    Hi All,

    This was my first Waterbuck that I've shot.
    Caliber that was used was a .308 Weatherby with 150g bullet.:eek:

    Not the right caliber or ammo for this antelope but if the opportunity arises and thats all you got then you make the best of it.:uhoh::what:

    Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out slowly, squeeze the trigger.:rolleyes:

    Good question, but not all Waterbucks have symmetrical horns.

    This Waterbuck bull was a very old bull and measured 29 1/2 inches before the drying out period, it will be in the Roland Ward record book @ 28 5/8.

    Hi Mokwepa,

    Waiting for you to get yours first, so that we can go and hunt the Blouwildebeest together.

    The hunting dates are still set in August if you're keen.
