Cape Eland & Livingstone Eland Pictures

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?

Eland Anyone?

Please share your Cape Eland or Livingstone Eland pictures and stories in this thread...
To me Eland is the absolute best eating African animal!
Rug head taken in Free State, SA with a Swift A-Frame 300 grain 375H&H.

Skinned and hanging with missing front right shoulder from the shot. I'm 70" tall. The inside tenderloin was amazing.

Huge Livingston bull, July 22 Block L9 Niassa Reserve.
My best always.
My Cape Eland taken in April 2022. What a great adventure that was. Eland hunting feels similar to hunting elk in the foothills.
Eland shot on Buffelspan hunting Farm. 75 km north of Thabazimbi
Shot with a 300 WM at 120m. Headshot
Used a 180 gr Nosler AB at 2990 f/s
Horns 37”

Thought I posted this already. This bull was taken hunting with Mike Angelides in Lukwati North in early October, 2022. Used a 404 Jeffery with 400 gr. SAFs at estimated 200 yards.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
