3 Bucks with one shot??

The article in the links show a bloke who claims he shot 3 Blesbucks with one bullet from a 308 at 201m. The first two have wounds to the head and the third was hit high in the neck behind the ear.

Is this possible with a 308 at that distance?

It is possible. But it is nothing to brag about ,in fact you can bet it was not planed.

I was taught to know what was behind your point of aim and if there was another
animal or anything else that might be hit you passed on the shot .

Also if you did not have an impact area (Like shooting at the top of a ridge or in a tree
with nothing to stop the bullet after passing through or missing the game/target no
shot was taken.

I would not want to hunt with this guy , And if he were kin to me he would be looking at an
ass whooping unless he changed his name.

I won't get into the ethics thing but the game deserves better.

Sorry to get on my soap box

I could not agree more. I do not know the person but the area which they hunted is as flat as a table. So he should have seen what was behind.

Re: 3 Bucks with one shot??

I'm not so hung up here on ethics, etc, etc, blah, blah. I'm thinking where he hunted in Africa it's not as crowded as New York City park. Maybe his guide told him to shoot? Maybe the THRILL of the hunt got his adrenaline going a little too much to fog his judgment? I too could get a good post going on ethics, etc, and get some hoorays, but I don't know the circumstances to bash another hunter, so it would be a waste of my time.

I think it's quite possible. Blesbucks weigh anywhere from 140 to 150lbs and at 220 yards, I could see it happening; once in a life time shot.

I guess I will respond to your comment by simply saying there is no good reason to do this
because the other two blesbucks did not have the benefit of a aimed shot and call it hunter
ethics or what ever it is not something to brag about .

And the only way to plan a shot like that would be to have them line up at a hog trough
catch them eating and use a full metal jacketed bullet and send it straight through all three
of them and hope to find all of them.

As to excitement or listening to some one else as being a reason to make an iffy shot at best
there is no reason to make the shot until you are ready and know as much as possible.

I'm sorry you feel that this is OK but It also tells me that this guy is also dangerous and I would
never hunt with him or someone that condoned this behavior.

I am almost 70 years old and I have hunted most of my life and the reason I am still alive is
I won't hunt with someone like Dick Chaney or ride with someone like Ted Kennedy.
