My Dream Kudu (The Ghost in the Bush)
We left for the Eastern Cape for our yearly hunt 07.29.2014. We had good successes throughout the week and shot some monsters. On Saturday it was our last day of our hunt and me and Eben decided that we would be hunting Impala for the day. He ask for a area that would definitely have some good Impala. I was dropped off at a place by Gavin to walk and stalk in Impala heaven.
As I was making my way through the bush I could see that there were some Nyala’s and also very nice impala just in front of me. I slowed down my pace as I was going through the bush and stopping every now and then not to alarm the animals. I positioned myself next to a bush as the impala were making their way and would cross in front of me. I was making ready to make the shot in front of me at 30 yards; a kudu cow made her appearance out of a bush opposite me and was looking straight at me. I could see a bull behind her in the bush but did not give too much attention as I already decided to go for impala.
After about a minute the bull made his appearance and all decisions made to shoot impala went out of the window and budget as well. LOL. I took the shot at 30 yards arrow went through the Kudu and got the top of the heart and double lung. Thanks Mathews for making all my hunting experiences special and memories to keep me a lifetime.
