Hello Everyone,

I put together a Plains Game Shot Placement Guide in a pdf file format, see attached file, from the photos on the forum for my families upcomming safari and I thought I would share it with everyone.

I hope it helps.

Art, I think you have gone a little too forward and too high on some of the shoulder shots. On the zebra you want the shot in the triangle.

Thanks Art, this puts all of the PG shot placement information and photos which are normally shown individually on the AH web-site into one location.

TMS, All the pictures came from the shot placement section on this forum. I read all the shot placement advice for each animal and the advice was always straight up the front leg 1/3 into the body. If you would let me know what I need to change I'll be glad to fix the file and upload it again. Zebra is on my list for this August, the shot placement advice said shot the Sargent chevron, where do you recommend I shoot my zebra?

Thanks for the reply, I look forward to your advice.

No problem, I can't modify the pictures any way the only thing a can do is change the text I added.

When on safari in Namibia, our PH kept referring to "shooting them in the crease" rather than through the shoulders. If you look at the shot charts, there is a spot immediately behind the leg that is a crease. We followed instructions (adjusting for angle of entry) and had great results - clean kills with short tracking.

Great job of putting the shot placement guide together Mr Lambart. That sure saves a lot of time and effort of copying and pasting. I haven't had any luck finding shot placement on a baboon, but then again I wouldn't think that shot would be to demanding. I hope to see you tonight at the KCSCI dinner, to see Charlie Austins presentation of his hippo hunt. I'm pretty sure I remember your son, Art Jr. saying that he will be attending.

The safest shot with the largest margin for error is the high heart double lung, on the point of the shoulder shot from the broadside position. Straight up the front leg and divide the body in half and shoot.

This shot will take out the plumbing above the heart, one or both shoulders, both lungs and the result is always the same.

In the salt.....

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
