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).
