Shot placement on lion, leopard & buff are the same as for any other African plains game. 1/3 up from the bottom and 2 inches forward of the crease behind the shoulder.

Giraffe are different. Take a look at the very recent thread on equipment to hunt Giraffe on this forum where Frank uploaded an shot placement image.

Where will you be hunting and with whom?

The best i've seen so far is a little booklet sold at most bowshops in SA called:
The perfect shot
Mini edition for africa
By Kevin Robertson

ISBN: 1-57157-319-4

www.safaripress.com
Printed in the USA.

Gives actual photos with the skeleton and vitals printed over the pics.

Hope it helps.

Ek het myne by The Bowshop gekoop so 'n jaar terug (my laaitie het hom intussen verle)
Weet nie wie doen dit in Natal nie.

Op safaripress.com se website kan jy hom direk bestel as jy nie hier rond regkom nie. So $19.

Sterkte

Hi Jason,

how often you was in S.A. for hunting ? I saw some trophy pictures in the US section of AT.
You kind of pictures from shoot placement look very interest, do you have more from this ?

Frank-

I have been in RSA and Namibia. I can't wait to go back, but have 3 young children right now and money needs to be spent on them. I long for a beautiful nyala and bushbuck. Here are some more of those photos.
