Very special Eland hunt…
We left the lodge early in the morning after a nice cup of coffee to go and search for these elusive Eland Bull hiding in the mountains.
We drove up more than an hour to a nice high lookout spot where we can sit an spot, sitting there for almost an hour, seeing several Eland cows, we spotted 3 Eland Bulls on their own feeding out of a “Kloof” toward us.
Having the sun behind us and the wind in our face, we decide to split up. I walked with the clients and my son headed off with other Guide. They got a nice close shot first and bagged a really nice old mature trophy.
The other bull rand directly toward us and stopped just within good shooting distance, we dropped him as well . Was a really nice and exiting morning, but after we radioed in for some extra hands we only got home just before dark with almost a ton of really good meat.
