    DH, that hairdo seems to just be part of the trophy.
    Ses, Zim for Eland that should be interesting.
    I'll try and play show and tell with one from Namibia in July.

    E, where are your pictures? Did I miss them.

    This eland was shot in the East Cape with Russ Field Safari. He measures around 30 inches. I wish he had more hair on the forehead. But he does have a huge dewlap.

    enysee, that's a wonderful animal, and the hunter looks quite proud as well. Headed to the dark continent June 5th, will be joined by nkjonas, Willem from Koedoeberg says the grasses are quite high and the hunting has been great this year. Scott , will post some photo's from my hunt soon.

    ses,

    Just sat down to finally read this months edition of "Safari." There's a story on hunting Eland tracking style with Jonathan Collett of Touch Africa. Sounds like a hoot, good luck!

    E, that is a great Eland and
    Louis the ridges on your first are pretty amazing.
    Ok, now I have to join the hunt with Ses off to Zim and I'll chase one of these monsters down while I am in Namibia. (I hope)

    Hope for a mature one, hairdo or not!

    Thank you for the compliment Brickburn he was quite nice 35" but I would dearly love to take a old tank of a bull with really worked down horns but that one will have to be with bow LOL.

    Good luck in getting a massive old bull Namibia is a great place to go look for one that is for sure!

    Best Regards

    Howdy All!!
    I hope this pic comes through ok. Regarding the eland, I wasn't too concerned with the measurements of the animal but I wanted one that was old and hopefully out-of-service. This beautiful fellow is my favorite trophy of all. I am new at hunting, so I would welcome any comments. He was so massive!!!
    Cheers!!
