The oldest Roan I have seen

Some animals and hunts are special and this one will remain in my memory.

It was towards the end of the season In Burkina end of April and hot as hell. That year the waterholes had all dried up and game was scarce and hardly moving during the day. Where there were herds of roan and buffalo there wasn't even one to be seen! As it was getting dark we spotted this old roan from the truck. My Brazilian client seeing the broken horn decided to pass him. I knew the other horn was big but it was the client's wish! We watched as he slowly walked into some tall grass and disappeared. Everyone started talking about what an old Roan he was and what a great bull. The client changed his mind and said I want to shoot him.......

We got down and walked towards where we had seen him last no sign! Fortunately the wind was in our favor after another 200 yards we saw him going slowly through some bushes, the sticks went up the 375 H&H went off and the rest is history.

30 inches+ on the good horn and with just one eye he was a real warrior.
