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

What a great hunt, I went with a compound back in 2006 before switching to recurves in 09.  I so much want to go back with one of my homemade curves.  Maybe I will once I get these lil kids reared. Really enjoyed the stories. Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding !!

I'm headed back to Namibia next August again and like you have found a good place to hunt with old school ethics on hand.

Thanks for the write up mate... Nothing like Africa.
