The Nyala is an incredibly beautiful animal. So unusual. All blind hunts? Any stalks?

Neat stuff.....   :thumbsup:

All blind hunts. I stalked one day for Nyala and got to 30 yards of one but he knew that I was there and didn't stay long and I didn't want to risk a shot with him knowing that I was there. The wind was my worst problem on this trip. So many times I had animals coming in only to be messed up by the wind changing at the last minute.

We did spend one morning walking/stalking and I throughly enjoyed it.....would have loved to have done more.
I like running 600 grain arrows with 4 Blade heads through animals with 60# + Bows!!!!!!

 :clapper:   Looks like you had a great trip.
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!!!

Your Zonkey is actually a rare species called an African wild ass.

Very cool to see one.
