    Not sure if it's me or the Swift a frames. Would like to see tighter groups. But surely acceptable for body shots

    Well, unfortunately for me, the legal system has stopped my hippo hunt. They will not allow archery equipment to be used on hippos in South Africa. I will have to wait until I can hunt in another country where they do not prohibit bowhunting on dangerous game. (They also denied my bow permits in RSA and Zim on elephant, rhino, croc and even hippo and buffalo in Zim). It is feeling like the only place I can shoot some of these guys with a bow is at a Rinehart 3D target tournament.

    It may well be, but it apparently isn't available on my safari. From an email recently sent by my outfitter/guide:

    Mine stepped forward just as I pulled the trigger. I was trying to shoot him in the ear.
