Hi

Is there a marked photo for hunting Blesbok? I only ask because I am setting up the great pictures here for my kids to practice dry firing at them and the only one I could not find was Blesbok. If not no worries because I printed a picture off the web and I can just put a white mark on it. Thanks

I shot this Blesbok off the sticks on an overcast day at about 130-40 yards.He was in a herd grazing thru and there were 3 to choose from, this one being the lead. After watching a while,

I hit him low and it would have been a shoulder shot except his right leg swung forward right before impact.We had to track him for 30-45 min as he slowly hemorraghed out.Shot placement a bit higher would have prevented that. .300 win Mag 200gr Swifts A Frame

Got this 15 inch Blesbok from 140 metres. Shot placement was a little high but still in the lungs. Was down a slope over a bump and couldn't see the legs, hence the placement. Still went down very quickly. Shot with a Brno 30-06 with 200 grain Swift A-frame. Was my 1st Blesbok. Amazing to me was that considering the size it didn't weigh much more than an Impala. Was also blind in 1 eye. Waiting for the horns and that beautiful flat skin.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.
