The ranch owner was not impressed with me giving this one up.  He said the German hunter waited in ambush for this magnificent animal for 3 days, yet I let it go.  In hind sight, maybe he was right.  I took this photo, then drew my bow on it with the 15 yard pin right on the vitals and said softly "bang you're dead".  It kept on drinking, so I took a second pic.


I am not in the waterbuck league.  Worse is the fact that the meat cannot be utilized unless you take special skinning precautions.  This one had a funny skew horn, (popular with European hunters).
