South Africa: Taking an old, Blue Wildebeest with the 270 Winchester

The brindled gnu, commonly referred to as the Blue Wildebeest, has a reputation for being a very tough African game animal. Here, an old Bull Blue is quickly taken out with one shot from the 270 Winchester right at 300 yards, to the delight of many empty South African stomachs. The meat is both prized and completely utilized for steaks and biltong, as it the hide and the rest of the animal. Hunters preserve both big game animals and natural habitat for generations to come. Without hunting of mature animals, overpopulation, starvation, and being chewed alive by jackal is often the unsavory alternative.
