    Hunting Water Chevrotain with a bow...

    [​IMG]

    The first Water Chevrotain taken with a bow and the first legally hunted animal in Liberia in years. Chevrotain are 20 million years seperately evolved and are the most primitive of all ruminants. When I last checked there are only two listed in the gun category of the SCI Record Book. They are actually quite common in my hunting area in Liberia and I expect most clients to have success on the amazing little animals...

    Congratulations.Thanks for posting.

    Ruminant?
    I see hooves and the tail looks like a Reedbuck, but that head looks like a big rat.


    The Tiny Eleven!
    That should get some collectors motivated.

    Many years ago in CAR, we were lucky to get that funny and unusual animal... This is a Water Chevrotain, they live in the rain forest close to the water where they hide in case of danger.

    Oh no, no. no

    This little guy just has that "I just embarrassed the h**l out of you!" look about him

    I mean it would be one thing to be gored by a buffalo, mashed by an elephant or mauled by a leopard, really, if you lived the scars might be quite the conversation starter, but this little guy....

    This is the kind of evil critter that flys you 1/2 way around the world, sends you off into a hot steamy jungle, has you humpin' through the swamp for a couple of weeks to emerge as just one empty-handed sweat covered mosquito bite.

    Meanwhile,Mr. Chevrotain is stretched out my the river, margarita in hand, laughing his cute little a** off

    All kidding aside, looks like a very unusual and worthy trophy

    Any chance I can get Steve Kobrine to contact me?

    I've sent two emails through his Web page regarding Ghana, but have yet to hear a response.

    Thanks!
