    Sure many can remember Martin's great feat in walking and stalking a Vaal Rhebuck with the bow: https://www.africahunting.com/threads/kmg-hunting-safaris-head-ph-in-the-news.41633/

    Well, as the season is starting to slow down, he has had some time off this week. This time, he had his sights on a Steenbuck that jumped the string on him earlier the year at 60 odd yards.
    He set out after the same animal, and managed to track him down within his home range. After putting in a stalk on the animal, his shot was at 30 yards, and the ram managed to jump the string again. Not knowing what the sound was, the inquisitive animal returned to investigate. After not finding anything out of the ordinary, the ram turned around and walked away, offering a heavily quartering away shot at 38 yards. Martin explained to me that he aimed a foot in front of the animal and slightly high on his second shot. The Steenbuck ram jumped the string again, but this time, straight into the path of the arrow.
    The SCI green score on this ram, is at 15 14/16" and still requires 60 days drying time. The current No 1 sits at 15 6/16" , making this the pending NEW WORLD RECORD by bow.

    Marts, if you are reading this, you are a machine. Well done chap.
