hunt.

    Wish I weren't in the pic..But it's good for size comparison. Next to the buffalo, the eland was my favorite hunt.
