My highlight this year was taking this Impala ram. It was a 28 meter shot. I used a 54" Windauer Wolverine longbow 68 # @ 27". Carbon Express Terminator Selects tipped with Zwickey No Mercy. Total arrow weight was 600g.
I shot straight thru the heart, he ran about 30 yards and piled up! Absolutely thrilling hunt that I will never forget!
Here's some pics...

What did you get in the end,
Europen mount or sholder mount??

You have to put your Steenbock up here, coz thats a walk and stalk that none of us will EVER forget.

I went for a Euro mount with a flatskin in the end. [Wink] I prefer just the skulls and skins than shoulder mounts. Plus they're cheaper to transport and ship! [Big Grin]

Haha...yeah I'll have to post that sometime! [thumbsup]

Tastes like chicken, Arwin! HAHA! [biglaugh]
No only kidding, it has a definite game taste, but I don't think it's taste as strong or gamey as some of the deer I've eaten. It's great meat and very healthy! [Wink] [thumbsup]

I'd love to have a set of spiral horns on my wall. Very nice!
