I was told that it was a common practice to use the red light when hunting bush pigs at night. They are apparently oblivious to the light I am told. Though the PH had no experience with using the light on Cape Buff, he felt sure it would work the same way. I was never comfortable with using the light because I had a feeling it would rush the shot. It did. Having never hunted at night, it took me a moment to adjust to seeing the buff through my scope with the light shining on him. I saw his eyes glowing as he was looked straight into the light. The first shot I took on him was what appeared a dead on frontal heart shot. I learned later that the shot went over his head!! You have to know that every animal I have ever taken so far has always been a heart/lung shot. So I have NO clue what the hell happened. Thinking there was no way I could have missed him at such a short distance and concerned he was injured, when they flashed a light on him again, he was at a quartering broadside shot. So I fired again to take him down more quickly. He turned further as I fired and ran. It's at this site of the second shot where the blood was found. I shot off my Bog Pod tri-pod both times.
