I was fortunate enough to hunt and successfully shoot this beautiful Black Wildebeest bull. The bullet entered the chest in a frontal quartering shot at 180 meters. The bullet clipped the bottom of the heart, went through the lung and destroyed the liver and this bull still ran 300 meters! Tough animals!

Always wanted to get one of them, but I hunt with a ML. Never could get close enough for a shot. Those buggers stay out in the open and I just couldn't get in range. Believe me I tried many times. I crawled more on those stalks then I did as a child Smile Congrats !
