Beautiful Mike!  Gald it was with a bow and not a muzzleloader.

Would be interested in knowing more details like shot distance, draw weight and arrow weight, etc.  Cant wait to hear more. :-D

Very nice!  Congratulations on the adventure and trophies! I hope to get there someday.  Any plans for the gemsbok horns? I've seen some cool bows made from them.
