Proud Louisiana hunter Michael Sperry showing off his trophies he shot with the most suitable calibre to bring to Africa for non dangerous game: the 30-06. In this case a Ruger M77 RS model.
A representative black wildebeest cow. The two very big bulls we were after got lucky and still roam the Free State plains :-)
This very big blue wildebeest bull pointedly proved to the hunter that unless the bullet is into the heart it will NOT go down no matter the number of shots. The horn spread was .5" short of Rowland Ward but will make Safari Club International Gold.
The 165 gr Winchester FailSafe bullet from the 30-06 took the 45" bull in the low throat in a frontal shot up a steep incline. It broke up through dry twigs and three pieces entered the neck - one of which went into the spinal cord and the kudu came tumbling down the slope.
