Default Slick Tricks whistle !!!!

I was finally able to get back to one of my favorite stands on our hunting concession this weekend.

Its build in an big old lead wood tree about 30 feet of the ground. With a wooden platform and a camo net as walls.

On my way to the stand yesterday morning I bumped a couple of young impala rams at the mineral lick.

In the stand I got settled ASAP and then started to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

The lead wood tree stands in a thicket mixed with lead wood and tambotie trees. These trees are home to a wide variety of birds.

The morning passed slowly. At around 12:20 I saw a couple of young impala rams approaching the mineral lick.

They were mock fighting as the rut is still going this late in May. Every now and then one can hear that guttural nasal roar an dominant Impala ram makes to impress the ladies and intimidate the opposition.

During the rut Impala rams are very unpredictable and they can not be patterned at all this makes for a very difficult hunt compared to the Whitetail rut in the USA.

While watching the two young rams a nice mature ram walks straight to the mineral lick ignoring the youngsters...

He gave me a slight quartering away shot at 18 yards.

The M'Bogo (Destroyer 350) appeared in my hands almost as if by magic.

The HHA single pin settled on the middle of the vital triangle.

The next moment the white fletching disappear on the sweet spot and the Impala jumps and goes onto a death run. He went down 50 yards from where he received the shot.

Recovery was easy as there was a very good blood trail leading to the ram.



So how did the Slick Tricks Std perform???

Entrance wound



Entrance wound inside the chest cavity



Damage to the lungs...



Exit wound inside the cavity



Exit wound



The Slick Trick Std's performed flawless once again providing a large wound channel through both lungs and the top of the hart...

I think I can say...

The Slick Tricks whistled through this nice Impala ram...
