Charl, incredible spiral.
Congratulations on your success.

What is the story behind the picture?
Great Eland.Share the hunt..ammo..rifle with us.
well i used my custom built 30-06, Zeiss 7x50 Illuminated Reticle, with Norma ammunition in 180gr Nosler Partition, zeroed at 200m, shooting distance was 230m, walking and stalking, heard the eland walk, and waited by a tree for him to walk out into the clearing, and took the shot, he dived forward and ran of into the bush, 1oom from the i found him stone dead
You better go get a lottery ticket today. Or maybe you used up all your luck.
That is a great bull.

Good shooting.
Great to hear that clicking isn't it?!
Have a look under my galleries, i shot 4 bulls while up there, this was the first one,
i got pics from my taxidermist today, so excited, cant wait for it to arrive here end october.
Let me get this straight, you took FOUR Eland bulls on this Safari?
We may need to take your gun away so the Eland can have a chance for a come back in Namibia!
I can not seem to access the photos or your link for some reason.
Feel free to attach them to your next reply here.
Congratulations, Charl !
What a trophy! Aside from the size, it is also an old bull... well done and thanks for sharing.
