Way to go! That must have been exciting! Looks like you got great penetration with those VPA/Big Jim's 3 Blades. [thumbsup]

Great hunting report. Your eland story is one of the most exciting hunting stories I've ever read.

Thanks all for your comments.
Yes these VPA/Big Jim broadheads penetrated really well. I am a big fan of these BH since Big Jim started to sell them and killed a lot of critters with them. I didn't use 2 blades for the last 3 or 4 years but as we were told average shooting range being 25 yards or more and my arrow being a tad lighter I felt more secure using 2 blades for longest shots.finally, I am sure I could have shot those 3 blades all the way with same results though.

Laurent, great to read this report! I saw your eland on Kanana's Facebook page. I'll be there in three weeks, but hunting with my .375H&H. I really am interested to see more about opportunities for future hunts there with my bow when I gain more confidence and tick a few more boxes with my rifle. Anyway, hope you saved a few kudu for me and my hunting mate! Cheers, Ben
