Found this, thought it might be interesting. They have gone to the extent of freezing animals then scanning and cutting in half to show the actual size and placement of the vital organs. Very informative.

You might also consider these videos from Bow Hunting Africa_IMPACT. I found them on YouTube.

Very good info. Nice to see vitals and crosshairs on the animal. I'm going to set up targets and a cow bell to try it with my air rifle just as he did. Looks like a great and cheap idea for practice.

Thanks Stug for the info!

I also really like Your home country. I'm ready to go visit again.

I watched it again. I highly recommend this video. It really put into my mind that I definitely tend to shoot higher than ideal. It gives me confidence to shoot lower than I was comfortable with. Also that wildebeest image is an eye opener.

Stug, thanks for posting it.

This is an excellent video, viewing it should be part of the preparation of every hunter going afield.

I only intended to skim thru the video, but he got me...I watched almost the entire thing, save for some of the dramatic "stalking up, listen to the tune" bits.
quite interesting.

Some good info in the vid but what really annoys me is when they are stalking TOWARDS the camera which means that the camera is between the stalker and the prey which makes stalking BS. The camera should be behind the stalker for it to have any legitimacy either that or there is no need to stalk and a straight up walk is all that is needed

Man, I am guilty of not firing ten shots at targets per live animal. In fact, I think I shoot more animals than paper! Good video.

I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Tam Dl wrote on xausa's profile.
Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.
