Congratulations on a fantastic hunt and story!

It took me 4 years to finally connect with my Eland bull!  

Makes me miss Africa even more!

Thank you for taking the time.  This was just great.  Congrats.

Bears can attack people- although fewer people have been killed by bears than in all WWI and WWII combined.

Outstanding. I want to go back to Africa so bad. Sounds like you have excellent shooting skills by connecting with those long shots.

Thanks all for the kind words.
Jon, in that place blinds were set for compound bows more than traditional gear. I used a very fast bow 60+# at long draw giving a very flat trajectory and fortunately on big animals. I usually shoot within 20 yards for hunting and practice up to 40 yards. So for that hunt the added 10 yards at my usual hunting range was not a big deal indeed.
In few days I will be again in the African bush. I can't wait any more!!
