Impala
« on: December 09, 2008, 06:14:00 AM »
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.  ;)  I prefer just the skulls and skins than shoulder mounts. Plus they're cheaper to transport and ship!  :D

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

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