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.

I ran across a message from you a couple of years ago while I was going through old emails. I have arranged a second bison hunt in Nebraska in September 2024, about 6-years after the first, when my supply of bison meat was exhausted. My email is [redacted].

If those Schells rings fare still available, I could use them. I'm willing to pay for the shipping.
