South African Spiral Horn Slam with a primitive bow
« on: October 13, 2018, 08:14:06 AM »








Got a couple more to go!


Starting to look forward to my next trip to Sofala in South Africa the last of July and first of August and Louis and I are working on completing my spiral horn slam with a primitive bow. Louis has booked me a hunt at another concession that is loaded with Bushbuck to help me get this done. I will be there two weeks this year with two different great groups of guys each week.
I have a new Osage selfbow that I made this year in Maine at my bear hunt and bow building workshop. This selfbow will spit a 1000 grain hickory arrow the way that I like it, fast and quite! The bow is 60 lbs @ 26'' and ready to work. Sealed with my Natural Bow Sealer and no sinew backing just dyed with dye to make it look the way I like.

Beautiful Mike!  Wow those are some heavy arrows.  What broadhead are you using on them.  Looks like maybe a single bevel.  Need to take my wife on a sight seeing vacation next, then we also want to return to Namibia before I get to old to pull my bow. ha
Good luck my friend!

They look like good broadheads.  I used the Rocky Mountain Cuttroat single bevel 200 gr.  I was sure satisfied with them.  The first time I had used a single bevel head.

The only thing I lack to complete the slam is an eland!!!! Hope I can get back over there to get that done. Eland tenderloin is probably the best tasting meat on the planet earth!!!!!

I hear you about the Eland.  We ate some while there.  Actually all the game meat was great. 
I passed the first day on a nice Eland.  It was early and I didn't have it on my list.  Now I wish I had taken one.  Guess you can't shoot all the animals in one trip.  Have to save something for seed. ha

I have a friend that is headed to Namibia next week and another one that will be going in Sept.  Makes me jealous as I would like to go back again.  Maybe next year.

Great trip you had Mike
You worked to hard and paid a lot of money for that new bow. Why would you trust protecting it to anything less than Thunderbird Epoxy!!!
