    This video proves just how tough these African animals are! Although we initially thought this Impala ram was dead, he had other ideas when I grabbed his horns lesson learnt about making 120% sure the animal is dead! I put the full stalk part in to show just how the whole hunt down

    Yep that’s why I have seen every PH I’ve ever hunted with walk up and stick a rifle barrel or shooting stick in his eye!

    Yeah this buck especially bamboozled me, since I did touch his eye with my rifle the first time and he did not react. But yeah it was a close call and I'm just glad no-one got hurt.

    Very unusual I should think. On the one hand I would say just nerves that didn't know it was over, but the way it tried to stand and then back up was pretty weird.:eek::eek:o_O
