    Hi guys,


    Thought I'd post a pic of a big Blue Wildebeest I took today, quick stalk ended in a 42yard quartering away shot, the arrow entered just to the right of where my sight bracket is in the photo and stopped in the far shoulder. The 550gr arrow tipped with a 130gr Muzzy 4-blade out of my 80# Carbon Matrix penetrated the whole length of the body before being stopped by the far shoulder.

    That is some serious penetration on an animal this big...


    All the best,


    Engee Potgieter

    Wow. Looks like a pretty severe quartering away shot.

    Thanks a lot guys, had to take the shot I got as the bull was wounded by a previous client and he was already losing condition. Knowing the anatomy of an animal helps with such difficult shots.

    What an awesome looking animal buddy. That has to be so cool. Of you guy's may think the same thing about our animals here thought too. But nice shot buddy ! Such an awesome looking animal.
    The matrix did it job well. And i comend the shoot too. :) That Wildebeest seems like it would one tough animal. And such gorgous coloring though very awesome my friend.
