    Here is a short clip of a successful Cape buffalo hunt with one of our repeat clients we affectionately refer to as "Uncle Ken". Uncle Ken did not feel he was up to the physical challenge of potentially crawling around through the brush and thorns for a week, so he opted to hunt his buffalo from a hide which we were happy to oblige.... Uncle Ken made a very good, slightly quartering-to, shot that resulted in another great old bull in the salt with a bow and arrow. Congrats Uncle Ken!

    Congrats Uncle Ken. Us old guys may need a few concessions as far as our hunting methods go but we can obviously still place our shots on target.

    Uncle Ken was using a Grizzlystik arrow shaft with a 200 grain Bishop Archery, 2-blade, single-bevel head. The total arrow weight was just over 950 grains.

    @Kusko

    Ken was using this arrow above with a draw weight of only 65lbs. at a 28" draw length. The heavy arrow with significant foc distribution and the right broadhead is the key to generating the momentum necessary for good penetration. His arrow sunk to the fletches.
