My fellow hunters, i have been hunting most antelope in South-Africa and Namibia, but suddenly I find myself in unfamiliar territory and need guidance please... One of my colleagues (Frenchman) is bound to return to France soon and knowing my annual hunting ecapades, he requested me to hunt him a Zebra to take the tanned skin back to France. I have found a Burchell's Zebra to hunt for him so that is sorted. Himself and his wife will join me on the hunt - Omaruru / Otjiwarongo district. I will be using my 30-06 with 180 gr, but what i do not know anything about is hunting Zebra, or shotplacement for a trophy skin. I suppose broad-side is certainly out of the question as it wil ruin the trophy with 1 or 2 holes, thus leaving 2 possibilities - either a head shot or...the nearly impossible - from the rear where there is a hole allready...(joke) I understand from the farm that distance will be between 150 - 200 m. I will appreciate your guidance / input / experience with hunting Zebra (trophy skin) and shot placement on such a hunt, please.
