I managed to take this old battle scarred Impala ram today at 22 yards, he was quatering away when the Excalibur Firebolt tipped with a 4-Blade 130gr Muzzy broadhead passed through him, breaking the far shoulder. He only went 68 yards, but what is even more amazing is that I actually found a part of the lung on the blood trail, it seems that it was severed by the shaving sharp Muzzy's and fell out of the gaping entrance wound about two thirds of the way along the trail the ram took. This is the first time I have seen this while bowhunting, I have seen it a few times when hunting with a high powered rifle but never with a broadhead tipped arrow. Incredible.

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
